The Utilis service is provided periodically, on a monthly, quarterly or half-year basis;

At the beginning of each period, Utilis presents a graphic and/or tabular Leakage Report containing the location of suspected leaks. The information is displayed on top Google Maps or Google Satellite layer.

Utilis periodic Leakage Reports benefits include: early leaks detection and repairs verification, that significantly contribute to NRW reduction. Repetitive update of the leakage reports improve accuracy of findings, thus enabling composition of more efficient operational work-plans.

About Us

Around the world, 46 billion liters of treated water are lost every day.

Leak detection technologies have not changed much in 80 years. They continue to be costly and somewhat ineffective as companies around the world struggle to find leaks, save scarce resources and money. Despite the waste of water, utilities many times can’t make widespread use of current leak detection technologies as they are not economically viable. Meet Utilis.

Using technology that is used to look for water on other planets, Utilis analyzes satellite imagery to detect leaks and non-revenue-water. The result? Images that cover 3.500 square kilometers at once. The leaks are displayed in user friendly GIS reports including street locations, with great accuracy, saving significant labor associated with finding leaks with current methods. Utilis uses aerial imaging.

Taken from satellite mounted sensors, the raw imagery is overlaid on GIS systems and then processed by Utilis’ unique algorithms. The Utilis’ algorithm detects treated water, by looking for a particular spectral "signature" typical to drinking water. The user is then presented with a leakage graphic report overlaid on a map with streets and pipes. Why use a satellite to acquire images?

As satellites orbit the earth at a very high altitude they have the capacity to process 3.500 square kilometer images, therefore covering entire distribution systems. Also, our technology can be used independently of weather conditions and time of the day.
