Why Remote Sensing?

Cost Efficient

For the cost of a cup of coffee, you can survey over 7 miles of unpaved road.


Assess the condition of your roads in the half the time with five times the data.


Accurately know the crown and distresses, such as potholes, on your roads down to the centimeter.

The First Research of its Kind In The World

The Aerial Unpaved Road Assessment (AURA) system includes the collection and processing of data, which creates automated detection of road distresses for use in unpaved road asset management.
