ORFEUS is a full scale EU-financed demonstration project aiming at progressing the previously developed Horizontal Directional Drilling drill tip Radar that was proven under the preceding project entitled “Optimised Radar to Find Every Utility in the Street” to a commercial stage.
Technical refinement, laboratory and field testing, technical specification and prototype system validation
Demonstrate a unique, high performance, commercially viable product that will increase significantly the HDD use
Technical conferences, workshops & co-operation with utilities, HDD industry, standardisation bodies, research organisations, other end users
The consortium published a questionnaire seeking the views of interested parties on the ORFEUS technology. You are kindly invited to fill it in.
Interim research and demonstration findings will be presented at technical conferences devoted to no-dig technologies and microwave engineering and will be published in journals.
Video clips to demonstrate the drill tip radar system in field conditions as well as multimedia information on project results.
Publication of regular newsletters and project related dissemination material.
