At the heart of MS Gecko’s system design is to enhance the safety and reliability of high-speed transportation with a continuous and accurate monitoring system. To do this, we utilize leading technology, such as Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor technology, to provide a flexible system that can be implemented along existing rail infrastructure. FBG sensors offer advantages over traditional track circuit technology. Utilizing Fiber-optic sensor technology, these small fibers (< 1mm diameter) can be bonded to existing rail without disruption by existing equipment. In the event of a rail breakage, photo detectors within the network will automatically pinpoint the breakage to within a meter for ease of troubleshooting and repair.

Data interpretation and diagnosis
MS Gecko Monitoring System of Railways and Subway will provide rapid detection of any rail breaks, rail buckling, train presence and speed detection, weigh-in motion, wheel flat spot detection and fire detection in the real time. You will get every piece of information you need to allocate the exact spot and identify the nature of the problem, so that you can make an informative decision.
Deliver complete solutions using fiber-optic and innovative, high degree of freedom (DOF) sensors.
Reliable data collection and analysis will detect early performance degradation in a timely manner, to limit risk and effects of potential disasters.
Monitor railways and subway accurately to determine the current condition of the rail tracks and structure in order to allow the owners to increase safety margins without any interventions.
Increase knowledge on the structural behavior of railways and subway with particular reference to the optimization of materials used and new technologies.
Monitor damage or failure caused by extraordinary events such as a fires, earthquakes and explosions. This allows engineers and consultants to make preliminary structural assessments.
