Hardware and software overview

IMS offers a digital, intelligent, high resolution seismic monitoring and control system, featuring on-line seismological processing, analysis and visualization. The system is easy to use, and runs under Microsoft Windows or Linux.

In addition to seismic, a number of non-seismic geotechnical sensors can also be monitored. Alarm, control, and/or scram functions are available whenever signal(s) or certain parameters exceed preset levels. The system is modular, allowing for easy expansion and it can vary from a single stand-alone data acquisition unit with dial-up facility to a sophisticated network connecting a number of stations via cable and/or optical fibre and/or radio. Technical support is available 24 hours/day.
