Company Profile

Survey Lab was established in 2008 as a spin-off of Sapienza University of Rome. Survey Lab is currently focused on the development of geomatic monitoring systems by means of advanced surveying and mapping technologies, including remote sensing technology. It develops applications in many fields of civil and environmental engineering, with a focus on methods for monitoring natural hazards effects on the land and on the builtup environment. The expertise of the Company in the techniques for monitoring land, structure and infrastructure derives from the strict connection with researchers of the Area of Geomatics in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering. Its mission is to develop and distribute innovative monitoring systems based on advanced surveying and mapping technologies with a specific focus on remote sensing data. Survey Lab aims to stimulate and spread the use of satellite technology within the community of civil and environmental engineering as means for improving structural investigations and fostering best-practice for prevention. It also promotes training courses, seminars and workshops, tailored to target audience and stakeholder’s specific interests.

    Survey Lab’s services includes:

    Geomatic monitoring of structure, infrastructure and cultural heritage - Survey Lab provides services to monitor historical-architectural, infrastructure, and facilities, based on the use of data acquired through SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) satellite methodology and its integration with ground-based measurements. The acquired data constitutes the basis for the development of numerical models that describe the behaviour of the investigated structures.

    Land Monitoring - Survey Lab designs and implements systems for land monitoring at small and large scale through the integration of geomatics ground-based sensors and observation systems operating on aerial and satellite platforms.

    Database for infrastructure management - Survey Lab takes a census of the infrastructure networks by means of GNSS survey methods, and constructs/populates georeferenced dynamic database usable and accessible in the most common GIS platforms, with precision techniques for real-time positioning and instrumentation for the acquisition of the ancillary parameters, based on the user requirements.

    High precision surveying - Survey Lab designs, manufactures and surveys high-precision topographic networks through high-performance instrumentation to support large scale scientific installations and infrastructure that need to be placed into a reference frame with the greatest precision.

    Three-dimensional modelling - Survey Lab provides a reverse engineering service using high-precision measurement methods via laser scanner and digital photogrammetry and takes advantage of its three-dimensional modelling experts.

    The company’s core service is I.MODI, an operational prevention and investigation tool, aimed at monitoring medium-long term buildings and infrastructures. This product was born during the incubation in the ESA-BIC Lazio from 2013 to 2015, but it was developed thanks the H2020 SME Instrument Phase II funding obtained from 2016 to 2018. Now it is in the commercialization phase.

    I.MODI (Implemented MOnitoring system for structural DIsplacement) is a value added service, co-funded by the European programme H2020, that integrates Earth Observation technologies, ground based data and ICT to develop services for monitoring the stability of buildings in large urban areas and for controlling critical civil infrastructures. The aim of I.MODI project is the development of a service that fully employs Earth Observation (EO) data into standard procedures, devoted to structural damage assessment, thus contributing to implement mitigation and prevention actions for potential failures.
