On October 8, Innovation Committee met with the fifth of the five blockbuster projects identified in 2018. Chicho led the discussion with DGE – Training Center for Applied Geodesy and Photogrammetry Director Prof Louie Balicanta regarding how best UPERDFI can assist the DREAM-Lidar Commercial Services in progressing its business.
Previous discussions with the other four projects were held in August to September: (1) the FISH-I Project; (2) Village-Based Telecommunications Station Project; (3) VISSER Science Lab; and (4) Smart Surface. Each venture has unique challenges for which our Innovation Committee will need to craft specific approaches.
