ADPM Drones flies over the Tevere to monitor river and shore conditions
The mission is part of the Pomerium project, which aims to provide innovative and sustainable solutions for monitoring infrastructure and other assets

One of the most significant projects ADPM Drones is working on is Pomerium, an initiative coordinated by e-Geos, a company formed by Telespazio and the Italian Space Agency, co-funded by ESA and ASI within the joint Space for L’ART (L’Aquila, Rome, Turin) plan, which aims to develop an advanced monitoring system based on the use of integrated methodologies and technologies. The latest stage of Pomerium brought drones and technologies from ADPM Drones to fly over the Tevere river, with the aim of monitoring its condition at different points.

After flying over the Pyramid Cestia, the Aurelian Walls and the Colosseum, the flights over central Italy’s longest waterway (which stretches between Emilia-Romagna, Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio) brings to a close a long work dedicated to some of Rome’s most popular monuments. The goal of the project is to analyze air quality and collect data to detect any changes in the area over time.

Explaining the purposes and modalities of the flights over the Tiber is Luca Brizzi, Executive President ADPM Drones: “We carried out HD filming for photogrammetry purposes. More specifically, the operations are aimed at verifying the conditions of the river and the bank. In addition, 360-degree camera flights were performed to make a three-dimensional reconstruction of the analyzed environment.”
