3302 - Satellite Radar Data Exploitation for IMINT and Security

Session Speakers
Session Description

Planetek Italia has designed a computer system using satellite SAR (Synthetic Aperture RADAR) data exploitation to support the targeting activities of the Italian Armed Forces. It provides significant improvement in the accurate recognition and classification of targets by using, among other things, accurate 3D coordinates. The system is based on M.App X, which uses a lightweight web client to provide intuitive tools for image processing and intelligence to defence users. Key elements of the system: using 3D to increase information accuracy; increasing military operations accuracy through extraction of Ground Control Points from satellite radar data which is archived in a global catalog; managing geoinformation assets through proper storage, updating and accessibility of the data; integrating different types of data through data fusion techniques; and automating the entire process for time and cost savings. The processing chain also provides a geoinformation service to detect and report earth's surface movements, aimed at recognizing underground activities such as the construction of tunnels or bunkers. This service is useful to control areas subject to landslides and subsidence, and the stability of infrastructures, such as buildings, roads and railways, and is available upon subscription to the Rheticus® cloud platform.
