The STICK - Low cost GPS monitoring for a multitude of applications

Web picture.png

The STICK is a Low cost GNSS device that delivers high value data to monitor the smallest of movement of critical infrastructure, including land and buildings. Detecting millimtere level movements, STICK is used to monitor the stability of:

  • earthworks, such as embankments, cuttings, flood defences, etc

  • above and below ground construction sites

  • the built environment, such as buildings, bridges, pylons, supporting structures and wind turbines

  • temporary structures, such as stands, seating, lighting, flood defences

  • the natural environment, such as landslides, earthquakes, tremors, coastal condition/erosion, ice caps


  • Latest space based satellite navigation technologies (GNSS)

  • 9 degrees of freedom inertial measurement unit

  • Less than 1/10th cost of traditional GNSS solutions

  • High accuracy millimetre level movement detection

  • 1D, 2D, 3D and 4D absolute movement and rate-of-change/velocity

  • All sensors tied in to a common three dimensional reference frame providing local, regional and national analysis

  • Easy to install, minimal maintenance

  • Low powered, renewable energy charging

  • Real-time and time-aggregated movement reporting

  • Cloud based-service, accessible from anywhere on multiple web-enabled platforms

  • Alarming, alerting and reporting via text, email or online

  • API push/pull options for third party systems

  • Multiple constellation GNSS

  • Multiple wireless communication options (3G/4G, wifi, BT, LoRa)

  • Fully user configurable operational, analysis, reporting and alerting
