COSMIC-EYE: Example of Orbital Eye’s Pipeline Monitoring Solution Using Multiple Satellite Sensors

Orbital Eye’s satellite-based monitoring solution CoSMiC-EYE uses imagery from multiple satellite sensors to detect activities in the pipeline Right-of-Way.

✔︎ Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) from Sentinel-1
✔︎ Multispectral data from Sentinel-2
✔︎ High-resolution optical imagery from commercial satellites

CoSMiC-EYE automatically processes all collected satellite data, and its algorithms detect activities that could potentially damage pipelines. By using data from multiple satellite sensors, it is ensured that no activity in the pipeline Right-of-Way is missed by the system.

In today’s video, an example can be seen of a groundwork activity that was flagged by the automatic analysis of SAR-, multispectral-, and high-res optical satellite data. This illustrates that such an activity can be picked up by the analysis of each individual satellite source – but also that by combining data from different satellite sources those kinds of activities will not be missed by the system!
