EarthSearch announced it has expanded its LogiBoxx pipeline monitoring system to include the ability to monitor underwater pipeline and infrastructure systems for such areas as gas, electrical cables or for companies with underwater assets and oil drilling operations.
The technology is based on low frequency radio frequency and will provide the ability for organizations to monitor and locate underwater pipelines in the event of any breaks or disruptions due from sabotage or natural events.
“As we currently see in Japan, the ability for system analysts, and utilities companies to pinpoint, in real-time, disruption and damage to mission critical underground and underwater pipelines are a major issue when faced with reestablishing these systems,” said Kayode Aladesuyi, the Chairman and CEO of ECDC.
The LogiBoxx system provides detection technology that can communicate with data extraction devices, or above water receivers, to provide accurate event and precise location data.
Aladesuyi added, “The ability to use radio frequency with sensor technology to quickly identify problems within a system, and focus the resources needed to bring those services back online could prove very cost effective for utilities, privately managed pipeline systems, and the customers they serve”.
