NAGOYA, JAPAN — SORA Technology Corporation (Headquarters: Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Founder and CEO: Yosuke Kaneko), a leader in aerospace technology and AI solutions, is proud to announce its feature in the June 2024 issue of Forbes Japan.

◾️Innovative Malaria Control Using Drones and AI

SORA Technology has developed a groundbreaking solution for Malaria control through Larval Source Management (LSM), which traditionally requires substantial manpower and has significant environmental impacts due to extensive insecticide use. By integrating drones and AI, SORA’s approach significantly reduces both labor and chemical usage, making it a scalable and environmentally friendly option. This innovative method is currently being rolled out in several West African countries deeply affected by malaria.
