[12.09.2012] A Research Work Has Been Accomplished

A project «Development of program methodical complex for high-accuracy estimation of offsets of man-made objects on the basis of the method of satellite radar data interferometric processing». The project is being carried out on the priority issue «Space and telecommunications» under the government contract № 07.514.12.4027 of October 17, 2011.

The developed method of high-accuracy estimation of offsets of man-made objects makes it possible to obtain offset values of a denser network of stable reflecting objects than the standard method of interferometry of stable reflectors do by using Earth surface micro-terrain elements. This feature allows one to apply the technique in large natural landscapes. Experimental sample of the program methodical complex of high-accuracy estimation of offsets of man-made objects offers the possibility of prompt processing of vast volumes of benchmark radar data due to distributed computing. The program for results presentation is an effective tool for the analysis of the results of high-accuracy estimation of offsets of man-made objects and Earth surface micro-terrain elements. 

The developed program methodical complex includes a new technique of processing of obtained velocities of offsets and time series of offsets of stable reflecting objects which makes it possible to select groups of unidirectionally moving stable reflecting objects indicating deformations of the regions. The technique allows to use data of more radar satellites received during more satellite’s recirculations of the orbit.

The method of high-accuracy estimation of offsets of man-made objects allows one to reach sub-centimeter accuracy of definition of stable reflecting objects offsets which is in line with the global scientific-technical level. The experimental sample of the program complex is more efficient than the existing commercial software packages due to the advantages of high-performance computer systems.

A patent application on the performed work to the Federal institute of industrial property has been completed; the computer program has been registered.

The two-year total federal financing is 11,7 million Rubles. Having been made available to the Russian Federal Agency for Science and Innovations, the final report has been approved.

[12.08.2012] Performance of the Second Working Step of the Research and Development Work

The second working step of the research and development work «Creation of the software and technical tools complex for microseismic monitoring of continental and offshore hydrocarbon fields development on the basis of areal data collection system and supercomputer methods of information processing».
