28/03/2017 CLS group CLS and IDS join forces to enhance mines security

There are innumerable gold, tin, copper or manganese mines. The biggest open-pit mine in the world, in Australia, has a 13,000-strong workforce, covers an area of 12 square kilometers and is one kilometer deep. It aims to produce 750,000 tones of copper, 19,000 tones of uranium oxide and 800,000 ounces of gold every year. Such huge infrastructures are increasingly complicated to manage. CLS, through its subsidiary TRE ALTAMIRA, provides full synoptic views of mine movements, as all the structures subject to deformation can be regularly and accurately monitored. TRE ALTAMIRA, the worldwide leader in ground monitoring services using satellite InSARa and IDS GeoRadar, the leading provider of slope monitoring radar systems (IBIS) worldwide, are pleased to announce a new integrated monitoring service to mine companies, capitalizing on their expertise in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technologies. The integrated use of satellite and ground-based SAR enables mining professionals to extend the concept of safety monitoring in space and time. Learn more
