New York Power Authority (NYPA) has awarded uncrewed traffic management (UTM) company ANRA Technologies a five-year agreement to provide mission management software that will enable NYPA to utilize robotics for transmission line inspections and observation necessary for power restoration after weather events. The software will assist NYPA in meeting the clean energy strategic priorities of its Vision 2030 strategic plan and support the authority in advancing New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, a nation-leading clean energy agenda.
ANRA’s mission manager software will allow NYPA to manage its robots safely, reducing risk for front line NYPA employees that otherwise might be exposed to hazardous conditions when using more traditional methods of inspecting infrastructure and monitoring equipment. This technology will help NYPA improve shared situational awareness across its enterprise and assist in reducing response time and improving workflows for everyday operations and maintenance projects as well as weather events and other emergency response activities.
“As the nation’s largest state public power organization, the New York Power Authority promotes innovation that supports energy efficiency, the development of clean energy technologies and programs that will help reduce greenhouse emissions. We are pleased to be able to use systems like the Mission Management Software that will help us meet our VISION2030 strategic goals as we work to help create a more resilient New York powered by clean energy,” said Brian Saez, senior vice president for Power Supply at NYPA. “With smart technology like this Mission Management Software, NYPA staff can improve awareness and operational information sharing throughout our enterprise and communications with our stakeholders”
