Airborne Agriculture Analytics from SLANTRANGE: A Scalable Solution for Worldwide Operations
Drone-based imaging and analytics are proving to be a powerful tool to provide new insights to agronomists and farmers in crop research, breeding, and production. The resolution and on-demand nature of drone imaging enable the generation of new information that is both more actionable and more readily available than other imaging sources such as manned aircraft and satellites. However, the effectiveness of most drone imaging solutions in agriculture is limited by 1) the lack of customized information to meet specific information needs on the farm, and 2) the network and computing infrastructure required to support their data collection and processing workflows. SLANTRANGE has created a technology platform that overcomes both of these limitations, enabling an efficient and scalable solution that can be utilized on all of the world's agriculture acres. This webinar will provide an overview of the technology as well as several examples of how the products are creating real value on farms across the globe.
Matthew Barre joined SLANTRANGE in 2016 and is currently serving as the Director of Strategic Development, overseeing all sales, marketing, business development, and strategy for the company. Prior to joining SLANTRANGE, he was the Business Development Manager for the Commercial Business Unit at Daylight Solutions, providing tunable laser-based instruments for medical, life sciences, and industrial markets. And prior to joining Daylight Solutions, he held several program management and business development positions at General Atomics, producing imaging and optical sensor systems for unmanned aircraft. Mr. Barre holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara and an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University.
