Energy and utilities companies rely on their vast network of pipes, transmission lines, and other infrastructure to serve their customers. Protecting these assets is one of the main concerns of this industry. RapidEye's ability to deliver large-area coverage in five meter detail on a frequent revisit cycle provides numerous advantages to the Energy, Distribution, and Telecommunications markets.
RapidEye has created monitoring services to periodically image pipeline and transmission corridors and identify problems on the ground such as vegetation encroachment, nearby buildings, development of roads, leaks, or other problems around the pipeline. By having a tool designed by RapidEye to direct human monitoring on the ground, operators of oil and natural gas pipelines can save considerable human and financial resources.
In the communications industry, RapidEye provides land cover and land use classification data in combination with DEMs (digital elevation models) that enable telecommunication firms to establish or fine tune the wave propagation models that govern the placement of microwave relay antennas and ensure their networks are functioning at maximum efficiency.
