MSR Standard Series


The MSR Standard Series generates its 3- Dimensional own synthetic map from highly accurate radar measurements, delivering millions of data points in real time. It’s able to track sub millimeter slope movements at distances of up to 2500 meters. The system is fully autonomous and can be remotely accessed from anywhere in the world. With improved atmospheric algorithms, the MSR requires no user- defined known stable region, providing geotechnical data when needed most.


MSR Standard Series

The design

Real Time Monitoring

With a maximum scan speed of 20° per second, the MSR Standard Series covers broad areas in only a few minutes. The advanced parallel computing architecture processes data while actively scanning. Lossless data compression algorithms combined with high speed wireless communication hardware provides instant remote access. This means that slope movement information and alarms are immediately available. Anywhere. In real time.

True 3D Data

Unique to Real Aperture Radar technology, the MSR Standard Series produces its own a high resolution true 3-Dimensional point cloud. Each point is individually resolved in range, azimuth and elevation to the highest degree of accuracy. The result is smaller failure mechanism tracking, without relying on Digital Terrain Models or camera images.

Exporting MSR data

The MSR generates millions of 3-Dimensional surveyed data points. Each point is individually georeferenced and contains spatial and movement data which can be exported as a Digital Terrain Model or as a Comma Separated Value file. That makes MSR data compatible with any third party mine planning and design software packages.


The MSR seamlessly interfaces with data from a variety of Automatic Total Station systems and extensometers. Real time radar data is displayed along with color coded vectors that are scaled accordingly providing an integrated monitoring solution.


Designed and built by a company with its roots in the military defense industry, the MSR Series is engineered to reliably operate in the harshest of field conditions. The system can operate in high wind conditions, heavy rainfall events as well as in temperature extremes. With next generation atmospheric correction algorithms the need for Known Stable regions are eliminated. This means reliable radar data. Available when it’s needed most.


The class leading ScatterX software makes analysis and interpretation of slope performance straightforward. Through an intuitive graphical user interface, the complex tasks of setting up scan regions and defining alarm settings are simplified. The result is an easy to use interface so advanced that it will change how risk is managed. Learn more about Scatter X >
