EOS Data Analytics to provide precision farming tool on Dragonfly

Luxembourg, 21 October 2020. – The Californian satellite imagery provider EOS Data Analytics will launch two multispectral imagers with South-African Dragonfly Aerospace into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) in 2022, the company announced.

The payloads will be “particularly useful for the commercial agricultural industry,” the company said.

“Multispectral images are critical for tracking environmental changes. They allow the monitoring of selected areas and the accurate detection of zones experiencing destructive human impact. This technology facilitates timely response to the smallest changes in land-use or land-cover and helps to prevent undesired outcomes both in a particular region and worldwide.”

“(T)he integration of this multispectral image data into EOS Crop Monitoring work will provide even more opportunities for precision farming. With the visualized data from the company’s satellite, farmers will be able to accurately monitor and analyze the critical indicators of soil and yield conditions.”
