The regular inspection and maintenance of road and rail networks can prevent massive disruption to travel and can be a major source of saving acting pro-actively and concentrating the remedial work when and where needed.
IDS has developed specific solutions for Railway Ballast survey (SRS SafeRailSystem) and Roadbed survey (RIS Hi-Pave).
The IDS Interferometric Radar solutions, IBIS-FL and IBIS-FS, provide a novel approach to the remote monitoring of both static and dynamic structural behaviour of bridges and other infrastructures.
Slope Monitoring in the Surface Mining Industry is becoming more and more routine practice, supporting mining staff in geotechnical risk management. Interferometric radar technology, embedded in the IBIS-FM solution, has emerged as a leading tool for this purpose. The success of slope monitoring radar is attributed to its ability to rapidly measure slope movements with sub-millimeter accuracy over wide areas. Beside IBIS-FM, IBIS-FMT and FPM360, IDS also provides a Ground Penetrating Radar solution, RIS One & RIS Plus, for soil detection. RIS One & RIS Plus is the ideal solution for bedrock and lithological profiling, fracture characterization and ground water profiling.
In this highly competitive world, infrastructures such as buildings, bridges and roads, are drivers of productivity and support economic growth. IDS Civil Engineering services & products span from Ground Penetrating Radar solutions (Aladdin, RIS Hi-BrigHT, RIS One & RIS Plus) for non-destructive surveys of buildings providing information on concrete thickness and inner-rebar structure, presence of wall cavities, presence of water and detection of structural defects to Interferometric Radar solutions (IBIS-FL, IBIS-FS) for monitoring structural movements and vibrations.
Archaeology and the cultural heritage field can greatly benefit from reliable and non-destructive analysis to map areas and structures present in the subsoil without the need for excavation. IDS solutions provide both non-intrusive ground penetrating radar (Stream X, RIS MF Hi-Mod, RIS One & RIS Plus) for subsurface and surveys and interferometric (IBIS-FL, IBIS-FS) radar solutions for assessing the structural health of cultural heritage.
IDS products and services for the Geology and Environment industry span from Ground Penetrating Radar solutions for non-destructive detection of underground structures, bedrock and lithological profiling, snow and ice thickness measurements to Interferometric Radar solutions for monitoring slope instability, landslides, ground settlements (IBIS-FL, RIS One & RIS Plus and Stream X).
IDS offers a full range of non-intrusive utility detection and mapping products which exploit the most advanced ground penetrating radar technologies and methodologies. Services include: Real time detection of buried utilities (pipes, cables, etc.) for excavation planning and damage avoidance, utility location design and coordination and cost estimates, mapping of existing utilities . IDS range of utility products satisfies every need: Opera Duo, the entry-level for on site detection; RIS MF Hi-Mod, a modular product for no-site detection and mapping on road, footsteps and difficult environments; Stream EM, the innovative system for extensive utility mapping.
GPR’s unique sensitivity to non-metallic structures embedded in soil, rocks and building materials results in GPR seeing use in diverse applications such as search and rescue, tunnel location, intrusion detection, UXO, landmine and buried IED detection
The equipment used for this application is the most versatile IDS product, RIS One & RIS Plus, which can easily be operated with different trolleys and modules depending on the specific environment. Based on the application other suitable products for this application are Aladdin and RIS MF Hi-Mod.
