DCI Releases TeraTrak R1October 23, 2019
Earlier this month our friends at Digital Control Inc. (DCI) released their newest bore planning product, the TeraTrak R1. A real-time terrain mapping tool, TeraTrak R1 easily creates continuous topography marked with utilities and waypoints. The TeraTrak R1 features: visualizing underground hazards, measuring and mapping precise elevations and distance along drill paths, and determining rig placement. With TeraTrak R1, DCI hopes to streamline job site bore planning to be more accurate, efficient, and cost-effective. Tactile is proud to be a part of the design collaboration. Congrats to DCI and the design team!

The new oscilloscopes simplify the development of embedded products, ranging from televisions to IoT and radio-based devices. We’re honored to have worked with Tektronix on the design language of their flagship products. Visit our 5 Series MSO case study for a look back on our first design collaboration with Tektronix.
