Land and Assets Motion Monitoring
Detect early changes in land and assets movement to prevent failure risks to your critical infrastructure
Ensure Assets Safety and Reliability with Spottitt's Risk Monitoring and Assessment
Among other, infrastructure assets such as power grids, roads and railways, and pipelines are vulnerable to land-related risks such as landslides, ground movements, and land displacement. These geological events can originate from natural processes such as weathering, erosion, and tectonic activity, as well as human activities such as mining, construction, and deforestation.
They can cause significant damage to infrastructure assets, including ruptured or destroyed pipelines, roads, and power grids, leading to disruptions in supply and transportation and high economic costs.
Satellites help companies understand land movements, from 10 years back in the past
Conventional monitoring methods can be expensive, time-consuming, and limited by geospatial and temporal gaps. Remote sensing-based monitoring solutions overcome these limitations by providing continuous monitoring over large areas, regardless of weather or accessibility conditions.
Satellite-based monitoring of land and asset movements gives asset managers a clear indication of the asset health conditions, regardless if they are overhead, such as power lines, roads and railways, or underground, such as gas, water or oil pipelines. The data is available everywhere in the world, providing land movement data back 10 years in the past, at mm/year accuracy.
Spottitt’s ground movement and asset movement monitoring solutions utilise satellite imagery and advanced machine learning algorithms to monitor targeted areas for ground surface changes that may indicate movement activity and detect any potential land movement that can cause assets damage. By alerting operators in near real-time, we help them take appropriate action to prevent potential disasters.
Reduce Asset Faults, Maximise ROI
We provide comprehensive and frequent risk analysis using remote sensing data, which allows for detailed land- and asset movement mapping to reduce disaster risk.
Enable quick assessment of the event’s magnitude, damages, current ground situation, and its evolution, getting valuable insights to make informed decisions.

InSAR Analysis and Corner Reflector Experiments for Infrastructure Stability Monitoring Using Sentinel-1 Imagery
National Grid Energy Transmissions (NGET), which owns and maintains the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales, conducts invasive analysis annually to monitor the towers most at risk of movement. Moreover, the NGET inspection teams perform annual line walking activities and monthly substation inspections during which they visually assess the presence of asset motion. These interventions are crucial to avoid issues which may cause expensive assets replacements or reconstruction. It costs NGET over £6 million per year to monitor only 1% of their most at risk assets.
Spottitt is known for utilising satellite data to offer infrastructure owners valuable insights into the diverse external risks affecting their assets. But how precisely do we derive these insights from satellite imagery? The answer is – machine learning, and today we’re inviting you behind the curtains of our product to unveil the whole process.
Satellite-derived analytics is rapidly gaining ground as an essential tool for monitoring and managing risks in the power, utility, and infrastructure industries. It has been recognised as a key tool to improve safety, reliability, and optimal performance of critical assets by providing insights into their health, risks, and other key operational parameters.
