With over 20 years of industry knowledge and experience, VAC Group understands the importance of airport runway and taxiway assessments. With the use of our Sparas technology, designed for the quality capture of pavement layer conditions at speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour, our technicians can provide accurate information to identify runway faults that have the potential to develop into serious, and costly problems.

The ability to cover large areas at speed is a major benefit to the airport industry where assessments need to be carried out in tight timeframes in order to minimise disruption to normal airline operations.

Specialty services our expert Earth Radar technicians can provide for the sector include surface characteristics and layer assessments - including Boeing roughness and groove closure assessments, ground penetrating radar, utility mapping, concrete investigations, and location services.
