Paper Abstract

At present, gas pipeline networks in Europe are routinely monitored by vehicle and air patrols to protect them against damage by soil movement and third part interference. Because of the expenses, pipeline operators are investigating the possibilities to replace these traditional monitoring methods by remote sensing from space. A preliminary analysis shows that considerable savings can be achieved by deploying a user network of ground stations to receive the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data of the ENVISAT, RADARSAT-2, ALOS and TerraSAR satellites.
