Tokio Marine Helps Flood Victims in Record Time

Client Challenge

The 2018 Japan floods caused over 1 trillion dollars in property damage and took more than 200 lives. Tokie Marine is Japan’s largest flood insurance company, and getting insurance to those who needed to rebuild their lives was a priority. However, assessing damages across a wide area during extreme weather events is prohibitively difficult.

Orbital Insight Solution

Orbital Insight used Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and AI to drive a technology-based solution by using cloud-penetrating satellite technology to track flood extent and depth.

The information was rapidly delivered to Tokio Marine, which was then able to intersect the data to identify impacted customers.

Client Challenge

The AFWERX innovation lab supports the U.S. Air Force’s mission to fly, fight, and win in air, space, and cyberspace.

Increasing competition from Chinese Artificial Intelligence has prompted the U.S. executive branch and Department of Defense to accelerate the adoption of AI to meet current and future national security challenges.

Orbital Insight Solution

AFWERX awarded Orbital Insight with a SBIR contract to automate geospatial intelligence collection and analysis through multi-modal sources including optical, SAR, and aerial imagery at scale.

“Whenever we rely on government data there is always a lag time. What we’re able to see is real-time flight activity in China, we’re able to see real-time port activity in China, we’re able to see real-time vehicle-traffic congestion data in China. This is able to give us a significant edge in terms of calling market inflection points.”
