Fragile Srl can provide remotely sensed displacement information relevant to risk-based asset evaluation and insurance.
Data of past and present displacement can be used to assess if a given asset is subjected to geological risks (landslides, subsidence, sinkholes) and hence his corresponding economic value.
Many natural deformation processes are not visible to the human eye but still capable to produce repeated damages to man-made structures. They include slow-moving landslides and land subsidence. Houses built on old deep seated landslide deposits, or in an area affected by high differential deformation due to subsidence, may develop cracks and crevices.
Insurance, re-insurance companies, and real estate agencies may benefit from historical InSAR deformation data if engineering projects, historical buildings or houses need to be insured/evaluated.
Despite of the well-known assets exposition to the flood and seismic risks, with related insurance policies, the loss of value induced by deformation phenomena like landslides, subsidence and sinkholes is not yet codified.
Fragile Srl collaborates actively with Area Proxima Srl to offer an integrated service that assigns geological risk-based asset evaluation and insurance to the real estate market.
An historical InSAR analysis can help to understand if specific houses were affected by deformation in the past and if damages might cause additional costs in the future.
Engineering projects, like linear infrastructures, tunnels, that are build in landslide-prone terrain may cross already deforming areas or might cause the reactivation of dormant landslides.
InSAR data can help the project managers or insurance companies to attribute the correct geological risk and future costs due to these problems.
