SP3 Microseismic Monitoring System

Price: on request.


Micro seismic monitoring is a well established technique for monitoring ground and structural movements. SureWave research has revolutionised the sensitivity of existing micro seismic monitoring methods to the extent that pre-cursors to catastrophic events can now be detected many months in advance.

The SureWave micro-seismic system is centred on a unique signal processing unit. The patented technology filters out all extraneous 'background' signals, such as mining plant movements, allowing the identification and processing of specific target events. This unique ability to screen out interferences from other sources gives the SureWave system unparalleled sensitivity and detection range.

In short, SureWave Technology has broken the seismic 'sound barrier'; a momentous technological breakthrough created by the ability to 'see-through' the background noise.

The Surewave Advantage

The key features of the SureWave system include:

  • ability to monitor from surface mounted transducers – expensive boreholes are no longer required
  • detection range of up to five kilometres horizontally, and to depths of 650 m
  • capable of rapid deployment using a portable system for emergency applications
  • sophisticated software system that provides visualisation of the event history, without the need for post processing

SureWave Applications

The suite of applications offered by SureWave include micro seismic detection of:

  • trapped miners underground
  • hydrogeological movements such as underground streams
  • movements in pit walls and roof structures
  • stability of high walls and slopes
  • progress of fraccing
  • the integrity of surface and underground structures such as high rise buildings, road and rail tunnels, bridges and overpasses

SureWave Technology is also defining the standards for the security industry, by providing surface tracking and illicit tunnel detection systems. This system has been approved by the UK Department of Defence.
