The team is made up of Architects and Engineers, qualified to license and detail projects for highly complex constructions, to use artificial intelligence, processing data from satellite technology, thus achieving the proper diagnosis of intervention sites and applying predictive algorithms to evaluate the evolution of a particular property or operation. The data obtained are essential to start work governed by good practices.

OWL is therefore focused on correctly interpreting the context of the intervention area and the customer's expectations. One of the team's secrets is the focus on getting off to a good start:

"Start well to deliver well."


Vision

“Our Watch Leads (OWL) stands for a vision that leads the development of smarter territories and cities, greener buildings and neighbourhoods. It also means that this vision is "Ours", in the sense that it is shared between OWL and its suppliers, customers and associates. Our Watch Leads is a vision shared with all the people that identify with and want to join this leadership.”


"OWL's products reduce costs spent in the survey of land properties or buildings, replacing travels and hours spent gathering in-situ information. Users will amplify their technical and commercial reach to any Area of Interest in the world. Intervention sites, previously considered too remote, are now just a click away."

Mission

Our Watch Leads – OWL's mission is to democratize the access to Satellite Earth Observation data, enabling users to understand and use this technology and the various concrete assessments that derive from it.

OWL's products allow remote access to various parameters such as topography and soil at risk of collapse, land surface temperature, water in the soil and biodiversity, among others. This is achieved by the satellite assessment of several square kilometers simultaneously, with resolutions of up to 0.30m/pixel, with higher speed and more relevant concrete data, when compared to traditional in-situ survey methods.


This allows users to save time and resources avoiding unnecessary travel, as well as the hours of research and technical meetings with local agents.
These advantages will increase, following the growing trends for remote work or in periods like the current ones, with pandemics or with international conflicts, when mobility is conditioned.

What our clients say about us

Tipografia Lousanense

“Our watch Leads team was essential when it came to creating a sustainable project. For us, more than a simple residential project, we were looking for innovative solutions that would add value to our enterprise. With the satellite data survey, we managed to make the most of the space and discover the biodiversity of the land, resulting in the presentation of a spectacular water line along the intervention and turning our property into a green neighbourhood, with maximum balance between the environment, the well-being of users and our profitability. The OWL team presented a proposal that exceeded our expectations. Simply brilliant!”
