In the mountains, precision positioning has become a major asset in the management of ski slopes but also in risk prevention. Thanks to its availability and its precision, the Orphéon network provides a solution of choice to these specific problems.
Ski slope managementSustainable development is now at the heart of farm management and requires more and more precision.
- For perfect snow cover management
- For monitoring areas in the massif
- For accurate mapping of all installations
- For prevention and safety programs
- For the management of networks traversing the domain
- For the preparation and implementation of development projects
machine guidanceThe preparation of the ski slopes requires attention and greater efficiency to which the Orphéon precision geopositioning associated with the guidance of grooming machines responds directly by providing comfort, safety and increased quality.
- Safety: Work in very poor visibility conditions (night, fog, snowfall)
- Better efficiency: reduction of fuel consumption, costs, carbon emissions.
- Greater quality: precise placement of the machines and regularity of the distribution of the snow cover with precise measurement.
GPRS mobile phone transmission
(3G modem for example) has now proven itself with a national territory coverage rate of almost 99%. It is gradually supplanting radio transmission thanks, in particular, to the additional services it authorizes:
- in addition to Orpheon RTK correction services
- remote assistance*
- the download*

Cartography surveys, GIS
Today, every drinking water, waste water and water pipe for snow cannons, as well as all cables and conduits are accurately surveyed, mapped and can be viewed at any time.
- More precise positioning of networks
- Reduced risk of damage
- Consultable and shared at all times
But also these cartographic surveys are used to prepare and carry out specific mountain developments.
Monitoring of structures and unstable areas
The stability of a slope or cliff can be affected by the following external factors:
- climatic phenomena: rain, snowmelt, cyclone, monsoon, freeze-thaw cycle, thermal gradient;
- hydrological phenomena: modification of superficial and deep flows, coastal erosion, erosion of the foot of the slope by the bed of a watercourse, rapid reduction in the level of a river at the foot of the slope, flooding, impoundment of a blocade ;
- phenomena that are sources of vibrations: earthquake, vibration linked to mining activity or the presence of infrastructure;
- anthropogenic actions: earthworks at the foot of the slope, overloading at the crest, insufficient control of water discharges and surface runoff. The presence of water, through the development of pore pressures in the unstable mass of soils or rocks, is often considered to be the preponderant triggering factor.
