Sustainable water management starts with MUD® subsurface intelligence.
Water is essential for industry, communities and individuals to survive and thrive. Pressure on the water supply is expected to increase in the coming years as populations grow and climate change affects water availability worldwide. The world is facing a critical shortage of clean drinking water and at the same time, flooding is a global threat.
Technical innovation is essential for the responsible development, conservation and use of groundwater resources. MUD® locates and monitors surface and subsurface water resources to detect and track pipe leakage, detect new water sources and measure soil saturation around assets.
Flood defense system
Flooding is one of the most costly and dangerous global natural disasters, with negative impact on public safety, property, infrastructure and the environment. The frequency and severity of flooding continues to climb due to extreme weather events, structural failures, human activity and natural processes like landslides.
Sustainable water management
Governments, consultants, and water companies need advanced technologies that include subsurface intelligence to respond to increasingly difficult financial, operational, and environmental demands.
Working remotely from space, MUD® penetrates ice, snow, vegetation, rocks, soil and industrial cover to locate and monitor surface and subsurface water sources across wide areas that help to safeguard critical water supplies.
Proactively locate and track subsurface water presence, courses and wells needed for domestic, municipal, industrial, ecological and agricultural uses.
Scientifically robust water data supports collaboration and advances innovative water solutions especially when shared across sectors and jurisdictions.
See through pavement, concrete, soil and rocks, down to 100 m, from space, to locate hidden leaks. Reduce water waste and prioritize replacement of faulty and broken underground pipes.
Give shape to the integration of surface and subsurface in infrastructure planning and development by linking subsurface water to soil stability, carrying capacity and building site preparation.
Locate subsurface water sources
Water is essential for industry, communities and societies to survive and thrive, yet water scarcity is one of the main problems faced by every continent. Water scarcity issues often go unresolved until catastrophes arise.
MUD® provides a sustainable water management strategy that proactively locates and tracks subsurface water systems for domestic, municipal, industrial, ecological and agricultural uses.
SOIL SATURATION MAPS
MUD® detects and maps water saturation
By classifying soil water retention, by percentage, MUD® gives a detailed measurement of soil and water interaction, measures water volumes and visualizes the direction of water flows. Monitor soil saturation around assets, well in advance of catastrophic failures and without the use of expensive probes.
Measure and model peatlands in 3D
Peatlands are globally important ecosystems. While they cover only 3% of the Earth’s surface, peatlands store more carbon in their soils than other types of ecosystems. Countries and environmental agencies with net zero targets know that peatland carbon stores are critical to tackling CO² emissions.
MUD® penetrates surface land cover and water to measure and model complex three-dimensional peatlands to provide accurate volumes, boundary lines, and exact locations.
