Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to develop a lightweight tool for regularly inspecting the guy wires that support large antenna towers. In particular, the objective of the proposed exploratory development effort is to prove feasibility of the advanced concepts described in the following, and to develop a design of such a tool. The tool should have one simple haul-up line and no power or data transmission lines. In particular, In particular, it is proposed to built a small-scale version of the tool in order to demonstrate feasibility of the underlying concepts and to gain practical experience with the instrumentation.
