Ando Hazama x Cube Earth] Promoting Digitalization of Crisis Management Operations with "Smart Disaster Prevention System

Ando Hazama invested in Cube Earth, a company selected for the "Ando Hazama New Business Co-Creation Program 2022" (Note 1), which was implemented as part of Ando Hazama's efforts to realize its long-term vision "Ando Hazama VISION 2030"!

Background of Investment

Cube Earth is a start-up venture company that is providing "smart disaster prevention systems" to local governments by utilizing its geographic information system (Note 2) platform "Cube Earth," which has been patented in the United States and Japan.

In recent years, natural disasters have tended to become more severe and frequent due to climate change caused by global warming, resulting in a great deal of damage, but there are limits to what can be done with levees and other hardware to prevent disasters. On the other hand, the means for local governments to share and communicate information in the event of a disaster are still mainly analog, and the digitalization of crisis management operations using Cube Earth's "Smart Disaster Prevention System" is expected to be in great demand.

The "Smart Disaster Prevention System" is a system for timely transmission of information on disaster damage, evacuation center operations, and the safety of evacuees in the event of a disaster. The platform, "Cube Earth," is a simple system that can quickly convert public information into mesh data, which is highly stable and resistant to freezing, and can also be used offline during power outages, making it an effective system in times of disaster.

Ando Hazama will invest the necessary funds for system construction, etc., and will fully support Cube Earth's business expansion by utilizing our sales network.
