The sigris project: A remote sensing system for seismic risk management


SIGRIS (SIstema di osservazione spaziale per la Gestione del RIschio Sismico) is a pilot project aiming to the realization of a system, based on satellite remote sensing data, for the seismic risk management. The project is funded by the Italian Space Agency (ASI). ASI is deeply interested on the development of new applications, using satellite data, dedicated to the monitoring and management of the natural hazards. SIGRIS is focused on providing the information services for mapping, monitoring, forecasting and awareness of seismic risk. The Earth Observation products are generated by using GPS data, optical and SAR Synthetic Aperture Radar) images. This project deals with the data exploitation of the new Italian Earth Observation ission: COSMO-SkyMed, a constellation of four satellites quipped with an X-band high resolution SAR. © 2008 IEEE.
