Setting the department apart from competitors are its capabilities for multidisciplinary testing and analyses. Supported by other in-house labs, investigators can go beyond sampling and inspection to conduct reliability and life data analyses based on mechanical, materials, and electrical test results to predict the remaining life of a component and quantify the probability of failure for a given time window. 

The group also conducts routine nondestructive testing (NDT) inspections and dielectric testing of aerial devices and insulated tools such as bucket trucks, hot-sticks, and linemen safety equipment to ensure the equipment is safe for use.
