Three Innovate employees, Brenda Ellis, Brent Johnson, and Kathy Goodale, have worked many hours of overtime in recent weeks at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center, near Sioux Falls, SD. They have been working diligently to manage multiple activations of the International Charter for Space and Major Disasters to ensure that satellite capabilities from many countries are brought to bear. These activations are providing past and present satellite data to support storm damage assessments and cleanup efforts following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. In addition to hurricanes impacting many Caribbean nations and the U.S., these three staff members also continue to support over 70 wildfires currently burning in the western U.S.
On behalf of the entire Innovate team, thank you for all your hard work!
