Satellites & ground truthing
Satellites can cover large areas rapidly and regularly. Ground-truth data enables
calibration of remote-sensing readings, and being on the ground is not subject to
interruption during cloudy periods.

We can supply anonymized data as a by-product of our existing users, or deploy custom
autonomous arrays of sensors to collect the data required. Our equipment is robust as
they are designed for agricultural use so are suitable for unattended operation. They also
have a full range of sensors to detect disturbance or report their location should they
have been moved.
We use resilient techniques based on GPRS cellular communications, but this can be
upgraded to satellite communications for locations without coverage.
