Geopraevent launches rockfall radar

Aug 4, 2016Rock

Geopraevent’s latest rockfall radar detects even small rockfall events in all-weather conditions as well as darkness and reliably triggers an alarm within seconds. Transportation routes or threatened areas can be automatically closed off in case of rockfall, allowing people in the hazard zone to move to a safe place and prevent others from entering the zone. The alarm system complements or even replaces structural protection measures – at much lower costs and lower impact on scenery and environment. Additionally, the system is easy to install and offers a flexible solution that can be repeatedly adapted to the problem. Further advantages are:

  • more than 1 km range and a coverage of 1 km²
  • all-weather suitability (works in rainfogsnowfall)
  • works day and night
  • quick installation (few hours)
  • cost-effective compared to construction measures
  • easy data control through the Geopraevent online data portal
  • integration with smartphone and tablet
  • easy to combine with other technologies and alarm-functions
  • combination of multiple radars for larger coverage possible

The radar is often combined with other alarm and monitoring technologies such as interferometric radars, webcams and several alerting technologies.
