Trimble has introduced the latest version of its Trimble® 4D Control™ monitoring software that supports the IBIS-FM radar device, which is manufactured by the GeoRadar Division of Ingegneria Dei Sistemi (IDS). IDS pioneered radar technologies for a variety of applications such as slope stability and structural monitoring in open pit mining. The IBIS-FM radar device continuously scans in all-weather conditions and detects movements with sub-millimetre accuracy for distances up to 4 kilometres. Due to its long-range capabilities combined with high resolution and fast scan time, the device provides reliable fast alarm responses. The addition of IBIS-FM support in Trimble 4D Control software 4.5 can trigger early warning detection of slope instability to improve safety for workers in open pit mines. Radar technology plays a significant role in effective project safety management in monitoring operations involving highwalls, excavated faces and potentially unstable slopes, which create hazardous work environments.
