Thanks to the technological maturity as well as to the wide availability of SAR data, Multi-temporal SAR Interferometry (MTInSAR) can be used to support systems devoted to environmental monitoring and risk management. In particular, high resolution X-band MTInSAR applications are also suitable for monitoring single man-made structures (buildings, bridges, railways and highways). The paper presents examples concerning the application of MTInSAR techniques and COSMO-SkyMed constellation for instability monitoring of infrastructures and, in particular, harbor docks and railways.
