Transportation corridors do much more than move people and goods from point A to point B, they’re critical pathways for supply chains, facilitating billions of dollars in economic activity. These corridors can also be vulnerable to geohazards such as landslides which, when they occur, can have major impacts ranging from operational delays to potential fatalities.
3vG’s InSAR technology measures displacement over time of high-risk areas such as slopes located above critical railway lines or highways. Applying InSAR technology to monitor and measure these areas leads to an improved understanding of risk and allows geotechnical engineers to make informed decisions regarding susceptibility for a landslide. With its wide coverage over large geographic areas, InSAR excels at finding unknown geohazards in locations that area specialists were not aware of.
