Following the catastrophic failure of the Brumadinho tailings dam in Brazil, Craig Goff, our project director, considers the risks associated with these types of dam.
We have now chosen a new name for the system we are developing, it is called DAMSAT (DAm Monitoring with SATellites). DAMSAT will help to reduce the risk of tailings storage facilities and the consequent damages to population and ecosystems downstream.
DEVEX, the media platform for the global community, published an article talking about our tailings dams project. You can read it here: https://www.devex.com/news/sponsored/turning-uk-aid-into-sustainable-space-projects-93895
