SAFETY aims at providing Civil Protection Authorities (CPA) with the capability of periodically evaluating and assessing the potential impact of geohazards on urban areas. The project improves the effort in detecting and mapping geohazards, assessing their activity and evaluating their impact on built-up areas and infrastructure networks.
This objective will be based on three pillars:
- the performances of the Sentinel-1 sensor;
- the development of a free tool that exploits it to periodically detect and monitor ground deformations; and
- the exploitation of the tools and methods developed in the FP7 LAMPRE project to assess geohazard susceptibility and its impact on urban structures and infrastructures.
