In a recent statement, GroundMetrics says it raised the capital from members of Southern California’s Tech Coast Angels to help commercialize a new class of sensing technology and that the funds would be used to provide advanced survey and monitoring services directly to energy, mining, and environmental companies.
GroundMetrics offers to conduct electromagnetic (EM) surveys worldwide, saying its eQube electric-field sensing technology enables the company to acquire data in extremely arid regions, despite sand, ice, exposed rock, and other challenging terrain.
—San Diego-based Ormet Circuits, which makes conductive pastes used in the manufacture of advanced electronic devices, has raised $1 million from investors, according to a recent regulatory filing. On its website, the company says its lead-free conductive pastes, based on a technology called Transient Liquid Phase Sintering (TLPS), are used in semiconductor packaging, printed circuit boards, photovoltaics, and other applications. The company says its technology is covered by 24 issued patents.
