Regular updates of satellite radar data and their integration into a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment significantly enhance the value of radar remote sensing for investigating and managing geohazards.

seismic faults

SqueeSAR™, DInSAR and RMT all provide surface displacement measurements at different rates, ranging from millimetre to centimetre, for mapping and monitoring moving areas. We provide both single phenomenon and wide area analyses. Unlike traditional ground based surveys, our measurements are remotely acquired and capable of covering vast areas over time. Such an approach becomes particularly advantageous when considering risk or inaccessible areas.
Surface displacement data from satellite provide a long-term solution to geo hazard monitoring.

Site characterization and inventory update

SqueeSAR™ data are used to identify, characterize and monitor geo hazards.

inventory update

An extensive archive of satellite imagery together with SqueeSAR™ allow the temporal evolution of ground motion to be reconstructed, providing valuable insight into understanding and forecasting future behavior.
Displacement maps are used to delineate boundaries and detect changes in the rate of displacement. They help verify and update existing inventories.

Emergency preparedness

Radar satellite data monitor the temporal evolution of potential hazards.

hazard identification
residual risk analysis

InSAR monitoring is used by civil and environmental protection agencies to identify areas at risk, aiding the establishment of natural disaster response plans. Ground motion data are used as input into geo-hazard models for the calculation of human risk exposure and the preparation of emergency procedures.
After a disaster, satellite monitoring is used to assess the residual risk in the area and to measure ground deformation resulting from the event.
