UK remote sensing trial
Monday, 17 March 2014
The aim of the trial was the detection of leaks from underground water supply pipes located under a range of surfaces such as concrete, tarmac and vegetation. The day survey was carried out in September 2013, and the locations identified as possible leaks have been investigated on ground.
The night flight scheduled was unfortunately not undertaken on the same day due to power failure on the aircraft. Following months of delays resulting from the wet period at the beginning of the year and issues with the availability of thermal imaging assets, the night survey was carried out. Data from this flight is currently being processed in order to carry out the analysis required.
