Groundprobe launches new geo-hazard monitoring system

GroundProbe has launched one of the industry’s most advanced doppler radars for reactive geo-hazard monitoring, the RGR-Velox.

RGR-Velox (Reactive Geo-hazard Radar) is a military-precision reactive monitoring and alarming system for tailings dam breaches, large slope failures, landslides and avalanches. It detects, tracks and alarms on moving geo-hazards in real-time, keeping people, assets and communities safe by giving warning of a breach or collapse.

The RGR-Velox is the latest technology to be born from GroundProbe’s industry-leading Research and Development (R&D) and product development programs, and the most recent innovation to be added to the company’s already extensive fleet of technologies and services. The company has grown to become a global innovation powerhouse and a trusted partner of companies around the world.

It’s GroundProbe’s first product release in reactive monitoring, with the company now offering both predictive and reactive monitoring technologies. Its pioneering predictive monitoring solutions (Slope Stability Radars and lasers) detect and warn people and communities of impending mine collapses, dam failures, rockfalls and landslides. The RGR-Velox, a reactive monitoring solution, tracks and alarms on already moving geo-hazards post-collapse, giving early warning to take action or evacuate through alarm outputs such as lights, sirens, pagers or phones.

GroundProbe Chief Executive Officer, David Noon said that the company has a customer-oriented approach to innovation and technology which has led to the development of this unique reactive monitoring solution.

“GroundProbe already has the industry’s broadest range of geotechnical monitoring technologies and services, yet we continually strive to design and develop new solutions to best meet our customers’ needs,” he said.

“By having our customers actively participate in our product development process, we are able to co-create value and produce the most beneficial solution offering.”

The RGR-Velox is the highest precision, fastest scanning and longest range doppler radar in the market. Military-grade hardware is combined with GroundProbe’s safety-critical software, alarming and systems to provide unrivalled confidence.
