Infrastructure Monitoring Service (IMS)

Schnabel’s Innovative Asset Management Technology


When data is critical to your business, your analytics platform needs to be secure, controllable, scalable, and reliable. From compliance and security to management and monitoring, the IMS system offers a robust suite of built-in capabilities to support the needs of your business. It also provides the ability to integrate with sensors and systems you’ve already put into place to reduce implementation time and cost as well as ongoing operational efficiencies.

Scale across the Enterprise For powerful analytics that drive bottom-line impact across the organization, you need a solution everyone can use. One that works with all the data you have. It needs to deliver the flexibility people want while giving you the control, security, and compliance IT requires. From deployment to decisions, the IMS Cloud Platform powers analytics.

Having actionable data at hand before going to the field can be critical. With Artificial Intelligence designed by Ovela, we bring you the ability to see the deformation of any site on the planet from your smartphone. Validated by our clients’ surveyors alongside the European Space Agency, Ovela gives you the ability to leverage the six billion euro annual investment of the Copernicus space program to your own work.

InSAR is now affordable, and easily accessible with the archive data set provided by the 430 mile high orbiting Sentinel 1 twins. In a matter of days you can view hundreds of satellite overflights regardless of clouds or darkness.

IMS is the fusion of data from the orbit to beneath the ground. Clients get a holistic view of their infrastructure to millimeter accuracy complimenting physically installed instruments with Schnabel’s experience.

IMS Cloud Platform

Our platform is compatible with a variety of manufactured sensors and supports a wide range of industry standard types — including spatial, environmental, structural, geotechnical, and process. Integration of multiple sensor types under one platform has historically been an expensive problem for asset owners. These custom system integrations are expensive to own and operate, due to the lack of standardization. Providing owners a platform choice that integrates across sensor technologies and manufacturers empowers them to migrate legacy systems, consolidate instrumentation across departments, and implement new technologies without the burden and cost of implementing redundant systems.
