Utilis is launching their second satellite-based soil moisture application. Hydro-Scan™ powered by Utilis, provides soil moisture data derived from satellites and visualized in SITE’s proprietary platform. The technology uses the same base technology patented by Utilis for subsurface potable leak detection and is used in over 250 utility networks worldwide, that identifies areas with underlying moisture issues to facilitate premature pavement failure diagnosis and remediation. Hydro-Scan™ will be sold in the United States exclusively through Chicago, Illinois-based SITE.
Elly Perets, CEO of Utilis commented that as Utilis makes the foray into property assessment activities, they could not have found a more honest and visionary company than SITE with whom to partner. They look forward to what lies ahead for the partnership.
SITE, currently provides site assessments to thousands of commercial customers across the United States, Canada, and Mexico, including some of the largest household brands in the USA and Fortune 500 companies. Partnering with Utilis, the world leader in satellite-based infrastructure assessment, this innovative technology uses L-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data taken from a satellite. The technical capabilities of L-band SAR allow it to penetrate and measure soil moisture down to 10 feet below ground.
Austin Rabine, CEO of SITE added that they’re thrilled to be launching Hydro-Scan™. Not only does it allow them to provide the most comprehensive property assessments in the world for their clients, but it also gives them a unique competitive advantage over all their competitors.
Utilis and SITE look forward to begin delivering this service to customers this month.
