iDMS intelligent dam monitoring

Reduce the risk of catastrophic failure and drive large-scale operational efficiencies through remote sensing and data analytics.

Binnies intelligent dam monitoring system, iDMS, empowers operators to dynamically manage the integrity and safety of their entire asset base: remotely, at scale and cost-effectively. It tracks unusual changes in ground motion, vegetation and moisture using satellite and multiple data feeds combined with advanced artificial intelligence. Retrospective and current analysis build a unique picture over time. Access our interactive platform for frequent, accurate insights and alerts on anomalous activity, without the need for site inspections.
