TRE ALTAMIRA TRE ALT InSAR technology measures surface de- formation with mil- limetric precision using satellite radar imagery e regularly ac- quired and processed using proprietary SqueeSAR technology to produce a point cloud of measurements over the tunnel alignment and surrounding area. Each measurement point displays the evolution of motion over time, providing powerful information even on subtle ground sub- sidence, uplift and horizontal movement. ements also allow for verification of the stability of individual structures through time and can complement in situ measurements. Existing historical ar- chives provide a synopsis of ground stabil- ity during project planning, while regular updates are tailored to monitoring con- struction and infrastructure integrity.
