In response to growing global concern over the impact of extreme climatic and other environmental events on critical infrastructure, Space-Time Insight™ today announced the release of an upgrade to its Space-Time Crisis Composite.

‘’The Space-Time Crisis Composite correlates real-time streaming data with enterprise data and weather and environmental feeds to provide operators of critical infrastructure with rich geospatial analytics that enable fast, informed action directly from a satellite view of operating assets and surrounding urban and suburban terrain,’’ states Mark L. Feldman, Ph.D., CEO of Space-Time Insight.

Hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, ice, floods and other environmental events are undermining aging infrastructure everywhere, damaging the ability of public utilities to deliver safe, quality service to their communities. Scientists are debating claims that if we halt global warming, but everything else stays the same, we still can expect dramatic increases in hurricane damage. Similar claims are debated for other extreme events.    

‘’No matter what your position on the climate and its impact,’’ says Feldman, ‘’all critical infrastructure companies must be prepared. The first release of the Space-Time Crisis Composite focused on wildfires and related weather events. It helped electric utilities in California visually balance transmission and manage distribution through devastating summer fires.’ “This release of the composite adds geospatial analytics that correlate the effects of hurricanes, earthquakes, lightning, ice storms and man-made events on grid assets and supports on-screen action scripts that guide operators in taking fast action before, during and after the event.”

Space-Time Insight has been selected as a finalist for the Platts Global Energy Commercial Technology of the Year award for 2009. The company is recognized for how its geospatial visual analytics correlate real-time streaming data with enterprise data and enable informed response directly from a satellite image of the grid and surrounding terrain.
