Starkville, Miss. – Camgian Microsystems announced today the signing of a new contract with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE). Leveraging its award winning Internet of Things (IoT) product Egburt, Camgian will design and build a novel platform for implementing secure, scalable smart infrastructure solutions across a broad range of remote assets that the USACE maintains such as locks, bridges, dams and levees. This includes providing critical operational and structural intelligence that supports improved system performance and maintenance.
“Enabling our nation’s civil infrastructure with advanced IoT technologies such as Egburt will lead to revolutionary improvements in efficiency, reliability and safety,” says Gary Butler, chairman and CEO of Camgian. “Moreover, insights gleaned from this new digital window into our infrastructure’s operations will serve as a critical resource for designing and building next generation systems for more effectively meeting the demands of our growing population.”
“USACE operates and maintains a vast array of aging infrastructure. Structural health monitoring and automated decision support technologies are critical to detecting problems with infrastructure and ascertaining the safety and reliability of these assets,” says USACE engineering lead for the contract, Matthew Smith, Ph.D. “Developing cost effective and flexible sensing and analytic capabilities is the key to bringing these much needed technologies into our daily operational processes.”
