– The CEO of ICEYE, Rafal Modrzewski, spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos about the role of satellite technology in insurance response.
– He emphasized the use of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) in providing quick and reliable information for governments and insurance companies to respond to natural disasters in near real-time.
– Modrzewski noted the importance of satellite technology in rebuilding trust and addressing global challenges, particularly in insurance.
– He highlighted the challenges posed by new technologies, such as AI and space tech, and emphasized the need for clear regulatory frameworks.
– Despite short-term challenges, Modrzewski expressed optimism about the long-term benefits of these technologies.
– He emphasized the role of satellite technology, specifically SAR, in addressing climate change and global risk management.
– SAR’s ability to track changes and predict natural disasters provides valuable insights for governments and insurance companies to respond rapidly and accurately.
– Modrzewski highlighted the role of satellite data in empowering governments and industries to address societal challenges, such as natural disasters, national security, deforestation, and marine preservation.
– He noted that SAR technology is a game-changer for insurers and governments in responding to natural perils and enabling near real-time situational awareness.
– Modrzewski called for greater collaboration through public-private partnerships to address the increasing impact of climate-related perils.
– ICEYE supports these partnerships to reduce the protection gap and deliver innovative insurance or assistance to at-risk uninsured populations.
– Modrzewski predicted that satellite technology will revolutionize various industries, including improved carbon sequestration management, initiatives for ocean cleaning, and the development of autonomous shipping systems.
