Advanced Non-Destructive Bridge Deck Condition Assessment

Infratek Solutions Inc. specializes in delivering practical and effective performance-based asset management systems fueled by cutting-edge advanced technological platforms for critical infrastructure sector. Established in 2014, Infratek has enjoyed working with Federal Highway Administration, various State Transportation Agencies, and Toll Authorities to bring practical technological advancements to tackle their infrastructure asset evaluation and management problems. Capitalizing on the experience gained through the development and field deployment of the commercial edition of the first Robotic Assisted Bridge Inspection Tool (RABIT-CE), Infratek is scaling up and enhancing this technology to be more responsive to the day to day asset management needs of bridge owners. Based on numerous interactions with owners, such needs primarily include (a) accurate and quantitative assessment of current condition, (b) estimates of remaining service life and deterioration rates, and (c) recommendations for interventions and their influence on remaining service life. Iowa Department of Transportation has expressed an interest in commissioning Infratek to provide its next generation bridge deck assessment and analysis services to their selected bridge inventory. To meet this objective, Iowa has initiated a research study with the goal of exploring and refining how advanced assessment technologies may be deployed to best serve asset management goals. The research team is excited to be engaged in this mutually beneficial partnership and are committed to develop, maintain, and customize the systems and underlying processing and analysis engines to match the needs of Iowa DOT. The team does not view this opportunity as simply another service contract, but rather as a partnership that will allow them to refine their offerings based on the insights and experiences of Iowa DOT engineers and staff to better serve the state’s needs. The team is pleased to provide the following preliminary proposal for consideration.
