ASTERRA's Recover technology is used to locate leaks in water distribution systems by utilizing specialized RADAR signals from satellites. This radar allows ASTERRA to illuminate the areas of interest and collect the resulting reflected signals. These signals are analyzed and processed to identify specific indicators of wet soil saturated with potable water. The result is a map showing likely leak locations. According to the impact calculator on ASTERRA's website, this year alone their technology has saved over 100 million gallons of water. "Providing solutions to the world's water problems is our mission and is critical everywhere across the globe," said Elly Perets, CEO of ASTERRA.
In addition to this event, ASTERRA is hosting a surprising leader in the leak detection industry, a dog named Vessel, at WEFTEC booth #4415 on October 19th at 2pm.
