Groove Closure

RPS use point lasers to determine groove depth and map closure percentage

For safety reasons, it is important to determine the depth of the transverse grooving on the runways surface.  Groves can close, especially in areas of high aircraft turning.  The PaveScout system uses point lasers to determine groove depth, which can be translated to groove closure percentage.  This can be exported as a spread sheet or geospatially.
