Understand how ground movement is impacting your property
We are on a mission to help people and organisations understand the risk that might be threatening their properties and investments
Is your property at risk?
Using some of the world’s best commercial satellites, advanced processing techniques and machine learning, we derive dense virtual survey network of measurements on and around each property to help measure and visualise ground movement.
Leverage unparalleled spatial intelligence to understand how ground movement is impacting properties across Australia.
Go back in time to establish a credible baseline of movement prior to the start of construction or infrastructure projects.
Pinpoint exactly when your property might have first been impacted to help investigate what might have actually caused ground movement.
Timely measurements to help visualise movement timelines and provide temporal evidence to support your damage claim process.
Through the analysis of historical and current data, monitor change to identify trends, track change and predict future outcomes.

Frequently asked questions
How is the report different than a dilapidation report?
Our report looks back at ground measurements for up to three years and provides measurements at 11 or 12 intervals, filling the gap between pre and post dilapidation reports. With frequent revisits of the measurements, we can help identify exactly when the property was first impacted. The report complements the information found in the dilapidation report.
How long does it take to get my report?
We typically send the report 7-10 working days from the time it was first ordered.
How far back in time does the analysis go?
In general, the analysis goes back 30 to 36 months in time with new measurements made every 11 to 12 days.
How are measurements derived from the satellite imagery?
We generate measurements using an imagery processing technique called Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR). The satellite sends active radio signal to the target which then bounces back to the satellite. With new imagery being acquired at 11 or 12 intervals, it means we can analyse if the time it took for the wave to bounce back, if there is a difference in time between observations, a measurement of movement can be derived.
What are the plans for updates going forward?
Otus plans to update its analysis 3 times a year going forward and plans to provide coverage of Australia’s largest urban centres.
Will anyone need to come visit the property?
The information included in the report is mostly derived from the analysis of satellite imagery, which means that we do not need to visit the property to generate the report.
How is the report delivered?
The reports are sent by email in pdf format which can then be printed or kept on file for future reference.
Which satellites can be used to generate your data products?
We use data from an array of satellites and airborne platform to generate our data products. To generate ground measurements, we use Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite, to perform change detection with typically use high resolution optical imagery captured from airborne platforms.
