REAL TIME MONITORING SYSTEM
GECO designs and provide with acoustic antennas for remote monitoring and the prevention of natural disaster.
Equipment: n >= 3 sensor nodes deployed in a proper geometry in an area of ~ 100 x 100 m and equipped with infrasound and/or seismic sensors. The use of antennas instead of single sensor provide with an efficient noise removal and a proper 360° detection and interpretation of recorded signals also from remote.
Power supply: autonomous via solar cells or battery or the system can be connected to the mains.
Data transmission: in real time 24/7 with cellular or satellite network.
Data elaboration and signal detection: in near-real-time and in automatic on a dedicated cloud server.
Data visualization and detections notification: via SMS and/or on dedicate web platform for control room and mobile users.
Real-time monitoring and automatic early warning of debris-flow occurrence from remote
Debris flows constitute a severe natural hazard and studies are performed to investigate triggering mechanisms and to identify and evaluate early warning systems capable to promptly detect their occurrence.
The solution GECO provide with allows the effective detection of the early stage as well as the following evolution of the debris flow at a safe distance, hence offering the opportunity to automatically detect and timely alert the ongoing risk.
Infrasound real-time monitoring and early warning of Lava fountain and pyroclastic flows
The use of infrasonic antennas at distances of several km from the eruptive vents allows the explosive activity to be effectively and safely monitored.

Real-time, continuous monitoring of glaciers fronts from remote
The melting of glaciers is a very topical issue that can have a strong impact on the safety of mountain areas during the summer periods with a strong tourist presence (e.g. Alpine arc) and innovative monitoring techniques are strongly requested by local administrations to predicted and mitigated the risk. Glacier front emits infrasonic waves related to Ice calving and/or water discharge which can be detected at distances of few to several km. The acoustic antennas can complement other techniques to remotely and passively get insights into glacier dynamics with high temporal and spatial resolution.
Real-time monitoring of Avalanche
Infrasound measurements can help in gaining more insights into glacier dynamics, with high temporal and spatial resolution. As such, the detection and identification of inaudible sound complements other (remote) monitoring techniques.
