Last week, the Orbital Eye team met with our office neighbors – the Sensar team! As we are both providing monitoring services based on satellite data there was plenty of information and knowledge to exchange. Whereas Orbital Eye uses satellite data to detect activities at the earth’s surface, Sensar looks at movements of the earth’s surface by being able to detect millimeter-precise ground movements.
Information about ground movement is also of interest to pipeline operators – as ground movement can lead to for example increased stress on pipelines, pipeline exposure, or reduced depth-of-cover.
It was nice to catch up with the neighbors, both on the technology aspects during the technical sessions as well as on the social aspects during the drinks!
