The Conference program will include Invited Lectures and Keynote talks by well-known international and national experts, presentations by researchers of universities, research centers and technical companies.
LUNITEK will exhibit at the IWSS2023 and we’ll be delighted to welcome you at our stand providing information on earthquake monitoring systems and our products. For more information about the meeting, please visit IWSS – IWSS2023 (google.com) .
Yeti is a compact and lightweight measurement sensor based on GNSS technology ideal for low budget projects.
It was designed for monitoring and early-warning of critical areas in the presence of hydrogeological risk.
Landslides, subsidence, volcanos, slope instability are some of the most common applications of the system but not only. All infrastructures such as civil buildings, water pipelines, energy plants, railways, bridges, dams, quarries, viaducts can be monitored using Yeti.
EGU, the European Geosciences Union, is Europe’s premier geosciences union, dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. It was established in September 2002 as a merger of the European Geophysical Society (EGS) and the European Union of Geosciences (EUG), and has headquarters in Munich, Germany.
The EGU General Assembly 2023 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

LACSC – Latin American and Caribbean Seismological Commission IV ASSEMBLY
Lunitek with its regional partner Geosis Ingenieria from Bogotá – Colombia, participated in LACSC, the Latin American and Caribbean Seismological Commission IV ASSEMBLY event, in the city of Quito – Ecuador. This important meeting was attended by different public entities and private companies that carry out seismic monitoring activities with national, regional and local networks, volcanological monitoring networks, as well as researchers and experts in seismology from different Latin American countries.
Our stand had a good participation of the different attendees during the 3 days of the event and was attended by Paloma Sandoval (Commercial Manager) and Carlos Lozano (Geosis Engineering Director). Our instruments caught the attention of the attending professionals, highlighting the presentation of the Hermes equipment, Triton Seismographs with different bandwidths, Sentinel GEO and Accelerographs for recording strong ground motion.
What was most appreciated about our products was their versatility, the variety of sensors and digitizers, their design, easy portability, power backup and adaptability in communications. The affordable costs, robustness in their construction and ease of use in permanent networks as well as in temporary monitoring of seismic noise, the possibility of making arrangements for monitoring networks with different equipment configurations, were other aspects that were highlighted during the presentation of the different equipment.
On July 20, 2022 we participate in the COMPENG 2022, a workshop organized by the National Institute of Optics (CNR-INO), the Institute of Complex Systems (CNR-ISC), the University of Florence and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (Florence) in cooperation with the IEEE Italy Section.
COMPENG is a series of international workshops founded in 2010 aimed at providing a forum for experts and professionals working on the latest developments in complexity science and its application in an engineering perspective.
Our participation in the workshop is about modern solutions for Remote SHM
Circo Massimo monitoring during the Maneskin concert
The Circo Massimo is the largest building for spectacle of antiquity and one of the largest of all time (600 m long by 140 m wide) and is linked by legend to the very origins of Rome: here, in fact, the Rape of the Sabine Women took place.
On occasion of the Maneskin concert on 9 July 2022, Lunitek installed, on behalf of the Polytechnic of Turin and Fine Arts, 7 seismometers to record and assess the vibrations caused by the concert and their impact on the remains of the Circus.
Structural Health Monitoring System Installed in Two Skyscrapers in Medellín – Colombia
Through our Colombian dealer we carried out SHM systems installed in two Skyscrapers in Medellín, Colombia. In total 6 Triton accelerographs were installed together with accessory devices that allow the equipment to connect to the network, and therefore the visualization and the remote acquisition of recorded data. The accelerographs were installed on the basement or lower level, on the 16th and on the 34th floor of the Towers.
Structural Health Monitoring System Installed in Wind Turbine Wind Farm of Daunia
Wind Turbines are one of the cleanest and most attractive options for renewable energy. Evolution in this sector has lead to larger support structures and rotor blades. Furthermore, the turbines are exposed to environmental conditions that are not always favorable, aging of the supports, or even worse to defects in the construction process. The purpose of monitoring this turbine is to investigate cracking damage which was spotted on the support base, which is made of reinforced concrete, to estimate the progressions of the crack and the stability of the wind tower. The monitoring system is composed of: – 1 Poseidon Light (legacy product now ATLAS) – 1 Trixial accelerometer true FBA 0.5g – 1 Poseidon (legacy product now TRITON) – 1 4G router
SHM Systems installed in the Sulmona and the Foligno Hospitals
Structures are subjected to progressive deterioration due to various external factors such as aging, stress, environmental condition, accidents and to internal factors such as the lack of quality controls or defects in the construction process. The health of structures is of primary interest because it represents a potentially high risk for life and property. The Structural Health Monitoring of the two Hospitals is part of the OSS Lunitek monitoring systems which started in 1996 with winning a contract with Civil Defence. The wired SHM system of the Sulmona Hospital was installed in the 2009 and it’s running 24/7. The system of the Foligno Hospital covers one area of the building and it comprises of a wireless Poseidon system (our legacy product, now called TRITON). This solution saves on installation costs and it is not invasive, as cable deployment in an operational hospital it is not easy! In the case of strong earthquake and loss of mains power, the system is backed up by batteries and keeps on recording.
