We worked with British Geological Survey to design the Slope ALARMS acoustic landslide monitoring system and this enabled us to carry out field trials that proved the approach can be used to provide an early warning of slope failure.

Further developments working with Data Electronics Ltd led to creation of the Community Slope SAFE system.

The knowhow gained through this extensive programme of research and development has been licensed to international leading geotechnical instrumentation manufacturer RST Instruments Ltd. RST have used this knowledge to produce the world’s first commercial acoustic emission geotechnical sensor called Geo Acoustic Aware (GAA).
