Waterway monitoring requires and “always on” monitoring solution. Because the flow of water never stops, MS Barracuda’s Monitoring System continuously collects and analyzes changes to water level, speed, volume, and flow to ensure rivers and channels remain operational. Especially important to the monitoring of man-made channels, our network of sensors can detect permeability within channel walls to alert operators to leaks. With MS Barracuda’s market leading technology in place, your waterway infrastructure can benefit from improved insights and better plan for repairs and improvements.Learn More Get in Touch
