Tetra Tech Canada Inc. (Tetra Tech) and Auracle Geospatial Science Inc. (Auracle) are pleased to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) specifically aimed at advancing collaborative efforts for the monitoring of critical infrastructure to identify potentially harmful geo-hazard events in advance of them occurring. Tetra Tech and Auracle have agreed to collaborate and identify prospective infrastructure, which requires satellite monitoring and will benefit from Auracle’s innovative technology and Tetra Tech’s expertise.
“Innovation is critical to the protection of the environment and the sustainability of critical infrastructure. Auracle has developed a customized satellite monitoring system that will help governments and the private sector stay ahead of risk by providing early detection of geo-hazards that threaten roadways, railways, pipelines, transmission lines and tailing ponds. Tetra Tech has specialized expertise in geotechnical engineering, soil structure interaction and geo-hazard assessments and mitigation. We are pleased to collaborate and coordinate our efforts to provide clear sustainable solutions that enhance public confidence and the ability to make critical safety decisions“, said Bernie Teufele, President, Tetra Tech Canada Inc.
“What makes our monitoring system unique is that we use satellite images to identify potential geo-hazards at, on and under dirt, sand, ice, vegetation, rock and water that can threaten the stability of assets. Our system detects even small ground movement and structural changes in any direction, day or night, rain or shine, wherever it occurs”, said David McLelland, Auracle CEO.
