Amira Global is celebrating its Members, new and old. Today we shine the spotlight on Rosor, speaking with COO and Co-founder John Balatbat in Toronto, Canada.
Q1. What would you like the Amira community to know about your business?
Rosor is a Canadian geophysical data provider, formed in late Spring 2020. Our company looks to innovate the acquisition, analysis, and access of geophysical data to optimize cost, quality, and turnaround times. To date, we’ve integrated unmanned aerial systems technology in data acquisition as an alternative to existing remote sensing practices, adding value in autonomous capabilities and capacity to scale. Operating beyond visual line of sight is a nearing milestone for our company and we look forward to its application within base/precious metals exploration. With our strategic partnerships in airborne geophysics and data processing, our company will be built into a quality source of information and intelligence, providing high resolution data with accurate sourcing of actionable insights in real time.
Q2. What is the problem that, if solved, would make the biggest difference in our industry?
As part of our strategic vision, our company addresses the following concerns in geophysical data: low quality and large datasets. Low quality data can present missing pieces, inconsistent formatting, and duplications which render extracted information as useless; large datasets can be difficult to process, wasting time and resources if not processed correctly. To mitigate these concerns, our company focuses on the development of each phase: data acquisition, analysis, and access. Successfully addressing these concerns in geophysical data optimizes the quality, cost, and turnaround time of the information extracted; providing base/precious metal exploration companies with greater accuracy in identifying ore deposits.
Q3. What do you think are the greatest challenges to successful collaboration and how can they be overcome?
Cross-pollination, the alignment of multiple disciplines to achieve breakthrough results is a challenge to which Rosor undertakes. Collaboration amongst diverse specializations can lead to extraordinary discoveries, it offers different perspectives to address a market gap and fosters innovation potentially exceeding status quo. However, this process is susceptible to producing insignificant results if not managed properly. As part of our innovation strategy, field concentration and balanced selection of disciplines are implemented to mitigate decline and promote successful collaboration
Q4. Innovation has its origins in addressing challenges or leveraging R&D – what are your success stories?
Rosor’s success in research and development stems from two main sources: our team and strategic partnerships. Our team has fully integrated unmanned aerial systems technology to airborne geophysics applications, completing full scale tests to mitigate technical errors and ensure successful acquisition of geophysical data. Our company is partnered with multiple research and development organizations that leverage initiatives in developing new technologies e.g. The Centre of Excellence in Mining Innovation, and The Ontario Centre for Innovation are two organizations that support our company in research and development.
Q5. From whom do you drawn your greatest inspiration?
Our company draws inspiration from our team: their potential and drive to bring change defines Rosor’s value. Their character, dedication, and experience are the foundation of the company, our solutions are reflective of this and we look forward to demonstrating this in years to come.
