Many factors are in play during excavation and mining activities. Things move, change shape, crack, leak and degrade over time. For the safety of personnel and equipment, mining infrastructure must perform without failure. Let MS Scorpion’s Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) deploy a monitoring system that increases safety while optimizing operational and maintenance activities of your mine.Learn More Get in Touch
MS Scorpion’s SHM system provides rapid assessment of our customers mining systems to determine their current condition. SHM is the recognized method for increasing safety and operational efficiency. And our unique approach provides our customers with continuous uninterrupted ground movement detection, with configurable accuracy from 1 km to 100 km. This makes it possible to reach remote areas, where events, such as slope failure, may otherwise go unnoticed.
Our team of experts has designed a comprehensive Structural Health Monitoring System specifically for mine infrastructure to analyze the forces and factors that contribute to damage, including: design, construction and deterioration of materials. MS Systems fiber-optic sensing systems, deployed in combination with distributed fiber-optic sensing cable and MEMS, provides precise, real-time information about infrastructure changes. With so many factors impacting the construction and ongoing operation of mines, our customers appreciate the peace of mind they gain through deploying a monitoring system from MS.Get in touch with one of our expert team members to discuss your goals today.

MS Scorpion provides a comprehensive system to monitor and assess the real-world factors affecting mine construction and operation. With MS Scorpion’s SHM your company will have the information you need to diagnose and repair problems as they arise.
MS Scorpion’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 personnel and mining equipment.
Actively monitor critical components to assess current condition, and establish a maintenance plan for performing repairs to increase longevity.
Put a system in place to keep track of damage to your mining tunnels (e.g. radial displacement) or delivery road (e.g. surface damage) projects during construction and throughout the mine’s lifespan.
Establish a system to actively monitor the implementation of new construction technologies and determine their effectiveness.
Get an immediate status update about the mine’s health, including possible damage and failures, following adverse events.
The MS Scorpion Structural Health Monitoring system can be deployed to effectively address both continuous monitoring and portable testing needs.
Customers seeking a dynamic system to perform diagnostics on the current health of a structure will achieve their goals with the MS Scorpion system.
For customers looking to collect data and provide ongoing information on the behavior and health of their structure, the MS Scorpion SHM platform is ideally suited for long-term monitoring needs.
