C-ALS (Cavity Auto-scanning Laser System) is a unique specialist underground laser cavity monitoring system that enables mapping of previously inaccessible parts of mines, safely and quickly.

C-ALS grants access to concealed cavities.

C-ALS cavity monitoring system can be used in a wide range of applications, where an inaccessible void exists and accurate data is required to monitor excavations, assess risk or design solutions.

Once deployed, C-ALS gives more detailed, accurate data than alternative technologies, such as ground-penetrating radar, and is the only borehole-deployable laser solution on the market.

  • Plan new projects: Assess risk, design solutions based on accurate underground data, add C-ALS data to your existing maps and devise new programmes of work.
  • Transform productivity: With accurate maps of voids, you can design plans, which allow for efficient mining or construction projects.
  • Improve safety: Map inaccessible underground areas to ensure operations keep employees safe.

Applications where C-ALS provides data when manned entry may not be possible:

  • sub-surface voids and cavities
  • undercrofts
  • underground chambers and tanks
  • duct surveys
  • inaccessible roof spaces
  • subsidence investigations
  • collapsed mine workings
  • culverts
  • shafts and bunkers
  • underground caverns
  • industrial production facilities where access is limited or unsafe

C-ALS offers new capabilities, safety and cost benefits in a wide range of underground applications.
