WHO ARE YOU?
We've brought Astropreneurs to South Texas, and We've Grown a Few of Our Own.
Permittivity combines a licensed NASA technology with a team of seasoned experts to provide a novel and disruptive leak-detection system for industrial-containment solutions. Permittivity was born in 2019 when the team won first place at the Rockets and Rigs Technology Hack-a-Thon and continues to work closely with oil and gas industry leaders. Current leak detection methods have proven inadequate, resulting in spills that continually and irreparably contaminate groundwater supplies. Permittivity’s technology prevents further negative impact on the environment and saves its customers billions of dollars by providing unmatched remote industrial monitoring.
More recently, the Expanding Frontiers team successfully led the creation of Rockets and Rigs, a statewide initiative that unites the Oil and Gas industry with the rapidly growing NewSpace industry in the development and repurposing of much needed technologies in both industries.
