Let It Snow! Satelytics Sees Through Slush
‘Tis the season to brush up on Satelytics’ capabilities.
- Problem: Remote sensing inhibitors.
- Solution: Algorithms trained in varying environments.
- Benefit: Year-round monitoring.
Winter is here, as are the predictions of snowfall here in the US. In areas such as the basins of North Dakota, where snow cover often lasts months at a time, the ability to monitor asset territories and infrastructure in winter conditions is important — not to mention a challenge for many.
Satelytics’ algorithms utilize the power of the sun reflecting off the earth’s surface to detect and quantify phenomena of interest, uncovering threats to our customers’ business operations. For example, Satelytics provides our oil & gas customers year-round advanced leak detection for hydrocarbons, brine, and methane, in addition to encroachment and land movement detection.
Every algorithm our science professionals build is ground-truthed for accuracy. Understanding how solar radiation reflects off specific surfaces — “albedo” in remote sensing terms — plays an important role in creating accurate algorithms. This includes accounting for snow cover, where Satelytics’ scientists bundled up to gather the necessary samples to perfect capabilities for substances of interest.
Our AI-powered machine learning algorithms compare data against applicable models and what they’ve learned from past projects. Winter monitoring projects benefit from previous work done over similar environments, such as those experienced in our Williston Basin and Alaska North Slope work. The same concept applies to other environments — deserts, forests, jungles, water, and more.
Satelytics solves industry’s most pressing challenges, meaning we’re not bothered by a bit of snow. What conditions are challenging your organization? Let’s build a solution that works for you, anytime, anywhere.
