OroraTech is expanding into North America
The Munich-based company recently established OroraTech Ltd. in Canada, continuing its expansion in North America. The effectiveness of the technology was demonstrated in February when Chile was hit by particularly devastating forest fires following a severe heat wave. OroraTech made a significant contribution to the firefighting efforts. With the future deployment of its own in-orbit sensor systems, customers around the world will have access to forest fire information. Particularly beneficial is low latency, enabling faster decisions and more effective response strategies.
“I am excited to join the great team at OroraTech. Thermal information, provided in real-time and globally, has tremendous business potential. You need intelligence from space to make smart decisions on Earth: To protect your business, manage natural hazards, and predict risks. With OroraTech’s solutions, our customers world-wide have a detailed view from the top to manage their assets effectively, and to move our world into a sustainable economy,“ says Axel Roenneke.
