    ___ When an incident occurs and people are trapped under ground, it is a well-accepted ---- fact that “time is of the essence”. Therefore it is essential a Trapped Miner detection system is available within 24 hours of any site at risk. South East Asia and Australia have suitable systems on site. It is essential that this network is expanded to cover the main mining regions or people’s lives may well be at risk.

Our Story

Mr. Philip Shaw has spent the last 35 years in the business of developing electronic equipment and the software to run it.  Since 1985, he has been developing the hardware and software for micro-seismic systems for mine and incursion monitoring.  His first full scale system (SP1) was successfully implemented at a working coal mine in the UK in 1996.  Since that time, a lot has happened, please see our timeline for the exciting developments to date.
