Future Railway awards geotechnical information platform funding

ITM Monitoring has announced that it has jointly secured funding with the British Geological Survey for a geotechnical information project from Future Railways.

The two organisations will work to combine ITM’s Calyx web-based monitoring software with the BGS’s Prime remote geoelectrical imaging system to form Calyx-Prime.

According to ITM, combining the two systems will raise the standard of existing industry data management tools by introducing time-lapse images of the ground, showing how subsurface processes such as groundwater movement, drive internal property changes and contribute to ageing and deterioration of geotechnical assets.

ITM has said that the future vision for the combined solution is to stream near-real-time information linking the subsurface causes to surface effects, stimulating new approaches to asset management using remote information delivery systems.

Commenting on the agreement, ITM head of asset monitoring Nick Slater said: “The funding will enable development of an innovative new solution which will revolutionise the approach to asset management and provide a new software tool that can improve the overall effectiveness of any geotechnical or structural monitoring project.”
