On this weeks episode of the Space Economy podcast I’m taking to Tahir Merali, COO of the startup 4pi Lab who are planning to build a constellation of small satellites in Low Earth Orbit to detect small wildfires.
It’s a fascinating idea. Once operational, the service is designed to give communities and governments who want access to the data, as early a heads-up as possible so the decision maker can decide what to do about the wildfires. But before they begin building satellites, the company is working on developing its optical sensor.
