It’s Almost Here: Wildfire Season. What Challenges Do You Face?

Get peace of mind with Satelytics' vegetation management algorithms.

  • Problem: Detect potential wildfire risks along ROWs.
  • Solution: Software monitors entire ROW.
  • Benefit: Prevent disaster with directed remediation.

It’s in the news again. Wildfires in the American West the past few years have caused loss of life and property. And while utilities are pouring billions into shoring up their ROWs and infrastructure, completion of vegetation management efforts could still be years out.

In the New York Times, “What keeps us up at night is the exposure, how many miles, how many things could go wrong,” said Matthew Pender, the director of PG&E’s community wildfire safety program. “It only takes one tree.”

Satelytics’ machine learning software inspects and alerts our utility customers to vegetation and encroachment threats over an infinite number of miles or area surrounding their assets. Our science applied to satellite imagery takes human weakness out of the inspection process. That “one tree” will not be overlooked. Cloud computing power can process the billions of pixels associated with these vast areas in a matter of minutes and send alerts directly to personnel who need to respond.

Satelytics’ utility customers are hiring our “software defenses” to protect and minimize consequences on their infrastructure in the following areas:

  • Vegetation management for growth, decline, and focused cutting
  • Tree speciation, identifying vegetation which might pose risk
  • Tree height for efficient cost-conscious focused cutting programs
  • Vegetation health, overall health or specifically in the growing season
  • The two “Rs:” remediation and restoration, how effective, and have thresholds been achieved for release of financial bonds
  • Vegetation moisture levels, burn scar analysis, impact of wildfire and identifying risks, potential landslips or slides from lack of vegetation

Satelytics' aerial monitoring removes risk — no vehicles, no drones, no helicopters, no planes — keep your personnel safe! Our application directs people to those areas that need attention only, resulting in cost-efficient actions only in threatened areas. Our platform,, uses AI to alert you to risks ahead of them becoming reality!
