Satellite-based monitoring of energy grids

Page last modified
April 11 2024

With the CoSMiC-EYE technology, energy grid operators can keep a continuous eye on their energy corridors. By using radar- and optical satellites, the energy corridor is monitored multiple times per week, and all detected activities, that could potentially be a threat to the energy grid, are presented in the CoSMiC-EYE activities.

Pros & Limitations
Sustainable - zero emission and no risk on flight incidents
Reliable - radar satellites are weather- and daylight-independent
Priced competitively through a smart combination of open and commercial data
Easily scalable - technology can be applied worldwide for large energy grids
Frequent monitoring - satellites scan the energy corridor multiple times per week
CoSMiC-EYE replaces the widely adopted and accepted aerial monitoring methods
The provision of data from optical satellites is weather dependent, thus not always available
