The RESPEC instrumentation team uses Campbell Scientific equipment across a wide range of monitoring and control applications. We’ve installed weather stations on volcanoes, monitoring systems in caves, creep-closure detection in mines, custom extensometers and early-warning alarm systems near sinkholes, strain gages on steep granite faces, and tiltmeters in swamps where airboats provide the only access. We designed heater-control systems for long-term waste-disposal and high-temperature rock-melt experiments. If there isn’t a system available, we’ll create one.

Our team has SPRAT rope certifications, security clearances, professional engineering licenses, OSHA and MSHA 40-hour training certificates, and passports for access to the most remote and hard-to-reach locations on the planet. We create custom systems in the fields of geotechnical monitoring, mine services, environmental monitoring, agricultural monitoring, irrigation automation, and more. We can bring the data back in real time, for viewing or downloading, using our online data management, reporting, and visualization services. We not only install systems, our engineers, modelers, and GIS specialists can also analyze, evaluate, and interpret the data, providing professional, knowledgeable answers.
