Pavement Data Collection: We utilize state-of-the-art lasers, radars and cameras to capture accurate and repeatable pavement condition data. Our pavement data collection technology is designed to rapidly collect, process and deliver objective data to enable our customers to respond to pavement condition reporting mandates, as well as be good stewards of taxpayer funds by making informed roadway maintenance decisions. Our certified and scalable solutions enable us to deliver data for projects ranging from 50 miles to more than 50,000 miles of road survey.

Pavement Management Systems: We assist our customers in making informed and objective roadway maintenance and rehabilitation decisions through the implementation of optimized and data-driven pavement management programs. We help our customers choose from widely available off-the-shelf pavement management software, as well as develop custom tools. We configure pavement performance models to accurately predict future maintenance needs and develop multi-year paving plans and corresponding budgets. Our data-mining capabilities help uncover performance and operational insights that our customers leverage to make informed decisions.

Disaster Response: We provide rapid-response transportation infrastructure inventories to help first-responders and emergency management staff identify the functional status of their communities’ roadway and right-of-way assets. Our solutions are integral in planning post-disaster cleanup activities, reconstruction planning and reimbursement requests to FEMA or state emergency management agencies.
