AMH Philippines and Synspective sign MoU to use SAR data for geohazard mitigation projects
AMH Philippines, Inc. and Synspective have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to use SAR technology as part of an integrated and comprehensive approach to mitigate geohazards for infrastructure in the Philippines. The partnership includes the Land Displacement Monitoring (LDM) service, fully developed and automated by Synspective, and is empowered with AMH’s years of local experience in various projects in transportation infrastructure, energy, property, and mining sectors.
AMH Philippines, Inc. is actively involved in various hazard mitigation and risk reduction projects in the Philippines. The Philippine archipelago, located in the Ring of Fire region and along a typhoon belt in the Pacific, is susceptible to various natural hazards such as earthquakes and rainfall-induced landslides, liquefaction, subsidence, storm surges and flooding.
Synspective is both a SAR satellite manufacturer/operator and a geospatial SaaS provider in Japan. LDM is one such service. Empowered by data science and machine learning, LDM aims to provide insightful analysis through ground deformation patterns on its dashboard. Synspective will promote LDM and its data to address various geohazards in the country and expand its global presence.
Two parties will attempt to mutually leverage the strengths in their respective fields and deliver comprehensive end-to-end geohazard consultation to support local communities that are prone to frequent natural disasters.
AMH President, Jose Carlo Eric Santos: "This collaboration with Synspective is very much aligned with AMH’s policy of providing our clients with the best and most responsive engineering solutions. It is our hope that the utilization of SAR technology will contribute to our efforts of helping our clients, and the whole country, build safer and more resilient infrastructure and communities."
Founder and CEO of Synspective, Dr Motoyuki Arai: “It is a great honor to collaborate with AMH Philippines, Inc. to kick off our new exciting year. This partnership makes sense not only for Synspective’s plan for global expansion of operation but also from the context of leveraging AMH’s proven track record of reputable capability through thousands of local engineering consultations. We anticipate the essence of LDM will be of great value in building safer communities across the Philippines.”
