Tenchijin COMPASSknowaterleak(Leakage Risk Assessment and Management System)

Minimize accidents and optimize maintenance cost by predicting risks with smart big data.

Leakages in water pipes occur because of internal and external factors. Internal factors include pipe thickness decrease and pressure shocks. External factors include temperatures and land motions. When the former are shared by the customer and protected, the latter are directly measured by satellites.

  • ・ Customized UI for each water utility
  • ・ Cloud system for quick information sharing with related parties
  • ・ Provided at 25% the cost of similar services from other companies
  • ・ Continued use of the service increases learning data and improves the accuracy of AI predictions

In addition, the expected benefits of this solution include up to 65% reduction in inspection costs and up to 85% reduction in the investigation period through projects with local authorities conducted in FY2022 with the Japanese Cabinet Office.

Renewable Energy

Tenchijin COMPASSAnalysis Tool for Optimal Wind Power Farms

Data-driven search for energy infrastructure construction sites and speed up decision-making, such as streamlining the installation process.

Compass searches for the most suitable sites by analysing for topography, precipitation and other elements with satellite data and its own AI algorithm. It supports speedy decision making for profitability, improving ESG scores and contributing to the SDGs.

Carbon Offset

Tenchijin COMPASSMethodology to Estimate Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Rice Paddies

Support the acquisition and assessment of carbon credits by calculating greenhouse gas emissions and savings through space big data,

Tenchijin has successfully developed a methodology to estimate methane emissions from paddy fields. The methodology, for which Tenchijin has applied for a patent, is a unique methodology that combines Tenchijin's strengths in satellite data, AI analysis and expertise in paddy farming. The methodology excels in understanding the 'history of water management', which is a major factor in methane emissions, by utilising optical satellite imagery, SAR imagery and climate data acquired from satellites.

We are thinking of, for example, providing data and services to support the issuance of carbon credits by measuring and monitoring the paddy methane that small rice farmers and others reduce (and have reduced), in collaboration with business partners.

Tenchijin COMPASSWaterWatch α

WebGIS service to analyze dams, rivers, lakes and reservoirs by monitoring water bodies.

This service can display changes in water bodies over time for a specified area. By selecting on the plot of the displayed graph, it displays the date, water area percentage and an image of the water body area with little to no time lag. Users can determine how much it differs from the reference water body area.

It is free and can be used without registering an account.
