QuakeFinder is awarded the 2015 VIA SAT Humanitarian Excellence Award

QuakeFinder was awarded the VIA SAT Humanitarian Excellence Award for 2015 at the recent Satellite 2015 Conference in Washington DC. The award is given to a company or group that uses satellites to promote the welfare of mankind. In this case QuakeFinder uses both ground (QuakeFinder 165 site Magnetometer network) and space( the GOES weather satellite’s IR camera) to develop a system to forecast large earthquakes days before they happen. This research is ongoing and is refining a system to detect these devastating earthquakes, and ultimately to save lives. Congratulations to the QuakeFinder Team (below)
