Cartacoustics’ Advanced Sonic Technologies™, or AST, uses sound to detect and locate buried infrastructure.  We have solved many of the problems of prior acoustic locating equipment, and we have successfully executed many projects for engineering firms, municipal water organizations and oil refineries.  

Searching for a non-invasive solution to locating underground structures?


Has a line strike cost you time or money?


Need a better way to locate underground structures?


Do you need SUE ASCE 38-02 QL-B quality infrastructure data?

If You Said “Yes!” to Any of These Questions…

AST’s unique acoustic sonde detects and positions underground structures made from any material and in all soil conditions (how it works). We consolidate many of these individual collections into a complete 3-dimensional picture of the underground. AST provides unprecedented insight into underground features because we detect all infrastructure regardless of material and we work in all soils and soil conditions.
