The Story of Tempest...
On November 8th, 2018, Paradise California (our Founder’s home town) burned. His family’s house was destroyed, but 85-people lost their lives amidst the over $10-billion in damage. It could have been prevented if better intelligence were available to forestry officials.
In 2021, Ty Audronis (our founder) and Dana Abramovitz (our co-founder) were brainstorming ideas for a SXSW presentation, and Ty blurted out “drone battalions!” telling Dana of how they can help, and that “someone” needs to create them. Dana replied “yes… you need to do this.” and Tempest was born.
The first iteration of Harbinger’s design (our flagship product) focused solely around drones, and grouping them into battalions (as you can see from our first corporate video here). But we’ve since moved on to include static sensors (such as security cameras) and even crowdsourced data via mobile app.
