Monitor infrastructure in your city, region, and county and detect changes in infrastructure integrity and stability in near-real-time with ICEYE SAR satellite data.
Infrastructure, such as buildings, dams and bridges, are subject to aging and ground subsidence caused by both natural (e.g. soil compaction) and anthropogenic factors (e.g. tunneling activities). To reduce the risk of breakdown, persistent infrastructure monitoring strategy and data-driven maintenance are required.
Frequent monitoring of urban areas allows to notice changes in infrastructure integrity and stability. SAR satellite data is the key to receiving up-to-date information about built infrastructure and construction sites activities, as well as map all the illegally-built or destructed facilities.
With ICEYE SAR satellite data, it is possible to define the instability risk for infrastructure, such as bridges, dams and buildings. SAR imagery is a reliable tool for detecting ground subsidence that may cause infrastructure collapses. Information derived from the frequently acquired SAR satellite data is especially valuable for risk management, since it enables to prevent or significantly reduce fatal consequences of infrastructure breakdown due to an early warning.
SAR satellite data is also useful after collapse events. Accurate estimations on destruction extent can be derived from the imagery, assisting rescue groups and government authorities in making safe and data-driven decisions while taking mitigation measures.
ICEYE continues to grow its current SAR satellite constellation capacity with the objective to provide daily interferometry and coherent change detection anywhere on Earth with a 24h ground track repeat. This breaks existing barriers in collecting SAR imagery stacks for InSAR analysis, bringing the collection time down with every new satellite in the ICEYE constellation. Since 2018, ICEYE has launched commercially available SAR satellites, and the company will continue to increase the size of the commercial constellation every year.
