The aim of the project “Data Fusion & Smart Automatic Classification of Satellite Multisensor/Multiband SAR and Optical Data – MUSAR” is to exploit EO (Earth Observation) data in the research area related to Natural Hazards within the management and maintenance strategies of road infrastructures and road works of art (viaducts and underground works). The intention, pursuing the scientific objectives, is to provide new tools for the monitoring of the territory and infrastructures, with particular focus on road networks and road works that are developed in environments with high geological hazards, which can be implemented through a continuous multi-parametric monitoring of the territory.
The project is developed along two parallel lines of research that include the following activities and scientific objectives:
The project is developed by the proponents NHAZCA S.r.l. (Natural Hazards Control and Assessement) and CERI Research Center (Research Center for Prediction and Prevention of Geological Risks) of the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with the general objective of extending the exploitation of EO (Earth Observation) data in the research area related to natural hazards in the management and maintenance strategies of road infrastructures and road works of art (flyover and underground works).
