IDS GeoRadar’s unrivalled expertise in innovative slope monitoring radar has once again led to a technological revolution by introducing the next generation radar system based on the ArcSAR technology.
IBIS-ArcSAR is designed for fast deployment and robustness to ensure the highest safety standards to manage risk conditions with confidence. Whether it is a strategic or tactical positioning, IBIS-ArcSAR delivers unprecedented flexibility and performance to make critical decisions.
IBIS-ArcSAR is the first and only radar in the mining industry to provide 360° pit coverage capabilities from one single equipment. The system leverages the widest and longest range (5,000 meters), and the shortest scan time (360° in 40s; 180° in 20s) as well as built-in GNSS for auto-geocoding.
The outstanding spatial resolution of 10 million pixels sets new standards for critical safety monitoring by covering the full scale of slope instabilities from sub-bench to broad wall movements even at long distances. Quality of data is always guaranteed by IDS GeoRadar’s state-of-the-art atmospheric correction algorithm and smart data management system.
IBIS-ArcSAR is also the first full 3D SAR radar system utilizing the proprietary mimo antenna array and automatic DTM survey. The system also features integrated panoramic HD camera providing real time imagery of pit walls and immediate visualization of critical areas.
Integrating seamlessly into the Guardian FPM360 suite, IBIS-ArcSAR can dramatically expand overlap areas of multiple IBIS radars to exploit the unique TrueVector capabilities, delivering a rich geotechnical environment. One solution combines radar data, prism displacement and slow movement analysis into a single versatile platform without the need to invest in additional software.

2 With low-temperature kit
Powerful and user-friendly, the IBIS Guardian software manages slope stability risks in open pit mining operations. IBIS Guardian enables fast interpretation and therefore fast reaction time for vital real-time information delivered by the IBIS-ArcSAR system.
Reliable data with flexible alerts in real time
Highly accurate displacement data is provided to monitoring specials in real time using the most advanced Automatic Atmospheric Correction algorithm. Easy analysis of mines’ radar data is possible using the Eagle-Vision camera to add fully geo-referenced 3D maps and high-resolution panoramic images.
Unique Multi-Scale processing and the ability to store long-term projects enable resolving up to four orders of displacement magnitude, making this an essential tool for the support of:
- Mine Design
- Mine Planning
- Risk Mitigation Strategies.
IBIS Guardian offers alert messaging options and comprehensive geotechnical analysis tools. Monitoring specialists are immediately alerted in the event of slope displacement by means of various instant messaging options such as email, SMS or pop-up alerts.
Advanced data integration for even clearer understanding of slope stability
Automatically import different total station and GNSS datasets, for example from Leica GeoMoS© or Trimble T4D©, to enable even clearer understanding of slope stability. Monitoring experts can compare prism and GNSS displacement trends with IBIS radar data to understand movement behavior much faster. Stereonet charts are also available for quick and immediate representation of displacement data.
Through an advanced automatic export tool and the unique External Public Interface (API), IBIS data can be exported and displayed in third-party platforms for geotechnical monitoring.
Full Pit Monitoring 360 & TrueVector
IBIS Guardian offers Full Pit Monitoring (FPM) capabilities, stitching merging together data sets from multiple IBIS radar systems onto a single radar map3D georeferenced topography. Real-time full pit data provides monitoring experts with a complete view of the entire pit for managing slope hazards.
Benefits of the IBIS Guardian FPM include:
- Streamlining tasks from multiple workstations into one unique software platform
- Reducing work processes
- Saving valuable time needed for making decisions
With TrueVector technology, IBIS Guardian is able to resolve the spatial direction of displacement vectors for hundreds of thousands of overlapping radar pixels being monitored simultaneously by two or more radar systems, with sub-millimetric accuracy. No prisms, markers or reflectors are needed on slopes to rapidly resolve displacement information.
Beyond the mine
Thanks to the powerful IBIS data server, monitoring projects and critical alerts can be accessed from anywhere.
There is no need to deal directly with radar data or interfere with IBIS Guardian projects. Using integrated IBIS Dispatch, dispatch operators are provided with easily understood, real-time alerts coming from IBIS units or even multiple pit operations.
Corporate offices can also take advantage of IBIS Dispatch to centralise alerts generated at different mine sites.
