OroraTech 1

OroraTech 1 [Orora Technologies]

OroraTech 1 is a prototype satellite by Orora Technologies to detect wild fires. It is the precursor mission to a larger constellation of wild fire detection satellites.

The OroraTech-1 satellite is based on an enlarged 6U CubeSat version of Spire's Lemur-2 cubesat and features customized experiments instead of the standard Lemur payload.

It carries OroraTech’s unique and proprietary thermal-infrared camera and data processing unit designed to detect fires and transmit the data using Spire’s satellite and ground network. The technology will help identify and monitor the areas at risk of wildfires and enable early detection of wildfire hotspots.
