Disasters do not just happen – they result from a chain of events that produce early warnings, which can remain unnoticed until it’s too late.
However, monitoring for such warning signs over large areas and in complex environments can be an overwhelming challenge for even the wealthiest of governments.
Datel has been working with different organizations, providing technological aids to better cope with such challenges.
SOME OF OUR REFERENCES:
• a space based measurement and monitoring service, SILLE – using satellite remote sensing data, we monitor slow displacements in the ground surface and in structures. Our system can generate early warnings well before a catastrophic landslide or dam/bridge collapse would occure.
More information about the new product can be found at https://www.sille.space
• flooding maps – ground surface elevation maps. Predicts the level of water rise and helps anticipate potential ooding.
• constellation GIS applications for area security, fleet control and solid waste management.
• sea Pollution Modeling – based on a sea model, it reveals the level of phosphates in the sea on the coast of Ida-Viru county.
• river-wastewater mixing zone – produces diagrams and maps of how wastewater from the shore or rivers mixes and disperses.
• dam Impacts Modeling – enables research on how land is flooded based on the swelling height behind a dam.
As satellite data services are getting steadily better and cheaper, these systems are no longer in the realm of Sci-Fi. However, not all of our solutions rely on them.
