DMC Constellation Strengthens Wide Area Monitoring Capabilities

Airbus Defence and Space is now offering new capabilities for wide area monitoring through the DMC Constellation, bringing increased resolution (12 to 24m) and extra spectral bands, including Red-Edge, Blue, Coastal Blue and Panchromatic. These new assets will boost key capabilities for agriculture, environmental monitoring and disaster management applications. Complementing existing DMC Constellation satellites, this expansion of imaging capability is possible through exclusive commercial imagery agreements for the Alsat-1B satellite mission with the Algerian Space Agency (ASAL), and for the KazSTSAT satellite mission with Ghalam LLP. This ensures partners leverage Airbus’ expertise in end-to-end mission operation services, while improving Airbus... (read more)

Monitoring Czech Floods with a UAV

Heavy rainfall in late May and early June 2013 caused severe floods in the Czech Republic. Geodis, a leading Czech company in the fields of geodesy, photogrammetry and remote sensing, used an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to monitor the impact of flooding by the River Vltava in the Czech capital of Prague as well as in the evacuated village of Hrensko on the River Elbe and the village of Kamenice on a tributary of the Elbe. Hřensko is located between the rocks and was only accessible by water or by air. Using the UAV made it possible to carry out... (read more)

DEME Partners with Airobot for UAV Monitoring

DEME, a leading Belgian dredging, hydraulic engineering and environmental solutions group, provides solutions for global challenges such as overpopulation in coastal areas, increasing seaborne trade and the rising global demand for energy and strategic resources. The company is now teaming up with Airobot to use UAVs for digital terrain modelling. DEME is considering UAVs to improve the safety of their crews on the construction sites, said Lorentz Lievens, head of the survey department. To create digital terrain models, the land surveyors must work amongst continuously operating bulldozers, excavators and dumper trucks. On several sites it is not possible at all... (read more)

New Data Processor Boosts Urban Monitoring

A new processing tool has been developed to bundle information contained in large amounts of satellite data, paving the way for the wealth of Copernicus Sentinel satellite data to be more easily incorporated into online environment-monitoring services. ESA’s online Urban Thematic Exploitation Platform (U-TEP) makes information from satellite data available for the non-expert user for urban environment monitoring. To do this, it processes hundreds of terabytes of data gathered by Earth-observing satellites, and translates them into easy-to-use products for scientists, urban planners and decision-makers. U-TEP reached a milestone recently with the integration of some 450,000 scenes from the US Landsat-8... (read more)

ComNav Wins Hydropower Station Landslide Monitoring Project

ComNav Technology has won the landslide monitoring project at Xiluodu Hydropower Station, which is China's second-largest and the world's third-largest hydropower station. This is the second time ComNav has won involvement in this project since it has already successfully fulfilled the first stage of the project. Xiluodu Hydropower Station is the key project of the west-east power transmission in China, located on Jinsha River, between Sichuan province and Yunnan province. The dam is 285.5 metres high, which is the largest dam in the world with regard to flood discharge. According to its 13.86 million KW gross installed capacity and 57.12... (read more)

Real-time Noise and Air Quality Monitoring

Sensaris is reporting the first trial for its environmental sensor series. Air pollution is one of the most important factors affecting the quality of life and the health of the increasingly urban population. Considered separately, air pollution policy is insufficient to reach climate targets and climate policy is not enough to reach air quality targets for example with respect to ozone, an air pollutant which will become more of a problem as the climate gets warmer.     Currently, the data of the different pollutants measured at the different stations in a city are typically aggregated to a single number,...
