A Canadian Patent No. 2574595 prepared by Christie, Parker & Hale LLP, one of Southern California’s leading intellectual property law firms, has been granted. The patent covers major aspects of how utility asset data is precisely collected, stored, managed and distributed as well as providing tolerance zones and warning signals to prevent damages to utilities during construction and groundbreaking activities.
ProStar‘s Chief Executive Officer, Page Tucker stated: “We are delighted to see this key patent issued, as it covers all aspects of how utility and pipeline asset data is collected, stored, managed and displayed, as well as how buried infrastructure can be protected from groundbreaking equipment using precision GPS, Mobile and Cloud technologies.” ProStar originally designed, developed and applied for protection on many of these technologies well before GPS and mapping technology were commonly available.
