TPI Tuesday – Introducing the benefits of satellite-based pipeline monitoring

When pipeline operators want to keep a close eye on all activities taking place in the pipeline corridor, satellite-based monitoring is the answer! Pipeline networks are typically spread over vast areas which makes them notoriously difficult to monitor efficiently. Traditional monitoring often relies on observations from a car, plane, or helicopter based on which the […]

TPI Tuesday – Monitoring of agricultural areas

In today’s TPI Tuesday, we highlight the capabilities of CoSMiC-EYE when it comes to monitoring agricultural areas. Pipelines often run through agricultural areas which are always changing. Harvesting, plowing, or mowing happens on a daily bases and doesn’t cause any risks. CoSMiC-EYE is equipped to distinguish the common from the potentially hazardous activities. The example […]

TPI Tuesday – Construction Activity Detected

Today, Orbital Eye takes you on a summer trip to a location where a pipeline next to some beautiful Trinidadian cliffs is monitored, to get you in the holiday mood! 🏖☀️ In the optical satellite imagery, you can clearly see a structure appearing that was detected by CoSMiC-EYE. The on-site visit of this TPI might […]

TPI Tuesday – Construction Works Detected

Today’s TPI Tuesday shows another example of one of the activities that is detected often by CoSMiC-EYE: construction works. It also shows again how the CoSMiC-EYE solution typically works: ✓ A high-resolution recent basemap is available for the entire pipeline network ✓ Through an analysis of weather-independent Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data, a change is […]

TPI Tuesday – Agricultural activity detected

In today’s TPI Tuesday, we see an agricultural activity that was detected by the CoSMiC-EYE system. Routine agricultural activities like planting, plowing, and harvesting, don’t pose a threat to the pipeline integrity, and hence, even though they can be detected by the system, they are not reported to our customers. In this case, though, the […]

Orbital Eye in Germany!

The past two days Arnaud van den Berg and Ana Stavreva visited Germany to visit the E-world energy & water, the Impact Festival organized by E.ON (thanks OLiver Motz for the invitation!), and to meet with our German partners 🇩🇪. It was very interesting to see all the other innovative solutions that are developed within […]

TPI Tuesday – Roadworks Detected

In this TPI Tuesday, we see the detection of roadworks by radar. The radar image shown at the right displays a change in amplitude in an agricultural area. The resulting filtered change map as seen on the left indicates potential danger. To classify whether the threat is real, Orbital Eye tries to acquire high-resolution optical […]

Happy Birthday to ourselves!

Today, Orbital Eye celebrates its 10-year anniversary. We are very proud to have reached this milestone together with everybody who contributed to this – partners, suppliers, customers, and most importantly, our employees! In those 10 years, we have grown from a small ‘project group’ to a professional organization that is now serving customers all around […]

TPI Tuesday – Orbital Eye 10 years!

Tomorrow, Orbital Eye celebrates its 10th anniversary! To get in the mood already, this TPI Tuesday is constructed by satellite images taken throughout those 10 years that together spell out the event we will be celebrating. Do you recognize any of the buildings that can be seen in these images? Stay tuned for more festive […]
