Barr hosts IDS GeoRadar workshop

October 29, 2018

Barr recently hosted IDS GeoRadar at our Minneapolis office for a workshop on radar scanning applications and products. IDS manufactures radar systems for ground and infrastructure monitoring. 

Radar monitoring systems are used in the mining industry to detect movements in highwalls and stockpiles. These systems are relied on at many mines and construction sites to give near real-time updates of slope stability. 

IDS’s trailer-mounted radar systems work by repeatedly scanning slopes or structures. The radar can then detect slight changes in the slope, providing an early warning of potential instability. By better understanding the systems and how they are implemented, Barr’s geotechnical, civil, and mining engineers hope to better serve clients with an expanded toolbox of monitoring solutions.
