Created in 2001, OSMOS is specialized in structural monitoring of buildings and infrastructures. Its leading-edge technology, based on fiber optics, allows a close monitoring of the structural health of all types of infrastructure.
By optimizing operating conditions, OSMOS extends the service life of structures, consequently preventing major renovations with a high economic and environmental impact.
LIMITING THE CONSUMPTION OF MATERIALS AND ENERGY
Raw material extraction and transformation, manufacturing of intermediary materials, transport, construction, maintenance, recycling… Every stage of a building or infrastructure life cycle consumes resources. To preserve these resources implies protecting our heritage.
Extending the service life of constructions and optimizing the conditions of their transformation is now possible thanks to appropriate technical surveillance which enables risks and deformations to be identified as quickly as possible, and structures to be monitored during major renovation works. The benefit is threefold: it allows to anticipate harmful incidents, limit the consumption of materials and extend the service life of structures.
OSMOS consequently offers its clients a decision-making assistance tool thanks to which they can better manage operational risks, prioritize maintenance needs and minimize their costs.
UNIQUE SURVEILLANCE USING FIBER OPTIC TECHNOLOGY
The “Optical Strand”, a product of 15 years of Research and Development and protected by more than 50 global patents, enables the continuous monitoring of structures’ behavior.
Overload, wear and tear at sensitive spots, climate variations, works nearby… Optical Strands detect all types of constraints affecting a structure with unequaled precision. The system constitutes a veritable health log capable of being integrated into a structure at any moment, including from the design and cosntruction stage.
Entirely manufactured in France, OSMOS systems can be applied in 25 activity sectors, such as bridge constructions, housing developments, historical monuments, industrial equipment or theme parks.
A UNIQUE SERVICE FOR A GLOBAL MARKET
Anticipating degradation risks, extending the service life of structures and accompanying them in their transformation – all of these aspects represent a formidable source of savings for asset managers at a global level.
Already present in more than 20 countries, OSMOS intends to fully exploit this potential by offering its clients a comprehensive monitoring service.
Thanks to OSMOS technology, clients can make substantial maintenance savings, whilst guaranteeing people’s safety and freeing up budgetary margin without having to invest.
