Benefits of Satellite Based Pipeline Monitoring #3 No fly-zone monitoring
𝗠𝗼𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗼-𝗳𝗹𝘆 𝘇𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗹𝘂𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗶𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲𝘀: often, parts of a pipeline network run through no-fly zones such as urban areas and airports, causing that aerial inspection by helicopter is not possible. Satellite-based Pipeline Monitoring allows to monitor pipelines where aircrafts as well as drones are off-limits, or only allowed to fly very high.
𝗕𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗳𝗶𝘁𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗖𝗼𝗦𝗠𝗶𝗖-𝗘𝗬𝗘:
✅ frequent monitoring of no-fly zones is possible
✅ optical imagery is provided for no-fly zones (if regulation allows)
✅ on-ground follow-up is only needed when an activity is detected by satellite
The current example is set in Paris, above the Stade de France, where we survey the evolution of the constructions linked to the 2024 Olympic Games which are close to a pipeline we monitor. The city of Paris restricts small aircrafts and drones fly-overs under 3000m, which makes satellite-based monitoring the way-to-go!
