Continuous satellite monitoring of wide areas and infrastructures is essential for engineering and construction companies. Both in planning and operational activities, satellite-based information allow faster, focused and effective decision-makings in order to plan daily tasks related to real conditions of buried pipelines, dams, buildings, underground cable networks, tunnels, motorways, and so forth.
Services in this field are:
Rheticus® Displacement is the service devoted to providing continuous monitoring of ground displacements and infrastructure stability in areas with active landslide or subsidence, easily spotting trends and potentially anticipating risky situations and harmful events.
Rheticus® Safeway highlights potential instability before it damages or shuts down your transportation infrastructure. See locations of concern in or near your network to better build, manage, and maintain safe and efficient structures.
Rheticus® Network Alert was awarded the World Smart City Award 2019 as the most revolutionary service enabling predictive maintenance of pipeline networks. The service currently monitors more than 40,000 km of sewer and water pipelines managed by utility companies. Is helps reducing the cost of system maintenance by monitoring potential breakdowns of the pipes caused by subsidence or human-induced ground instability.
Pinpointing the failure from Space: the sewerage network of Milan
Introduction Water can be a destructive force, washing away roadbeds and eroding riverbanks. Sometimes it works silently and invisibly, removing soil beneath parking lots and roads until they cave in, exposing sinkholes that shallow houses and cars. Subsidence, or when the ground begins to sink, is an indication of a problem. This does not need ... More
The Marine face of Rheticus: coastal water monitoring of the Epirus Region
Introduction Eutrophication of coastal areas is one of the most important and long lasting water quality problems for densely populated and industrialised countries. It can greatly affect coastal ecosystems. It is included among the Descriptors of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) needed for evaluating the Good Environment Status (GES) of marine areas. Furthermore, ... More
