Advanced technologies in the prevention of flood hazard

The aim of the SAFEDAM project is the creation of system for levees monitoring using a non-invasive, unmanned aerial platform, which scans from low-altitude, and optical, radar satellite  and aerial imagery. For this purpose innovative, photogrammetry and remote sensing technologies will be used. Endangered areas, detected preliminarily by images will be measured by non-invasive, flying measuring platform with centimeter accuracy using 3D measurement technique.

The methodology of system application, training program and proposals of procedures related to the management of flood risk will be also prepared. A comprehensive system will enable the collection, automatic data analysis and 3D visualization for hydrological services and crisis management professionals. The system will also allow society for geoparticipation in monitoring the levees. Its implementation will ensure effective management of flood risk. System will complement the already implemented projects of flood protection. The project  is financed by National Centre for Research and Development in Defense, Security Programme.

It is carried out by the consortium of Warsaw University of Technology Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography,  Institute of Meteorology and Water Management, MSP Marcin Szender, Astri Polska Sp. o.o., Central School of the State Fire Service in Częstochowa.
