Reference project: CRIS (Crack Inspection System)

CRIS radar system

Development of a radar system to detect cracks in hard rock mines in co-operation with MIRARCO (Mining Innovation, Rehabilitation and Applied Research Company, Canada).

Customer: ESA (European Space Agency)

Partly sponsored by ESA's Harsh Environment Initiative this project aimed at transferring the space technology developed during the GINGER project to an application on earth under difficult environmental conditions (dust, temperature, water spray).

The project resulted in a product prototype with very high resolution capabilities in a compact, rugged housing and 4 channel operation.
