In nature, things move, change shape, crack, leak and suffer the ravages of time and weather. MS Gecko’s Structural Health Monitoring services provides your business with early detection of ground movements, potentially saving lives and avoiding costly property damage and material loss.Learn More Get in Touch
MS Gecko’s fiber-optic sensing systems are ideally suited to monitoring the slow and continuous ground movement that can ultimately lead to catastrophic property damage.
Slope failures constitute the most expensive geological hazard for many areas of the world. Unfortunately, by simply implementing an appropriate slope-monitoring plan these events could have been prevented.
Existing geotechnical monitoring systems are often incomplete, and fail to provide a clear picture of geotechnical changes over time. MS Gecko’s system fully considers the contributing factors, and includes sensors for temperature and ground movement to provide real-time geotechnical monitoring over large and often inaccessible areas.
With a monitoring system in place, ground movement can be detected prior to a complete failure, allowing for appropriate remedial action to be taken. Contact us today to learn how MS Gecko’s SHM services can help your business avoid the costly damage caused by slope failures.
Data acquisition systems
Data transfer and storage mechanism
Data interpretation and diagnosis
MS Gecko provides a comprehensive system to monitor and assess the real-world factors affecting geotechnical features. With MS Gecko’s SHM your company will have the information you need to diagnose and repair problems as they arise.
MS Gecko’s Distributed Structural Health Monitoring (DSHM) approach provides our customers with a complete solution, utilizing ultra-sensitive sensors, such as: MEMS, fiber optics, etc.
Monitor infrastructure degradation and receive warning notifications to perform preventative maintenance and ensure safety of structures, rail networks, etc.
Actively monitor geotechnical parameters to assess current conditions of existing infrastructure, and establish a maintenance plan for performing repairs to increase longevity.
Put a system in place to monitoring slope settlement, and surface damage, and other geotechnical parameters.
Establish a system to actively monitor the implementation of new construction technologies and determine their effectiveness.
Get an immediate status update about infrastructure health, including possible damage and failures, following adverse events affecting the location’s slope and surface.
Our philosophy is simple: the sensing system needs to match the reality of its environment. Given that a point in space has six degrees of freedom (DOF), our solution has been to match this complexity with an integrated combination of sensors that can be deployed to suit each customer’s unique needs.
