|Tele-Rilevamento Europa is the first commercial spin-off company of the Politecnico of Milano, the only world-wide exclusive licensee of the Permanent Scatterers Technique, a unique tool that can measure the deformation of the surface of the Earth to an accuracy of millimetres.
TRE activity is the natural industrial outlet of a long course of study and research in the field of radar remote sensing.
TRE biggest asset is a team of engineers with a vast technical expertise in radar remote sensing. The constant link with the University provides continuous updates and improvements of the algorithms.
TRE invests significant resources in research and development, performing algorithms, creating new products and services, and reducing the cost and the time needed to access to the requested information.
The PS technique goes over the limits of radar satellite applications because it allows locating ground radar benchmarks (PS) which it is possible to estimate for:
The PS are a sort of â€œnatural geodesic networkâ€ for the analysis of superficial deformation of the earth. It is a monitoring system that does not know equals for its accuracy, for the spatial density of its points of measure and for its economical competitiveness. It is particularly useful for the study of phenomena such as: urban subsidence and deformation along seismical faults, in areas with an extension of hundreds or thousands of squared kilometres.
