Energy & Critical Infrastructures

Space technologies can ensure the security of energy and critical infrastructure through the many related services involving positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) systems, geoinformation and satellite communications.

PNT services, for example, are widely used for timing and synchronization of critical infrastructure, such as telecommunications and power networks. These systems are in turn interconnected to telecommunications satellites, both commercial and government, from which they derive connectivity services. 

In such an interconnected and complex ecosystem, it is clear that it is necessary to avoid failures and blackouts that can create serious economic damage, as well as serious risks to the safety and security of the public.

Moreover, high reliable and scalable satellite connectivity in remote sites, such as offshore platforms, is essential to ensure communication, as well as business continuity and assets monitoring, supporting sustainable and low-impact business development.

Geoinformation services are also crucial for monitoring territories affected by energy and critical infrastructure.

Business continuity

Extraction of underground resources, for example, cause deformation of the terrain over the site and satellite can detect the deformation over time to avoid damages to infrastructures and buildings and to control the extraction and injection process.

Mining sites are dynamic and highly challenging environments requiring great attention to avoid management failures affecting safety of staff, environmental impact of the mining activities and production down-time.

Also, buildings and other critical infrastructures may suffer of deformations due to subsidence, seismic activities and structural failure.

Long pipeline are difficult to be monitored by standard systems: they would require  cameras and sensors systems, not feasible and too costly in installation and maintenance. 

SAR Change Detection analysis supports the identification of areas more subjected to changes and activities, guiding on site surveys by drone or teams on field.

Telespazio offers a wide range of Satellite Communications services, as well as, through e-GEOS and GAF, innovative Geoinformation digital platforms to monitor assets, infrastructure, territorial and smart cities and to help all stakeholders to achieve their sustainability goals.
