Ensuring long-term integrity
Our patented SoundPrint® technology detects and locates failures in high-strength steel wire, strand or cable through continuous, non-intrusive remote monitoring.
Innovating The Right Tool For The Right Job
Bridge owners and engineers finally have a tool that helps ensure the long-term integrity of post-tensioned, pre-tensioned, cable-stayed and suspension bridges.
By continuously monitoring for failure of tensioned steel elements, SoundPrint® actually helps save money on other bridge inspection and NDE (or non-destructive testing & evaluation) techniques.
Once our technology generates an understanding of the frequency and location of wire failures, operators have the data they need to choose the proper cost-effective investigative techniques to further evaluate the extent of the deterioration.
Plus, the information generated by SoundPrint® can be seamlessly integrated into the owner’s own Bridge Management System so they have access to the data they need when they need it.

Featured Case Study
MaineDOT – Maine, USA
The Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) manages 2,919 bridges and spans in total, inspecting 2,414 in 2014.
The Waldo Hancock Bridge, located in the state of Maine, was completed in 1931. Its deck carried one lane of traffic per direction, while two narrow reinforced concrete sidewalks were used for pedestrian traffic.
