Remote monitoring for structural movements

A microwave interferometry based system for remote static and dynamic monitoring, IBIS-FS interferometric radar is used on bridges and other structures including buildings, historical monuments and towers.

In static, the IBIS-FS is ideal for:
    Structure load testing;
    Structure displacement and collapse hazards;
    Cultural heritage preservation.

In dynamic, the IBIS-FS is best used for:
    Structure resonance frequency measurements;
    Structural modal shape analysis.

In either state, the IBIS-FS features:
    Remote sensing: Real-time remote sensing at up to 1 km with no need for equipment to be installed on the monitored structure.
    Accurate measurements: Measures displacements of as little as 0.01mm @ 0.5km range. No standard instrument can achieve such accuracy.
    Ground vibration removal: Built-in accelerometer to cancel the self-induced vibrations transmitted to the radar from the ground (IBIS-FS Plus).
    Sampling: Structural vibration sampling up to 200 Hz.
    Always operational: Operates day and night and in all weather conditions.

Benefits of the IBIS-FS include:
    Increased structural health monitoring efficiency through the use of a non-invasive vibration monitoring technique;
    Accurate and remote monitoring of a bridge or structure;
    Reduces the time necessary for static or dynamic bridge structural testing to just a few minutes;
    Real-time data on structural vibration and natural frequencies;
