REACTIVE MONITORING AND ALARMING SOLUTION
The RGR-Velox (Reactive Geohazard Radar) is a high-precision reactive monitoring and alarm system for tailings dam breaches. The RGR-Velox is the highest precision, fastest scanning and longest range doppler radar in the market, providing unrivalled confidence to alarm and alert when a tailings dam failure occurs.
For a comprehensive approach to risk-based monitoring, the RGR- Velox can be combined with GroundProbe’s predictive monitoring technologies and renowned support network, systems and services. Together, they deliver a complete, state-of-the-art monitoring strategy to better manage risk and ensure maximum safety.
Breaking ground with a 5.6km range and 90° x 40° scan area, the RGR- Velox offers the most extensive coverage across a far greater area than other dopplers on the market.
Delivering long-term use and ultimate reliability, the RGR-Velox is power efficient and built for rugged environments. Powered by a world- leading military partner with a proven history in advanced detection and mission-critical applications, the system is precision military radar technology. The radar can be left out in all weather conditions and has no moving parts.
Customisable to suit every scenario, alarm conditions can be set using a multitude of stackable parameters and filters across multiple alarm zones. By allowing sites to design an alarm that balances the real movement of non-geohazards from the debris flow of real geohazards, users are empowered to not miss an alarm and avoid false alarms. When triggered, the system outputs alarms through a range of channels and devices for immediate action or evacuation.
The RGR-Velox is low frequency technology for longer range, better handling of atmospherics and fewer false alarms. Penetrating further through rain, the system gives uninterrupted monitoring, even during rainfall. The lower frequency radar, combined with powerful signal processing and its suite of alarming tools, delivers much fewer false alarms than high frequency systems.
RGR-Velox’s integrated ultra-HD smart camera captures a wide dynamic range with stunning 4k resolution, 5x optical zoom and infrared mode for night vision. Incorporated into MonitorIQ®, the front- view image aligns with the radar image for a clear view of the monitoring area, allowing for real-time remote inspection and alarm verification.
MonitorIQ® provides powerful and easy-to- understand data visualisation paired with high-resolution imagery of the scene. Showcasing a plan view map with alarm zones overlayed, all tracked objects can be seen moving through the scene in real time alongside the front-view image of the monitored area from the ultra-HD camera. Gathering and visualising all the alarm notifications from multiple devices on the one screen is GroundProbe’s Alarm Centre. Safety-critical by design, it continues to run in the background even after closing MonitorIQ.
With built-in GNSS and North-finding capability, or the ability to survey in the device for fixed installations, the RGR- Velox automatically geo references every object in the scene. With just one-click, users can determine the speed, radar cross section, direction, and location of objects in relation to the device, precisely visualised over a plan view map of the scene.
