Hansje Brinker delivers a suite of operational monitoring and alert services. This service informs managers continually about stability, integrity, and shape changes in their infrastructure. In a single view, the manager can determine where inspection has the highest priority. This system offers extreme gains in efficiency and accuracy when added as a precursor to conventional, labor-intensive methods of inspection. The monitoring service offers a dashboard – a graphical representation as shown on these pages where every point that yields information has a color indicative of deformation. In its most basic form, areas of high rates of deformation are given the color red whereas relatively stable areas are shown in green. In other instances, layers can be added to highlight other aspects fo deformation such as accelerations or high deformation gradients.
Time series for every point
Time series are critical to understand trends in deformation and to decide whether changes in these trends require the assigning of the red or critical status to an object. Red means that newly acquired data diverge from the current trends and/or exceed certain pre-defined thresholds. In case there is a code red, the user can decide if anybody needs to be alerted and what needs to be the format and nature of this message. The role-based right administration is fully configurable.
The user gets a periodic report or access current deformation data through our web service. This can be deployed in a graphical environment. The admin can also assign user rights to other groups of users. The user can access at any time: deformation rates, gradients and history for any point. The underlying data can be downloaded for further processing in the workflow.
Configurable for every situation
Moreover, for each radar satellite mission, we can within the limits of the mission configure the data acquisition parameters such as images size, pixel size, wavelength and frequency of image acquisition. Effectively this means we will tune our system to best monitor the customers objects.
Data and functionality
Hansje Brinker tracks changes to infrastructure by analyzing large sets of satellite images over time and seeing state changes happening in the most recent ones. By tracking specific points of the object throughout the years, Hansje Brinker can determine deformation with millimeter accuracy. Applying this tool, the manager gets a complete view of current changes happening in the infrastructure.
The Monitoring product has a graphical user interface; every measurement point has a color representing its representative rate of deformation. The user can define which variables to show: typically the historic average annual deformation rate but also acceleration in deformation. Locations that have high deformation rates are shown as red while relatively stable locations are shown as green. By clicking on the point, the user can pull up the relevant time series over the whole preceding period as well and quantify the rate of change.
