Spottitt has been selected to work on the South Australia’s Department for Infrastructure and Transport

Spottitt is proud to be selected by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport – South Australia (DIT) to deliver a new solution to inspect and maintain roads at scale.

Across South Australia there re 23.000 km of roads of which 10.000 unsealed. Significant effort goes into inspecting this network to ensure that it’s safe and maintained at a good funcional level. Outside of the main cities, this requires visual inspection: people who regularly check for potholes and overall condition of the network. Therefore, the DIT was looking for new ways to carry out this process more efficiently and more sustainably.

Leveraging its expertise monitoring thousands of km of utility networks worldwide, Spottitt was happy to propose a proof of concept to help DIT maintain the road network condition and suggest when and were to intervene with in-field maintenance activities. Spottitt will leverage both optical and SAR satellite sensors to monitor the conditions of the road, as well as to map the extent and evolutions floods in near real-time.

With the delivery of this PoC, Spottitt intends to expand their disruptively priced, automated satellite derived monitoring solutions to the broader infrastructure sector, developing specific skills and algorithms for remote pavement condition monitoring.

Once again, Spottitt would like to thank all Gravity Challenge‘s partners and team, for being able to effectively support the growth of the earth observation industry worldwide.

Spottitt MF free beta program winners announcement!

Spottitt is happy to announce two winners of free Proof of Concepts (PoC). With the Spottitt MF beta program, Spottitt gave the chance to two utility network operators to get a free high-resolution analysis of 100 km of assets.

Spottitt Chosen for Newchip’s Seed-Stage Global Accelerator Program

Spottitt’s digital inspection solution for critical assets is among the top applicants selected for Newchip’s exclusive accelerator. The accelerator has helped over 1,500 founders from more than 50 countries and 250 cities raise over $450 million in funding with an estimated portfolio of over $9 billion.

Choosing the right SAR imagery provider is all about their quoted revisit frequency. Or is it?

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.

Monitoring Infrastructure through the Eyes of Satellites

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.
