The MUSE (MUltisensor based SErvices) project intends to create a service prototype for the assessment of multi-hazard risk in urban environments, a risk mainly induced by geo-dynamic, atmospheric and environmental problems capable of causing damage to the territory and citizens. .

There are many dimensions of risk, which must be taken on by Operators and the Public Administration: the first concerns the impact of hydrogeological instability (problems connected to the subsoil) of the cities, the second is linked to pollution from multiple sources (both natural and anthropogenic), the third mainly concerns anthropic activities linked both to the modification of the urban landscape (illicit contributions etc.), and to pollution and the release of toxic substances into the air and onto the soil.

The MUSE project intends to integrate all these risk domains and provide a complete platform of services that can be offered to its interlocutors (Infrastructure Operators, Municipalities and other stakeholders who have the task of protecting the territory, environment and citizens).

The MUSE Grouping Offer will take place in different Areas:

Geophysical and Geodynamic Area, with geophysical analysis of the soil (both in urban and peri- and extra-urban environments).
Atmospheric Area, with analysis of the atmosphere close to the ground, with all its natural components and related to anthropogenic activities such as polluting gases etc.
Environmental Area, relating to changes in the urban fabric with solid components (i.e. illegal transfers) and liquid components (i.e. spills etc.).
The three areas identified above will be manned through state-of-the-art and innovative technologies, some of which are being developed and prototyped within the project.

The idea behind the program is to acquire data of different nature, independent of each other and characterized by different spatial and spectral resolutions, capable of jointly providing an accurate and reliable picture of the territory.

We will therefore have monitoring based on different Components:

Remote Service Components related to the analysis of data from the various satellite constellations, in particular in the area of ​​interferometric services (SAR). The analysis of these data will make it possible to acquire low resolution data on the ground but with a high ability to verify its vertical movement, particularly useful in urban environments;

Proximal Service Components related to the analysis of data from instrumentation mounted on aircraft or UAVs. These data may concern both the state of the territory (multispectral data analysis), and chemical analysis data of the air, through a new class of measurement systems based on spectral analysis of the collected gases;

Ground Service Components related to the analysis of data from instrumentation (fixed or mobile) on the ground. These data acquired through the use of microwave antennas (range of hundreds of MHz) will be able to best represent the situation of the subsoil close to the road level, for the analysis of problems in underground services and to highlight the presence of cavities ( sinkholes).
