Ultra-Low Frequency Pipe and Joint Imaging System

The primary objective of the proposed project is to develop, test and independently assess the commercial viability of a pre-commercial pipe and joint imaging system. Through this project, this product will be further developed, tested and demonstrated to prospective commercial partners that it can locate pipes and cast iron joints in all types of soils, including some of the most difficult soils for imaging; clay soils. As an added feature, this product will locate with accuracy both the horizontal AND vertical position of the pipe or underground facility and it will distinguish pipes from other underground clutter in dense environments that are typical of suburban or urban areas.
