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 standard solar powered
hubs are 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.
Our standard hubs use resilient techniques based on GPRS cellular communications, but
this can be upgraded to satellite communications for locations without coverage.
