    CAE MAGAZINE n.6 - English Version - November 2017


Back from the Meteorological Technology World Expo held in Amsterdam last October, that has been a unique opportunity to see and touch first-hand the latest measurement and analysis technologies, we go on talking about technology.

CAE is born by working in the field of hydrometeorology, but today it is crucial to find a solution to face different kinds of extreme events, which unfortunately are becoming more and more frequent every day, and our company has been ready for several years to meet this kind of needs.

We will report the words of Guido Bernardi, CAE Business Development Manager, who will explain the importance of multi-hazard systems, a single technology that helps tackle drought, forest fires, landslides and floods. All the damages caused by these phenomena can be better reduced if we receive real-time information from the territory. Being able to use one single field infrastructure, the same transmission tools and the same IT equipment to handle all these measurements, calculations and information simplifies pretty much our task.

This issue will also talk specifically about the technology used to reduce the risk of hydrogeological instability. In particular, we will report the intervention of Geologist Simone Colonnelli at RemTech: "The use of the Wireless Sensor Network aiming at Emergency Management and Risk Reduction in instability scenarios: application examples, strong points and future perspectives." To find out more about this topic, we will also report an application case that will tell us more about the use of the monitoring and alert system at Castelnuovo di Campli.

Finally, we will discuss the rigorous tests to which the 0-35 m LPR radar hydrometer has been subjected. Apart from having passed the various tests internally and obtained EC and FCC certifications, the product has also been subjected to further tests in order to certify its accuracy under real conditions and at the Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory of the University of Bologna.
