SATCOM Playing An Important Role In Bridge Safety—ESA + University Of Nottingham Load Up Their Expertise

ESA is working with the UK’s University of Nottingham to monitor the movements of large structures as they happen using satellite navigation sensors. The team fixed highly sensitive satellite navigation receivers for detecting movements as small as 1 cm at key locations on the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland.
Measurements from these sensors were continuously transmitted in real time via satellite to a processing center at the university and made available via a web-based interface as part of GeoSHM, the project for Global Navigation Satellite System and Earth Observation for Structural Health Monitoring.

Putting it All Together – How UNOSAT Makes Sure Earthquake Relief and Early Recovery in Nepal can Count on Integrated Geo-Spatial Information

7 May 2015, Geneva, Switzerland – On 25 April, Nepal was hit be a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. As of 6 May, the number of casualties is reported at 7,675 while 16,392 have been injured. Immediately after the red alert by the Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System (GDACS), UNICEF and OCHA requested UNOSAT rapid mapping service. Priority areas of interest were identified and UNOSAT began the acquisition of satellite imagery through the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters (Space Charter) and from commercial vendors.
