InSAR Remote Sensing for Performance Monitoring of Transportation Infrastructure at the Network Level

This project proposes a network-level remote-sensing based inspection of a transportation corridor. The automated inspection process uses novel space-based radar technology to detect subsidence due to bridge settlement, rockslides/landslides and sinkholes in the corridor. Inspection is incorporated seamlessly in a geographic information system (GIS) based decision support system usable by state departments of transportation. This project pushes satellite-based inspection from the validation stage to the network implementation stage.
