Hexagon, OSASI partner for disaster management and prediction solutions

TOKYO – Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division and OSASI Technos Inc. announced a partnership to deliver next-generation disaster management and monitoring solutions. The wide area remote monitoring systems with 3D visualization capabilities will allow governments to detect, predict and simulate impending disasters, enabling them to better plan for and respond to emergency events. The news was announced today at a signing ceremony during the Belgian Economic Mission to Japan.

The partnership brings together OSASI’s advanced on-site sensors and monitoring solutions with the real-time situational awareness and location intelligence capabilities of Hexagon’s Luciad Portfolio. Combining on-site information, such as rainfall measurements and river water levels, with maps, 3D data and other information from third-party sources will provide advanced visualization and real-time analysis to unlock insights for predicting and detecting landslides, mudflows, slope failures and other disasters faster.
