Company Profile

NHAZCA (Natural HAZards Control and Assessment), Startup Company of "Sapienza" University of Rome, is a service and consultancy company, leader in the analysis and monitoring for the management and mitigation of risks of natural hazards and large infrastructures.

As a result of a constant effort in the innovation and optimization of the newest remote sensing technologies, NHAZCA provides to its customers cutting-edge solutions for the management, control and monitoring of natural and man-induced hazards, supporting the construction and administration of large infrastructures and natural resources exploitation projects, with a particular attention for a sustainable and responsible interaction between human activities and the natural environment.

NHAZCA is an international leader in monitoring services through innovative technologies such as the Satellite (A-DInSAR) and Terrestrial (TInSAR) SAR Interferometry. Given the specific properties of radar sensors, such solutions allow the measurement and control of surface displacements of the ground and structures with millimeter accuracy.

NHAZCA develops also the PhotoMonitoring technology to monitor with extreme precision changes and surface movements of structures and terrain using images acquired from different platforms (terrestrial, aerial, satellite) and sensors (optical, multispectral, infrared, radar).

NHAZCA is constantly focused on Research and Development activities to internally design and develop the hardware and software tools to provide its tailored solutions to partners and clients.

NHAZCA supports key international asset managers in the following markets:

  • hydrogeological and seismic risk management,
  • civil structures and large infrastructures,
  • hydroelectric energy production,
  • oil & gas,
  • mining,
  • land management,
  • conservation of architectural and monumental heritage.

With an experience of more than 10 years of monitoring services and over 300.000 hours of continuous analyses, NHAZCA daily provides the finest personalized solutions for more than 300 customers from 40 different countries worldwide, representing a reliable partner able to provide high professional standards.

    NHAZCA provides monitoring, assessment and forecasting services related to geology, geomorphology, hydrogeology, and geotechnical and environmental engineering through the integration of the newest generation of remote sensing technologies. Moreover, the highly qualified technical and scientific staff is constantly focused on internal design, development and implementation of the necessary hardware and software tools to execute the projects.

    NHAZCA makes use of the most advanced technologies, such as:

    • Satellite SAR Interferometry for historical and current ground deformation analyses of both small and large areas.
    • Terrestrial SAR Interferometry for real-time slopes and infrastructures monitoring.
    • PhotoMonitoring services to detect infinitesimal changes and displacement of objects, structures, landslides, glaciers or coastal lines, by use of images from satellites, aerial surveys or ground cameras and adopting different algorithms such as Change Detection, 3D Photogrammetry and Digital Image Correlation.

    NHAZCA designs, develops, and realizes:

    • TRIVIA - Terrestrial Radar Interferometry VIsualization and Analysis software: the result of more than 10 years long experience in Terrestrial SAR Interferometry. The software can perform advanced analyses of Terrestrial SAR images, processing data from several radar manufacturers like IDS GeoRadar, MetaSensing and Echoes, providing useful information in real-time to support engineering projects. By using TRIVIA, NHAZCA is able to support clients with excellent real-time data processing capabilities.
    • IRIS - PhotoMonitoring software: the unique PhotoMonitoring software for automatic and real-time analyses for image change detection and relative displacement measurement via multi-platform data sources (ground, aerial, drones, satellite), in a user-friendly interface.
    • InSARPECT APP: an Android/iOS app that combines and superimposes satellite InSAR data with your collected field data, simply through your mobile devices. It allows the field teams to collect records including geo-referred information such as text, photos, videos, vocal notes, and more.
    • NHAZCA Visualization Tool: our web-based protected platform with a user-friendly interface for the distribution of different kinds of results from different types of monitoring systems, which allows to explore the interferometric products and analyze each measurement point, or observing the time series of displacement detected with PhotoMonitoring.

    NHAZCA organizes professional training courses in collaboration with several professional orders and national and international associations. In the last 7 years, more than 600 participants, from over 40 different countries and 60 partner companies, attended the training courses organized by NHAZCA, providing very high satisfaction evaluations.

    Our most relevant international events include:

    • International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring: after more than seven years from the first edition (2014), the increasing interest for the International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring confirms its leading role as an excellence that is today a global reference course in this sector, as a result of the combination between the Academic world, the industry and the experts' sectors.
