Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 11, 2010
GeoOptics, a community of entrepreneurs and scientists developing the CICERO Project (Community Initiative for Cellular Earth Remote Observation), and its partner CU/LASP are holding a special event for a select group of policymakers, scientists, technologists, investors and journalists in Boulder, October 13-15.
The event will update industry insiders on the development status of CICERO and feature space hardware prototypes, provide an update on the development status, introduce major partners, and describe the business model designed to revolutionize the market for digital earth data.
“We are at a crossroads with our planet. Climate change, disaster response, commodity management, transportation logistics, energy consumption and a host of rising, global demands are increasing the need for more accurate atmospheric monitoring and weather forecasting. With the advent of small, affordable satellites providing real-time data-as-a-service, combined with a new technology called GPS radio occultation, GeoOptics is poised at the next frontier of digitizing the planet.” -- Gen. Wesley Clark (USA-Ret.), GeoOptics Board Advisor
