Here is a really interesting remote sensing application developed by Dutch company Orbital Eye: pipeline monitoring from space. The application is called PIMSyS, and highlights another unique application of SAR and InSAR remote sensing. The company has developed customised algorithms to measure ground subsidence to a high accuracy of millimetres. They use Sentinel-1A SAR data, with a repeat cycle of 12 days. With the recent launch of Sentinel-1B, it might be possible to observe pipeline disturbance incidents with higher temporal resolution as well.
