Innovative technologies provide the key to making pipeline operations more efficient. Thanks to recent progress in satellite-based remote sensing and image processing, it is now possible to design pipeline monitoring systems with remote sensors and context-oriented image processing software, as has been demonstrated in particular by the three-year ESA funded market development activity “PIPEMON – Geo-information services for pipeline operators: ground motion monitoring and route planning”. Business partners involved in the Project are currently undertaking pre-commercial trials with market players and potential customers, to better introduce and demonstrate Earth Observation (EO) data and services to the pipeline industry.
