TRE Altamira is at Eurock 2022
to present InSAR for Civil Infrastructure and Mining

Ground instabilities pose a challenge to rock engineers and geotechnical practitioners in various engineering applications. Whether they affect open pit walls, tailings storage facilities, tunneling projects in urban areas, or linear infrastructures, the early identification of unstable areas is key to ensure the continuity and safety of operations, as well as timely inspections and maintenance.

In fact, frequent monitoring of ground stability is essential to assure the timely detection of precursors to failures.

Bridge monitoring with InSAR. The average time series of displacement shows subsidence and uplift between 2012 and 2017. Original Data provided by JAXA.
Slope monitoring with InSAR. Graphs show cumulative displacement and inverse velocity. Contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data 2016.

Satellite InSAR technology provides a clear understanding of the ground behavior when used in conjunction with complementary conventional ground-based surveying instrumentation.

Thanks to their sensitivity to subtle displacement, wide-coverage, and remote-sensing capabilities, TRE Altamira’s monitoring services, powered by InSAR, are helping engineers and asset owners in industries such as Mining, Infrastructure, and Oil & Gas in the early identification of ground risk.


What are the benefits of InSAR?

Spatially dense results with millimetric precision

spatially dense and precise resultsInSAR provides ground displacement measurements with millimetric precision, sensitive to movement as slow as 1 mm/year.

Non-invasive and scalable technique

non-invasive scalabilityInSAR is a remote sensing technology and provides accurate displacement measurements over individual assets as well as entire countries/continents.

Weekly ground displacement updates

Weekly updatesThanks to a new generation of satellites, it is possible to receive weekly updates on ground displacement.

Risk assessment

Risk assessmentThe timeliness and accuracy of results aids geotechnical engineers in risk assessment and supports decision-making processes.
