Our Equipment

Road Surface Testers (RST)
The RST is capable of collecting automated pavement condition data and right-of-way asset data in a single pass. The RST incorporates lasers; distance measuring instruments; accelerometers and rate gyroscopes; inertial navigation based GPS; and high resolution, forward, downward and side view digital images and video. Through the use of the pavement data collection vehicles’ laser-camera array, the RST collects objective pavement surface distress data, roughness, and rutting.

Falling Weight Deflectometers (FWD)
FastFWDs and Dynaflects provide nondestructive, multi-sensor dynamic deflection data for pavement structure analysis. FWDs have a long history of collecting dependable, repeatable data, and may be used on asphalt and concrete roads.

Surface Friction Testers (SFT)
The SFT locked wheel friction tester measures the friction of roads, crosswalks, and bike lanes. High friction is important to the safety of drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists in dry and wet weather conditions.

Sidewalk Surface Testers (SST)
The SST is uniquely suited to assess the condition of sidewalk, pathways, and trails. The device can collect hundreds of linear miles quickly and efficiently. The data collected by the SST is critical in helping agencies stay ahead of legal liability and to ensure walkable, safe sidewalks.

Our fleet of automated data collection vehicles performs pavement surface distress surveys, rutting and roughness surveys, structural testing, multi-camera video logging, and is capable of creating and updating right of way asset inventories.

History

IMS has collected pavement condition data across USA and Canada since its formation in 1985. With a highly professional and specialized team, together with the latest technologies and software, IMS has become a recognized North American leader in pavement management and right of way asset management.

IMS Infrastructure Management Services, LP has been wholly owned by International Cybernetics Company, LP since 2022. The partnership brought together the practical know-how of IMS with the equipment and software expertise of ICC. Learn more about ICC.
