Every year, communities across the world are struck by natural disasters, causing widespread damage and impacting the most vulnerable. You can’t stop disasters from occurring, but with the right data, tools and expertise you can improve planning and expedite response to minimize the impact on affected communities.
Access to pre- and post-event satellite imagery helps disaster response teams quickly assess damage and monitor changing ground conditions from a safe distance—enabling more effective mobilization of resources.
Building critical context when it matters most
Team Rubicon serves communities by mobilizing veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experience to help people prepare, respond and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises.
