The validation activity verified, through COSMO-SkyMed persistent scatterer interferometry approach, Persistent Scatterer Pairs (PSP) – IFSAR PSP-IFSAR analysis (August 2010- March 2012) that highlights relevant terrain displacement occurred
On-site inspections and precision geodetic measurements (in 2012) confirmed the development of landslide processes in several dozen identified areas within the investigated territory. Processes in several areas adjacent to the railway line, including the one near the Mamayka Landslide, may pose a threat to the railway infrastructure.
Project results were accepted by Final User, the North Caucasus Railway. The acquired information was used in the improvement of infrastructure protection facilities along the Tuapse – Adler line as part of the preparation for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games.
COSMO-SkyMed based displacement measurement values were qualitatively confirmed in 2012 by dedicated in-situ precision geodetic measurements of terrain displacement.
Methods for interferometric measurements interpretation have been consolidated.
Project results were awarded the Golden Metal of METROLEXPO 2012 exhibition for development of innovative methods of measurements for monitoring extended infrastructure facilities.
