Rheticus® processes Sentinel-1 satellite radar data to provide information about ground instability with millimeter accuracy. Data processing in the cloud is considered the State of the Art in "Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar". Analysis via the Smart-M.App “Network Alert” then enables vector data (e.g. pipelines) to be intersected with the ground displacement information and thus to obtain indicators for preventing leakages in the defective segments. For the first time, ground lifting and lowering movements can be continuously monitored automatically from the space with a turnkey and cost-effective solution.
