Sentera will demonstrate the latest in remote sensing technology, showing how easy it is to scout a field, collect critical NDVI data and use it in the field, while using Sentera’s precision ag sensors and FieldAgent platform. Sentera is a leading designer and supplier of integrated remote sensing and IoT solutions to the agriculture industry. With a presence in over 700 North American retail locations, we make it easy for users to bring in-field data off the farm for further analysis. Our integrated FieldAgent™ Platform, analytics, and sensor products deliver fast, accurate information that improves outcomes for ag professionals and growers.
Aeroptic will be demonstrating, via display, their newest wide area multispectral sensor system. The system, called WAMS, is the first of its kind serving the agriculture industry. Comprised of 14 camera heads, 12 in the visible to visible near infrared spectrum, and 2 in the Long wave infrared (thermal) spectrum. The camera system provides absolutely calibrated imagery enabling imagery to be evaluated spatially and temporally. It can collect hundreds of thousands of acres in a flight day at 10cm resolution at a flight altitude of ~4,500 feet. Whether you are an agronomist looking for scientific grade data, an analytics company developing algorithms and models, the WAMS system provides the most economical, accurate, and highest quality imagery on the market today. Aeroptic was created by the coming together of three industry leaders. For more than a decade, Flight Landata had been providing expeditionary aerial remote sensing services to the US Government in the most austere and hostile places on the planet. What started as Urgent Operational Need to provide deployed forces with imagery and elevation data, expanded into a wider geospatial support mission in more benign environments. GeoVantage had become the leader in tactical Pod-based multispectral imagery collection from light aircraft all over the world. Their focus was precision agriculture, oil and gas exploration and distribution networks, and special imaging projects.
Flight and software demo.
Raven will be conducting live demonstrations of exciting new capabilities using Slingshot and Viper 4 that can help improve operational efficiencies and logistics for ag retailers, custom applicators and large farming operations. It’ll be a highly interactive experience that you’ll want to see in action!
Teralytic makes the world’s first wireless NPK soil sensor, a simple and incredibly easy-to-use product that generates real-time data collection and analysis of all soil types, anywhere in the field. The Teralytic probe uses 23 sensors to provide the most detailed soil quality data available, reporting soil moisture, salinity, aeration, respiration, NPK, air temperature, and humidity—at three different depths. We will demo the probe and smartphone app during the tour.
Mixmate is a fully automated chemical blending and recordkeeping system with modular options for portable or stationary installations and to measure by weight and flow. Simultaneously measure multiple products for fast mixing speeds, typically in 4 to 8 minutes for a large sprayer. The Android app controls the system and synchronizes with our Intersect cloud service to backup data and provides access from the office. Intersect and Mixmate can automate data processing to save time and reduce errors in the office and the field.
Spectrum Technologies will demonstrate in-field weather sensing capabilities with its Watchdog 2900ET weather station. This station monitors air temperature, wind speed, wind direction, relative humidity, dew point, rainfall, solar radiation and evapotranspiration. We will also show a temperature-inversion station and SpecConnect web dashboard for monitoring current weather conditions, record keeping, alerts, sensors and activity.
IntelinAir’s ag-intelligence platform, AgMRI, is built around the premise that growers should spend less time finding issues and more time making strategic decisions. AgMRI allows growers to see which fields are ready to plant and alerts growers when problems arise (emergence issues, weeds, insect infestations, nutritional deficiencies, and disease pressure). IntelinAir will provide a hands-on demo of AgMRI so users can see how easy it is to get alerted to issues and make decisions during the season.
