The SENSOR and SATELLITE Asset Alert and Management Systems (SSAAMS) is an Innovate UK funded 2 years project started in November 2017. SSAAMS will use geo-analytical techniques to develop online, map-based ASSET MANAGEMENT decision support tools derived from sensor data, calibrated with satellite data and other data sets to monitor and predict areas of high risk where disruption to transport, energy and urban systems might occur. Infrastructure operators will be able to remotely and accurately monitor and assess the factors that affect the condition and long-term stability and resilience of their assets.
A monitoring and alerting system will identify potential and actual ‘failure’ events so asset managers can take proactive action to mitigate a potential event, or to react quickly and precisely to detected failures therefore making the infrastructure assets more resilient and minimise costly future interventions as well as improving the daily lives of citizens.
The project team is a consortium of organisations that have experience in all the areas needed to fulfil the project: LEAD – Amey (infrastructure company), Rezatec (SME satellite data analysts), Senceive (sensor provider) and University of Birmingham (railway, climate change).
