OSSCAR bridge scanner

The On-Site-Scanner (OSSCAR) is a bridge scanner, which use the non-destructive evaluation to give information about the inner structure or construction of a concrete bridge. OSSCAR stands on special vacuum cups, which make it possible to fix it non-destructive on the concrete. As a result it is possible to determine points of fracture in the reinforcement. The scanner combines three different measuring tools (radar, ultrasonic, Foucault current) to get all specifications of the material. The usability of OSSCAR is simple, you can use it as a single person because of its low weight and the intelligent connection of all three scanner-axes.
