Ground monitoring

S-scan is a complete geophysical solution for monitoring changes in underground structures in order to anticipate deformation and collapse (cavities, sinkholes or subsidence). Dedicated to railway, mining, road infrastructure or civil engineering markets, S-scan will ensure the safety of your infrastructure.

S-scan is composed of different services adapted to your needs:

  • Audit: a quick and efficient ground evaluation for risk prediction
  • Long-term monitoring: a tool to track ground issues in real-time

S-scan is a full geophysical solution comprising survey design, acquisition solutions and processing to deliver results to the asset owner.

Detection and monitoring of near-surface instabilities and cavities

The best seismic equipment

We integrate the best sensors in the market with field proven reliability: 3rd generation MEMS accelerometers and DAS / fiber optic sensing to accurately characterize near surface conditions.

Seismic imagery expertise

We apply patented algorithms for Passive Multi-seismic processing based on Sercel’s long experience in geotechnical and oil & gas geophysics.

Full integrated solution

End to end solutions for audit or long term monitoring, with localized or widespread infrastructure coverage, to detect sinkholes and cavities.

From audit to continuous, real-time and permanent imaging

Passive technology

Source free and unmanned monitoring, based on light and easily installed field acquisition systems.

Fully automatic

Autonomous system with remote dashboard for real-time quality control of sensors and data.

Cloud deliverables

Cloud computing and reporting, with fast 4D results available via online web viewer.

Versatile acquisition system, enabler for other applications

Train monitoring: traffic, flat wheels

Multi-use platform for asset and rolling stock owners. Data can be analyzed to provide information about the condition of rolling stock running gear.

Environmental monitoring: intrusions, rock fall, landslides

The S-scan solution can integrate measurements from many different sensors and generate multiple on-demand automated outputs. R&D efforts are underway to further extend the range of capability for monitoring changes in the surrounding environment.
