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.);
Aerospace monitoring of construction progress captures all stages of building construction, from site preparation to the development of adjacent areas after completion. These images provide detailed insights into the construction progress at each stage. The imagery also allows assessing the construction activity at the time of capture, identifying periods of pause or resumption of construction at specific times, and verifying whether the actual construction pace matches the planned pace.

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.

Implementation Mechanism:

  • 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.


Goals and Objectives:

  • Verification of land boundaries;
  • Overall control of engineering surveys (including compliance with SP 47.13330.2016 "Engineering Surveys for Construction");
  • Monitoring of site preparation works: deforestation, demolition of buildings, relocation of utilities, organization of temporary infrastructure (temporary roads, material storage areas, etc.);
  • 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.
Modern aerial survey technologies (optical and laser scanning) significantly simplify and reduce the cost of construction monitoring activities, providing both quantitative analysis of changes on the ground and visual documentation of those changes.

The frequency of successful new space imagery depends primarily on weather conditions over the area of interest, the geographic location of the area of interest, its area and configuration.
The minimum order for new ultra-high resolution space imagery according to suppliers' terms and conditions is from 100 square kilometers.
The list of activities for monitoring construction progress includes:
  • Clearing the forest;
  • Construction of a mineralized strip;
  • Technical reclamation;
  • Excavation (trenches, pits);
  • Deviations from the project decisions, including overestimation of work volumes;
  • Filling and compacting of the platform, roads;
  • Monitoring the condition of roads;
  • Concrete works;
  • Driving metal piles;
  • Installation of blocks, precast concrete panels;
  • Installation of metal building structures, floor slabs;
  • Cleaning up construction waste;
  • And others.
The additional activities for monitoring construction progress are:
  1. Conducting engineering and geodetic surveys of new construction sites.
  2. Ensuring the safe operation of enterprises, buildings, and structures, as well as pipeline transportation and the operation of fields (oil and gas).
  3. Executing reconstruction, major repairs, and restoration of objects, including buildings, structures, and oil and gas transportation facilities.
Construction monitoring refers to the process of controlling and documenting the progress of a construction project. It involves regular inspections and evaluations of work in progress to ensure that it is being performed in accordance with plans and specifications, and that it complies with building codes, safety requirements, and engineering standards. The purpose of construction monitoring is to ensure that the project is completed on time, within budget, and to the desired quality standards. In the process of designing, constructing buildings and structures, maintaining monitoring and control often involves tasks that lack the competence of builders and designers. Therefore, scientific and technical support (STS) is required to ensure the quality of all stages of design and construction of buildings and structures In case of identification of potentially hazardous areas or factors threatening safety, a survey is carried out, and a set of measures is selected to eliminate the hazardous situation and the causes of its occurrence.
The additional scenarios for conducting monitoring are as follows:
  • During the construction or reconstruction of unique structures and objects of the third geotechnical category, as well as new or insufficiently studied construction structures and their foundations.
  • During the construction or reconstruction of objects in complex engineering-geological conditions.
  • For existing objects of the second and third geotechnical categories, located within the influence zone of new construction in densely built urban areas, as well as in other cases specified in the technical task.
During the monitoring process, it is essential to determine settlements, tilts, and horizontal displacements of the under-construction or reconstructed building and the surrounding structures located within the construction influence zone. The condition of these structures should be assessed, and the performance of measuring systems should be evaluated.
Geotechnical monitoring of buildings and structures is a comprehensive study and analysis of technogenic, ground and natural conditions arising during construction or reconstruction of the facility. Timely application of geotechnical monitoring prevents and minimizes the risks of deformation and destruction of both the object under study and adjacent buildings. The peculiarities of the soil base, hydrological conditions, structural solutions of the object, including the excavation fence, the presence of engineering communications and new construction in the immediate vicinity are studied. The necessity of geotechnical monitoring of structures is regulated by Federal Law 384-FZ "Technical Regulations on the Safety of Buildings and Structures".

Geodetic monitoring is an integral part of geotechnical monitoring. It is the recording of deviations of the controlled parameters of the investigated elements of structures and soil mass with their subsequent comparison with the calculated values.
