About Us

Orbis is revolutionizing pipeline infrastructure monitoring.

Orbis’ patented sensors and IoT technologies detect leaks, monitor for pipe deterioration, measure water flow, and provide tampering alerts – all from outside the pipe.

Real-time monitoring capabilities help infrastructure owners and operators to make data-driven decisions, providing them with alerts and recommendations prior to the onset of critical events.

Our next-generation devices are non-invasive, simple and inexpensive to install, and offer true turn-key solutions to pipeline asset owners and facility managers.

Orbis Intelligent Systems - leading the field in live data acquisition and predictive assessment of pipeline infrastructure.
