While one cannot prevent a natural disaster like an earthquake or a tsunami, loss of life can be minimised if the general population is warned in advance and can evacuate to safe ground or carry out pre-determined safety drills. We offer a range of solutions that can provide advance warnings for Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Avalanches.
Once a warning has been received, it is imperative to inform everyone concerned in the shortest possible time. Unlike conventional motor driven sirens, we offer advanced electronic sirens that can be remotely triggered and programmed to broadcast specific pre-recorded audio warning messages, or can, transmit in different warning tones.

Earthquake Advance Warning
Earthquakes of magnitude six or more on Richter's scale cause devastating disasters leading to death, causalities and significant loss of property. While it is not possible to predict in advance when and where the next earthquake will occur, it is now possible to provide early warning when an earthquake is approaching a location. These few seconds of early indication can be the difference between life and death.
The EarthquakeWarning System is based on state-of-the-art seismic detectors. The first 'Type P' pressure waves (which are not yet harmful) are detected by the system. An audio and visual alarm is triggered to prompt people to rush out of buildings to a safer place. This warning provides enough time for safe evacuation of buildings before the destructive "Type S" waves reach the area.
Tsunami Warning System
Sensor system for the detection of the earthquake and the tsunami wave. Data transfer from surface to the processing centres
Data processing and data management:
Data collection and processing at the processing centres. Derivation of alert messages including maps with evacuation routes
Alerting & Messaging:
Through the internet (LAN/WAN, VPN), digital or analog VHF/UHF radio, digital radio TDMA, GSM, GPRS, WiMax, and conventional PSTN lines or leased lines. To Electronic Sirens and Cellular phones, including evacuation routes.
Seismic Sensors are used for detection. The sensors' output is directly connected to Satellite, Electronic Sirens or can be transferred to the Control center.
(B) Satellite System:
For data transfer from Monitoring System to Control or Activation of individual sirens.
We can integrate our own sirens equipped with alternate batteries for the case of outage and solar cells hence do not require any external power supply.
Landslide & Avalanche Warning System
In the hilly terrains of Himalayan and sub-Himalayan regions, landslides have been a major cause of natural disasters that often strike life and property. Avalanche is river like speedy flow of snow or ice descending from the mountain tops. Avalanches are very damaging and cause huge loss to life and property.
This System can be installed asa warning system in hazardous areas to detect avalanches, warn approaching motorists, and alert maintenance personnel working in the area.
- Snowstorms dump thick snow packs over surface hoar (increased weight)
- Vehicles or skiers increase weight on pack
- Surface heating (sunshine, warm airmass) weakens snowpack
- Gravitational creep
- Shaking (seismic, explosives), but rarely low noise (shouts, aircraft overhead)
The avalanche warning system comprises a sensor assembly, a radio communication system and a controller.
Sensitive seismic sensors are deployed in the mountainous regions to continuously record ground vibrations. The seismic sensors are deployed in or near avalanche start zones and can detect ground vibrations produced by avalanches in a range of about 2 km2. The range of the system strongly depends on the size and type of avalanches.
The controller monitors sensor status, records sensor data, and activates warning systems via radio when the onset of an avalanche is detected.
The avalanche warning service gathers basic meteorological data as well as the snow depths for the assessment of the snow and avalanche situation in the mountains. The data is centrally administered and analysed. Diverse meteorological information, as well as,avalanche alert levels are given out for ski areas, to road operators at mountain passes as well as to the general public to prevent drastic avalanche accidents caused by themselves.
To fulfil the task and to correctly assess the actual snow and weather situation any time, a network of measurement stations are set up.
These automatic weather stations, collect and monitor meteorological parameters such as air temperature, humidity, precipitation, and snow depth or wind speed and wind direction. Diverse measurement data are recorded by the weather stations and transferred to a central data collection.
The main controller of the avalanche warning service combine the records of the meteorological measuring network with the information taken from snow profiles and reports to the general weather situation for the local situation.
Sensors and measuring devices:
Sensor for Measurement of Snow Depth
Sensor for Recording the Progress of Snowmelt (Run-off forecast)
The Snow Melt analyzer constitutes the ideal measuring solution for the analysis of snowmelt and for ascertaining the water run-off for flood forecasts or for water management. Measuring device which measures the snow water equivalent of the snow pack with a high level of precision and reliability.
Sensor for measuring the Temperature of the Snow Surface
The infrared sensor provides the exact and non-contact measurement of the snow surface temperature.
Sensor for generating a Snow Temperature Profile
The sensor carries out several independent temperature measurements in the snow pack with which an exact temperature profile can be generated.
Sensor with tilt switch enclosed in galvanized steel pipes
The pipes are hung on weighted wire ropes attached to a ¾-inch (19-mm) diameter cable, this is strung across the slide path. The cable is suspended roughly 8 feet (2.5 meters) above the ground and anchored to steel posts embedded in concrete.Sensor for recognizing the Sliding Movement of Snow
The sensor for measurement of sliding snow movement, whereby deductions can be derived regarding the association between the condition of the surface of the slope, the inclination of the slope and the snow packs.
Seismic Sensors - Geophones
Search & Rescue
These products are used by responders and rescue teams. They lead to the trapped victim quickly and efficiently, saving precious minutes. Their main function is detection & location of trapped people under rubble, after earthquakes, in collapsed mines and / or similar events.
Our devices can "hear" noises, cries, knocking, scratching and other nearly inaudible sounds made by victims as they struggle to be rescued. In addition, these systems enable to see persons under debris, using a special electronic camera inserted into crevices and /or holes to reach the location where they might be trapped.

Water Transportation During Disasters
Clean, fresh water is one of the most precious commodities during any disaster situation. A tense situation can easily go out of hand, if water is not transported and distributed quickly. The problem gets compounded when roads are damaged, pipelines broken, railway lines uprooted and airfields rendered unusable. At such times, traditional means of water distribution are also likely to be useless.
We offer a unique solution for transporting, storing and distributing water easily and in a flexible and adaptable manner.
