InSAR — Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar — is a remote sensing technique that allows detecting and measuring displacements of the land surface and structures.
InSAR main principle is a comparison of at least two satellite SAR images acquired over the same place at different times. An appropriate processing of such images allows us to detect and measure the deformations of land, structures and infrastructures.
deformations and velocities measured with mm precision
High density of points
thousands of measurements over a selected area of interest
over 20 years of data
from thousands of sq km to individual objects
compared with traditional topography or sensors
Complimentary to other sensors
An ideal tool for monitoring large, remote or urban areas, as well as individual objects such as open pits, oil and gas fields, tailing dams, dams, bridges, roads, pipelines, historical monuments, construction sites, etc.
It is also a strong complement to sensor and topographic data as it provides historical analysis, synoptic view and continuous measurements without any in situ presence.
1. GeoKinesia InSAR proprietary processing chain
One of the most advanced class of InSAR processing — Persistent Scatterer Interferometric Chain of Geomatics (PSIG), with a number of unique advantages, which make it an automatic, reliable and functionable InSAR processing chain.
We are data agnostic and work with high, medium and low-resolution satellite data from all major providers: Sentinel-1, TerraSAR-X, COSMO-SkyMed, Capella Space and the others.
2. Convenient web-based user interface
GeoKinesia developed a simple web-based interface, which allows to select an area of interest, period, types of analysis, and receive an InSAR report under the record short time. The service is designed for smaller accounts, who may need ad hoc InSAR analysis of a territory
We designed our service to serve partner companies, who aggregate data and provide service to the ultimate customers. We offer a high quality, efficient and reliable service, convenient web-based user interface, R&D and user specific solutions.
We are open to partnerships!
