Explore New Radar for Detection of Rockfalls, Avalanches

Rockfall in open-pit mines is the most common cause of accidents and death, creating a high demand for monitoring of rockfall and avalanches. This type of monitoring is needed not only in mines, but also in other applications, such as civil protection and public safety. In this episode, Francesco Coppi, Product Manager at IDS GeoRadar, explains how the RockSpot radar system can locate, track, and alert on rockfalls up to 2 kilometres, avalanches, and other fast-moving events, such as mud and debris flow.
