Building Radar - monitoring construction progress and change detection with satellites

Smart Cities is the focus topic of the new edition of GeoConnexion International Magazine. Building Radar is featured with an article presenting its satellite-supported search engine for construction projects. The Munich startup is incubated at ESA BIC Bavaria and lately was nominated the winner of the Copernicus Masters Earth observation competition, both initiatives managed by AZO.

"Knowing when are where new buildings being constructed around the world is big business for companies active in the construction and maintenance sectors, such as vendors of office furniture and installers. In fact, according to market research, project leads account for about 72bn in revenue each year.

This is something Paul Indinger [Co-founder of Building Radar] knows well" continue reading the GeoConnexion article

Building Radar GmbH
Building Radar supplies verified leads on construction sales so the sales team can focus on selling rather than researching and verifying leads themselves. Use their data analytics platform to stay up to date on all the construction projects in your neighbourhood and around the world. Track your competitors' next moves, or evaluate new strategic partnerships.

They detect new construction projects months earlier than the competitors, which enables you to make your sales first. They also verify lead specs, such as construction phase and building size, so you never call at the wrong time again. Finally, they connect all the dots in their data to provide real-time intelligence on commercial real estate so you can strategically organise your team.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
Building Radar is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria from June 2015 to May 2017. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That doesn't mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defense and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
