Only ASTERRA products using technology by Utilis can deliver the wide-area data and visualizations that let you see and assess underground conditions across entire potable or wastewater systems or the most expansive worksites. With ASTERRA, you can see every problem at once, evaluate its severity, and set your priorities using complete and solid infrastructure intelligence.
ASTERRA MasterPlan vastly improves operational efficiency by providing policymakers and engineers with a deployable pipe deficiency data layer. This data layer reveals the condition of underground water infrastructure, with pipes scored on a 1 – 5 scale, from a low level of deficiency observed to high levels of deficiency. Long-term maintenance and pipe replacement plans can then be developed using hard, proven data.
Worldwide, ASTERRA Recover is currently saving over 34,000 million gallons of drinkable water every year by letting infrastructure maintenance services and managers efficiently locate leaks to target for repair. With the technology to distinguish between different types of water, Recover reveals leaks to reduce water and energy waste, power usage, ground pollution, and the risk of significant fines.
Across even the largest properties, ASTERRA EarthWorks gives owners, ground engineers, and maintenance managers accurate assessments of underground moisture. This allows potential failure locations on roadways, under parking lots, and around foundations to be identified and managed before severe problems occur. EarthWorks penetrates to approximately 10 feet and is undeterred by pavement, forests, or weather.
Behind every ASTERRA product is satellite-based synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology, detecting subterranean soil moisture with Utilis-patented algorithms. It’s this technology that lets us see and analyze the actual moisture itself as it accumulates below ground, a capability unique to ASTERRA. The radar’s “eye-print” of over 1,300 sq miles (3,500 sq km) is larger than most cities and will revisit the same location every 14 days.
