Trimble has released the latest version of its 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-millimeter accuracy for distances up to 4 km (2.5 miles). Its long-range capabilities, combined with high resolution and fast scan time, enables the device to provide 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.
