SatSense Ltd is a spin-out that provides precise and up-to-date deformation monitoring services using data from satellite radar.

SatSense uses its in house proprietary software to measure these changes to as little as 1 mm per year providing a vital service to end users in markets that include critical infrastructure companies, the insurance sector and the extractive industries.

The spin-out was developed by Professors Tim Wright and Andy Hooper from the University’s School of Earth and Environment.

The commercialisation team supported the academics to develop a focused proof of concept project to validate the technology and its benefits with market leaders across a range of sectors.

This drove product development through market testing and created customer networks with high profile companies. The team led activities to define a robust business case to optimise the technology before raising £750,000 in seed funding from investors to enable company start-up.

After the investment was secured, the commercialisation team supported the transfer of technology and commercial customer engagements to the company. SatSense is now building its capabilities and commercial products.
