Identify, locate, and remove geotechnical instabilities before they become problems
Aris makes geotechnical monitoring easier by combining multiple sensor data on a single display. These are then complemented with topographical, structural, geotechnical, and operational model information to give the clearest digital picture possible of your mine and operations. The surveillance module aids users in monitoring critical variables by issuing warnings when behavior departs from defined thresholds.
Aris is designed to manage information retrieved from different instruments, infrastructure, sectors, and geotechnical conditions, allowing users to assess monitoring variables according to site-specific conditions easily.
With Aris, you can group instrumentation and configure assessment ranges for multiple sensor variables, based on sector-specific geotechnical characteristics. This allows you to differentiate your monitoring activities for competent rock units, unconsolidated gravel, waste dumps, leach pads, or tailings dams, among others.
Deformations impact rock types differently, so Aris standardises the criticality evaluation for various geotechnical sectors or units by applying a global scale (or traffic light) that interprets local ranges and then translates them into usable metrics.
The Aris surveillance module continuously processes data readings received by the system based on user configurations. It will identify noise and three criticality levels (warning, alert, and alarm), and then send personalised E-mail messages when danger levels exceed thresholds established by the user.
Aris displays sensor data in easy-to-understand and georeferenced trend charts, isocurves, and trajectory charts to give you all the information you need. Correlating georeferenced data and time-series trends helps users understand climate, seismic, operational, and sensor data changes.
In addition to displaying instrument data, Aris allows you to view the operational status of your sensors, such as number of days with readings, number of days since last reading, instrument availability during the period, etc. Aris will also monitor these variables and issue alerts in the event of instrument failure.
Aris manages and stores all sensor information, allowing analysis of data for past trends.
Aris can integrate data from radar, total stations (prisms), extensometers, piezometers, inclinometers, accelerographs, InSAR, and other sources. In short, you can integrate data from any instrument that exports your data to a text file on a time series.
At present, Aris can integrate data from GroundProbe, Ibis, and Reutech radars.
For now, Aris is compatible with Leica, Trimble, and Topcon stations.
No. Aris is a complementary tool for integrating instrumentation for geotechnical monitoring, surveillance, and analysis.
Aris can link to databases, directories, and files with information from different types of dataloggers (e.g, DT-2011, DT-2011B and DT-2055), or receive data manually.
There is no limit to the number of instruments that can be integrated into the Aris platform. In fact, it will depend entirely on server storage capacity, which in the end is up to the customer.
Apart from the wide range of instruments supported by Aris, in some cases, you can also upload data from unsupported sensors by using a type of generic instrument.
When measurements are stored on instruments or dataloggers, Aris will automatically recover readings generated during the period when communication was down once it is back up and running.
Aris has supported pit, waste dump, leach pads, and tailings dam monitoring and surveillance. However, it is also possible to consider other civil works or mining infrastructure that has instrumentation.
The Aris server can handle an unlimited number of customer applications (monitors). The only limits would come from the type of hardware supporting the server and the bandwidth available for the customer-server connection.
