The DAMP (Device for Analysis of Moisture Profiles) probe invented by IMEP-LAHC entered a new phase in its development this summer. After a six-month project to bring the technology to maturity, tech transfer specialist Linksium is now actively seeking a partner to manufacture and commercialize the product under license. DAMP addresses two markets: agricultural soil analysis and snow cover analysis.

The probe measures the amplitude of a stationary RF wave to simultaneously create a profile of several relevant parameters. For soil, the probe measures temperature, moisture, and fertilizer content. For snow cover, it measures total depth, liquid water content, and water equivalent—data useful for managing snowmaking at ski resorts and for predicting avalanches and water levels in reservoirs.
