Significantly decrease costs on right of way monitoring and improve integrity and threat management processes for oil pipelines with frequent and reliable radar satellite data.
Persistent monitoring of oil pipelines and their construction sites with radar satellites guarantees provision of accurate information on construction activities and vegetation incursion. SAR interferometry (InSAR) ensures delivery of the most recent information on the land displacement, detecting down to millimetric ground deformation.
There are three key pipeline integrity problems satellite-based pipeline monitoring can tackle:
ICEYE SAR satellite data is used to automatically detect changes in the defined pipeline corridor, and then analyzed by machine learning to classify those changes. Combined with ICEYE analyst validation, you receive actionable information for ROW monitoring. Reporting is generated within hours and delivered to the customer typically integrated into customer system.
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.
