Building Radar provides a global, satellite-based online search engine for new construction projects. This innovative solution opens new doors for the use of precision satellite imagery worldwide. The startup was incubated at ESA BIC Bavaria for two years and was awarded the overall winner of the Copernicus Masters 2015 competition, both initiatives managed by AZO Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen.
The startup was and is still supported by ESA BIC Bavaria’s technical partner DLR in the fields of image processing, data sources, image classification and urban monitoring. Paul Indinger, Managing Director of Building Radar, explained about the cooperation of Building Radar and AZO respectively ESA BIC Bavaria which started in June 2015 as follows:
The ESA BIC Bavaria network has been a major part of boosting our company business right from the start of our collaboration in 2015. ESA BIC Bavaria thus helped Building Radar to become the global market leader in tracking building projects with the help of satellite picture technology.
ESA BIC Bavaria serves as an essential basis for our development from a three-man startup into a globally operating high-tech company. I fully trust in the future support of Building Radar to further boost our technological development.
ESA BIC Bavaria also assists Building Radar as a powerful and outstanding marketing and public relations partner. It’s technological and business expertise, in particular, supports us in reaching our business goals and provides confidence in our ability to reach our medium- and long-term business goals.
I wholeheartedly declare that ESA BIC Bavaria is one of the key elements in our success. I highly recommend ESA BIC Bavaria to other technology startups.
Building Radar joined the ESA BIC Bavaria from June 2015 until May 2017.
