A look back at the year: what we accomplished and what’s next

At the start of 2022, we introduced Terra Insights to the world. Terra Insights started as an idea—a big idea. Terra Insights started as a way to deliver a better experience for our clients—a one stop shop for the critical asset data they need.

This idea was big enough to unify our trusted and experienced brands—RST Instruments, Measurand, 3vGeomatics, and Syscom Instruments. And this idea was big enough to continue to drive growth with NavStar, joining this past year.

In this post, we’ll take a look back at all that we accomplished in 2022.

A look back at our achievements in 2022

This year has been an exciting one for Terra Insights and our platform of trusted and experienced brands:

RST Instruments

RST Instruments celebrated 45 years as a trusted name in geotechnical instrumentation. RST Instruments launched RSTAR Affinity, the evolution of RST Instruments’ RSTAR constellation of remote, wireless data collection solutions married with its industry-leading instrumentation.


Measurand manufactured and sold a record number of ShapeArray segments. A commitment to continuous improvement saw short lead times, on-time delivery, and high-capacity.


We launched a revamped version of 3vG‘s website. The website is a comprehensive resource for all things InSAR, and it’s been extremely well-received by our clients and prospects.

3vG also launched Displacement DataStream and Motionary. Displacement DataStream is 3vGs’ advanced satellite InSAR monitoring service that rapidly updates displacement measurements after each new image acquisition. Motionary is 3vGs’ web-based data delivery platform for easy data visualization of displacement information.

Syscom Instruments

Syscom Instruments debuted its suite of MR3003 vibration monitoring products at very start of 2022. Over the course of the year, Syscom Instruments released a number of accessories including the new MS2020+ accelerometer and MA3P battery pack.


NavStar joined Terra Insights in October 2022. NavStar’s GeoExplorer software, GPS and GNSS solutions, represent a truly scalable and modular data collection platform.

Terra Insight webinars in 2022

We’re also proud of the success of our webinar series. We’ve hosted six webinars this year, with a clear emphasis on how to use InSAR alongside geotechnical instrumentation for early-risk identification and mitigation:

How Technology is Changing Monitoring Programs in the Mining Sector
Vibration Monitoring for Urban Infrastructure
Protecting Critical Infrastructure with InSAR
Early Risk Identification with InSAR
Monitoring Oil & Gas Pipelines with InSAR
Digital Evolution of Geotechnical Monitoring

What we’re looking forward to in 2023

We’ve accomplished so much this year with Terra Insights as a platform. In 2023, Terra Insights is committed to our vision to be the global platform to provide trusted geotechnical, structural, and geospatial monitoring technology and data delivery solutions. We’ll continue to grow and scale in order to serve our clients with the best monitoring technology possible.


Speak with an Expert

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
