Transport enables communication, trade and other forms of exchange between people that in turn establishes civilisations and supports personal well-being as well as economic growth. To ensure transport operates appropriately, transport infrastructure (roads, railways, bridges, stations, ports, airports, etc.) requires a sophisticated management approach to mitigate against challenges such as structural degradation, environmental disasters and other human-related activities. Telespazio UK offers non-invasive solutions to support the maintenance of transport infrastructure to ensure the highest operational safety standards.
London Motion Map Program (MaP) is designed by Telespazio UK to provide monitoring of ground motion in London and beyond.
We use Persistent Scatterer InSAR (PSI) with high resolution satellite imagery to identify surface movement with millimetric precision. Through the technology, we are also able to understand how much each major underground infrastructure is affecting London’s ground surface, including movement interaction between different major underground infrastructures to clarify liabilities. As part of this work, Telespazio UK has developed a baseline survey to keep monitoring in the future quickly and effectively.
Addressing the Infrastructure Lifecyle
Planning & Design Phase
Risk planning management:
Full survey for identification of sensitive areas to movement
Prior movement detection to clarify liabilities in case of construction-induced movement
Measuring beyond the reach of in-situ instrumentation along track
Cost-effective survey just after construction in settling areas
Complementary and independent measurements
Operations & Maintenance
Long-term monitoring after in-situ instrumentation has been removed
Planning of surveying campaigns for maintenance
The baseline dataset analysis is already available as an off-the-shelf product with quick delivery providing high resolution surface motion for the London area from 2011-2015 from the COSMO-SkyMed satellite.
