The IMS seismic monitoring system is designed for installation in the harsh environments of open pit and underground mines. The technique and IMS system is also suitable for many non-mining related situations like underground storage of nuclear waste, regional seismic monitoring from surface, monitoring of dams and monitoring of hydraulic fracturing for geothermal and oil&gas projects. Generally, these environments are more benign than mining conditions, and so the IMS equipment enjoys a reputation for ruggedness, fault-tolerance and flexibility.
Note that all seismic system illustrations and descriptions describe typical system layouts. In reality, all system layouts are customized to suit the application environment and the customer’s needs.
