We are working on research, development and implementation of innovative, flexible, scalable, reliable and affordable sensing solutions for various applications, with the emphasize on infrastructure degradation. We are exploring a few directions of development - fiber optic sensing for detection of chemicals, optical imaging for corrosion detection and vibration monitoring for structures and equipment. We use the latest advances in nanotechnology in order to develop fully integrated wireless sensing networks, with simultaneous real-time high speed data acquisition, transmission and analysis. Wireless sensor networks consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors (for both physical and chemical parameters) that cooperatively pass their data through the network to the main location; also, through the same network we can control the activity of the sensors. Data harvested by the various sensors is transmitted through the network nodes (small basic “computers” that consist of processing units - Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, or MEMS - micro radio transceivers, and power sources that use energy harvesting modules for solar power) and it is stocked and remotely analyzed. Research and development are done in collaboration with the Civil and Urban Engineering Department of NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
We also offer owner's representation and we have a partnership with DIF USA and DIF New York to offer expert reviews of large scale projects for government agencies and developers. Our purpose is to bring to our US clients, both in the private and public sectors, the same services that helped the firm's clients in Israel save millions on large-scale construction and infrastructure projects through optimizing costs and streamlining processes. We ensure coordination among the various entities involved in the projects - not just clients, architects, engineers, and construction prime contractors, but also specialized subcontractors - to ensure compatibility in planning and execution, and minimize delays and corrections when all the components are finally combined. Our clients include MTA Capital Construction and large private developers.
