NDE-DAQ Platform

The NDE-DAQ is a versatile and expandable Nondestructive (NDE) Data Acquisition (DAQ) Platform for Quality Assurance/Quality Control and infrastructure condition assessment. Add on NDT Systems as you need them...

The NDE-DAQ is a Data Acquisition Platform designed to connect to any laptop or tablet running Olson’s Windows-based software. This 4-channel multiple-system platform is a compact, lightweight, but robust battery powered system offering mobility and simplicity for use in the field by one person. Collected data can be fully evaluated at the job site or saved for later processing in the office.

The NDE-DAQ accommodates several add-on NDT test/software system options, making it a valuable tool for nondestructive testing and evaluation of civil structures at an attractive price. This platform, paired with the user's Windows Device, offers complete data acquisition and processing capability for six different add-on test methods. There is no need to return the equipment when adding systems.

The NDE-DAQ is field tested and proven through frequent use by our NDT consulting company, Olson Engineering. Optional training for both hardware and software is available. Visit our website often to keep updated on our offerings of new test capabilities and equipment.


Hands-on training is available for all of our NDE test methods at our Wheat Ridge, Colorado (USA) location, which is a suburb located approximately 15 minutes northwest of downtown Denver. Training may be available at your location by one of our agents/engineers upon special arrangement.
