Aerospace construction monitoring is a system for observing the process of building construction using aerospace imaging technologies, such as aerial photography, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and laser scanning, at defined intervals.
Construction monitoring with remote sensing data is a system for collecting up-to-date and reliable information on the construction progress, allowing for analysis and assessment of the overall situation on the construction site.
Aerospace construction monitoring is carried out for:
- Making timely and informed engineering and managerial decisions;
- Obtaining information on the site's condition as close to real-time as possible, enabling analysis of the construction progress without physically being on-site;
- Creating an archive of imagery captured during the construction process, which can be used to resolve disputes;
- Verifying databases generated from documents (e.g., actual volumes of earthworks, actual dates of work completion, adherence to construction specifications, etc.);
During aerospace construction monitoring, the following tasks are addressed:
During the design phase:
- Qualitative and quantitative assessment of the initial state and dynamics of objects and territories for potential construction;
- Functional zoning of the potential construction site and adjacent areas;
- Preparation of topographic plans and specialized maps;
- Creation of 3D terrain models;
- Generation of reference plans based on up-to-date orthophoto maps;

During the construction phase:
- Monitoring the implementation of the project throughout the entire life cycle of the construction site, following the construction schedule specified in the project documentation;
- Identifying deviations of the actual state from the project documentation;
- Monitoring the legitimate use of subsoil during construction;
- Assessing the impact of construction on the adjacent areas and compliance with environmental regulations;
- Monitoring compliance with construction deadlines.

During the operation phase:
- Environmental monitoring and monitoring of compliance with land legislation;
- Qualitative and quantitative assessment of ongoing negative processes and phenomena, as well as identifying trends in their development;
- Using radar interferometry data to identify areas with geodynamic changes.
- Comparison of orthophoto maps from different dates;
- Comparison of point clouds from different dates.
- Monitoring the efficiency of resource utilization and early detection of lagging areas in the project;
- Real-time data acquisition on the project's status, reducing the time required for project reporting;
- Reduced time for obtaining information on the volumes of completed work;
- Minimization of the risk of producing inaccurate documentation due to the use of outdated data from the site.

- Comparison of actual completion times of work stages with the work schedule;
- Verification of the presence of any construction forces at a specific moment in time and determination of their quantity;
- Presence of specific construction materials on the site and their approximate quantity;
- Control of compliance with various technological stages;
- Preparation of various reports for clients;
- Monitoring the work of subcontractors.
Advantages of using remote sensing data:
Advantages of satellite monitoring of construction progress and construction monitoring using UAVs and drones:
- Visual representation of work progress;
- With a sufficient archive of data, it is possible to "go back" in time and indisputably prove or disprove certain facts;
- Remote access to information about the construction site, especially useful for remote or difficult-to-reach areas;
- Satellite imagery is significantly cheaper than UAV flights, especially for studying geographically distant areas;
- Use of UAVs or drones is indispensable when studying an area with prolonged dense cloud cover.
