So you have an application or use case that lends itself to the use of SAR satellite imagery, for example flood monitoring, disaster response, illegal fishing, land and asset motion etc. You already know that the resolution and/or revisit frequency of open source SAR imagery from the likes of Sentinel-1, PALSAR, RADARSAT-1 etc. won’t meet your needs so it is time to review the offering of the growing number of providers of commercial SAR imagery.
Is it possible to inspect and protect critical infrastructure from the sky with the help of satellites? Let’s discuss this and see what are the use cases and benefits of infrastructure sector monitoring by using satellites.
Earth Observation satellites are used by utilities all over the world to increase their risk awareness and digitalise their operations. But what kind of data can satellites provide, and what are the most common use cases?
The Earth Observation industry is healthy and growing Worldwide. As the new EUSPA* report shows, in 2021, the global turnover across EO data and value-added services amounts to €2.8 bn. Over half of these global revenues (i.e. 55%) are generated by the top five segments
This is a question that many customers ask us. And, like all good questions, there’s no simple answer to that.
Many power, gas and water utilities are reviewing their asset monitoring strategy in order to move from calendar-based inspections and O&M actions to risk and condition-based ones. In this journey, the digitalization of asset data is key.
There is a seismic shift in methane gas leak monitoring requirements coming for the EU energy sector, but will satellites miss out on playing their part because of a difference in units?
Historically methane gas has been considered a safety issue, methane gas leaks were bad because of the risk of explosion or asphyxiation. But, in this brave new world of climate change and net zero commitments, methane gas leak levels set the pace for warming in the near term.
