It is in the interest of any gas company to maintain the value of its pipelines and to protect them against damage caused by third parties. As a result of global progress in high-resolution remote sensing and image-processing technology, it is now possible to design natural gas pipeline monitoring systems with space-borne sensors, and to enter into targeted negotiations with satellite operators concerning sensor application. A concept has been developed by a triumvirate consisting of Ruhrgas Aktiengesellschaft (the technological leader and user), the German Aerospace Center DLR (an applied research institute) and Definiens Imaging GmbH (a developer of image-processing software) for creating a satellite-borne pipeline monitoring system that combines high-resolution data – supplied by various sensors via remote sensing systems – with the context-oriented evaluation of these data using innovative image-processing techniques.
