Collecting data from your workstation

Remote sensing and airborne surveys add a different point of view to the existing information and a real-time data feed.


What we can investigate for you

Remote observation means providing our Clients with the best service ever, by integrating field investigations and analysis with the latest in relief and control methodologies, such as digital photogrammetry, lidar point clouds, infrared surveys, thermal infrared surveys, monitoring laser.

Airborne surveys

Airborne surveying offers many advantages for acquiring spatially-located data across large areas. Many square kilometers can be investigated in a single flight, even over rough or inaccessible terrain.

ROV & AUV surveys

Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) can carry instruments, take samples and conduct surveys, perform environmental monitoring and industrial inspections at inaccessible or dangerous locations.
ROVs & AUVs can conduct precise survey of areas where traditional bathymetric surveys would be less effective or too costly.

Satellite sensing

Satellite sensing has been recognized as a valuable tool for viewing, analysing, characterising, and making decisions about our environment. This technology offers many advantages for acquiring spatially-located data across regional areas.

Radar & lidar surveys

Radar and lidar technologies are accurate and effective methods for creating three-dimensional topographical airborne maps and highly accurate surveys of both surface terrain elements and man-made structures.

Monitoring systems

Technologies and expertise for special monitoring purposes, like continuous monitoring, including:

  • Inclinometers
  • Strain gauges
  • Slope indicators
  • Deformometers
  • Phonometers

Quick Fact

While you are sitting comfortably, we are very busy online monitoring 20 sites in Italy, with more than 200 different sensors operating from 2011, that is over 7,000,000 hours of data collected to date


State-of-the-art technologies and professionals

Remote technologies help us with the collection, analysis and data transfer control via web, to provide a real-time and accurate control of the monitored data.
