Research Profile - Application of satellite technology in infrastructure monitoring

11 February 2021

Using radar monitoring is well established for investigating large earth movements and monitoring of city scale deformation, but there is limited understanding about the use of radar to monitor single infrastructure assets – which is becoming more applicable with improvements to the achievable resolution. This project...
