INSAR Structural Health Monitoring System (SHM)

Remotely assessing damage and durability

What do we assess with the new structural control and health monitoring solution?

DInSAR satellite technology measures small movements of the infrastructures with millimeter precision, without the need for ground instrumentation and being able to make historical studies of the last 25 years.  Our Building Health Indexes and forecasting algorithms easily identify anomalous changes over time on the assets and  trigger the alerts.






Our Works


There are thousands of small and medium-sized dams without an efficient deformation monitoring system. In addition, traditional methods for detecting deformations and millimeter movements in infrastructure are punctual, costly, require continuous human intervention and do not allow the reconstruction of historical movements of the infrastructure.

Detektia’s revolutionary solution provides a high density of information on the evolution of dam deformations never known before.


Urban tunnels can cause settlements on surface damaging buildings and structures. Integrating near-real-time satellite-based measurements on deformations into the control systems increases the available information for the correct control and monitoring of these large urban works.


Detektia solves the scarce available information on embankment stability. Conventional solutions monitoring embankment stability using in-situ instrumentation are costly and not scalable. Linear infrastructures might cross terrains with high geotechnical complexity and high rainfall seasonality, being necessary to perform constant monitoring of embankments over large areas. In these cases, efficient monitoring using only ground-based instrumentation becomes unfeasible. The integration of satellite technologies makes it possible to have greater information coverage and make decisions with higher resolution and quality information.


The foundations of the “port of the future” are being built with focus on digitalization and automation of highly specialized terminals. In this context, the assessment and management of vulnerability and risks of port infrastructure is a key aspect.

Detektia proposes a new style of monitoring port infrastructures by integrating satellite imagery and Artificial Intelligence into the port’s data managements systems.

    More information

    +-What is structural health monitoring?

    Structural health monitoring or SHM is an indicator to measure the deterioration or aging of infrastructures.

    Factors such as the passage of time, ground movements or natural phenomena can significantly affect the state of infrastructures.

    +-SHM systems, applications and objectives

    The first step in any health monitoring service is the collection of information on a periodic basis.

    Using collected information and applying specific procedures and algorithms, custom analysis and diagnostic results are obtained. These results allow early identification of possible risks, deterioration or any type of unusual behavior. Next step is to schedule some actions to guarantee the integrity of the structures.

    +-Advantages and importance of structural monitoring

    SHM must be part of the maintenance, supervision and prevention tasks of any infrastructure.

    Thanks to this early warnings system, if any anomalous behavior is detected will be possible to schedule the actions to solve the problem with enough time. In addition to ensuring the safety of infrastructures, one of the advantages of early detection are the reduction of repair and maintenance costs as well as the increase in the lifetime of the structures. This type of inspections and controls also allow us to comply with safety standards.

    +-Structure health monitoring techniques and methods

    There are basically two groups of monitoring systems or instrumentation: On the one hand, those that require on-site installation, for example, through the use of on-site sensors. On the other hand, those that allow work to be carried out remotely. Even without the need to visit the site.

    Detektia focuses on this second group of remote sensing systems. More specifically, in the use of InSAR technology that is fed by satellite images. Thanks to the use of this technology, the high availability of satellite images and proprietary artificial intelligence algorithms that extract vital information about the state of health of infrastructures, inspection can be carried out in near real time at a much lower cost than using other monitoring systems.

    New era of structural health monitoring in civil engineering

    The integration of the infrastructure early warning alarms into the client data control systems increases:

    Resilience through easier and more efficient preventive maintenance.

    Safety and reduction of incidents through the improvement of an early warning systems.

    Reducing running cost of infrastructure due to the reduction of in-situ control instrumentation.

    Control efficiency in all the phases of the asset life-cycle.
