InSAR

InSAR is a technique that enables observations of ground motion from space with millimeter-scale precision and assessments of ground stability and risk. 

Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR) is the science of extracting the phase difference in the electromagnetic radar signals. This phase difference is directly related to the motion on the ground and due to the precise orbit of the SAR satellites enables continuous monitoring of ground displacements over several years. The large footprint of the SAR signal also enables the tracking of spatial variations in movement over kilometers. 

 

Since the end of last century, InSAR has grown from a niche to a mainstream earth observation tool with widespread applicability to diverse industries on all continents. The Use of InSAR is on a rapid increase along with elevated access to satellite data and stakeholder awareness of the technology. 

 

We behind Inio have been applying InSAR for decades and are striving for elevating the use of the technology today to help ensure not only the stability of the ground but the stability of industry operations and enhancing societal safety.
