Technology Spotlight: RJN Deploys Device that Provides 360-degree Image Captures of 100 Percent of Structures

RJN Group, Inc. has yet another option for manhole inspection in its growing portfolio of evaluative tools: It is called Panoramo SI, offered by IBAK, and it proves to be very helpful due to its technologically advanced capabilities.
