The best producers will never stop going to the field. But a tool that helps them to detect something is wrong, quickly and without requiring them to travel, is very useful.
Through the access to satellite images, Strider has developed Strider SPACE: a technology that explores images from mapped areas through NDVI analyses and abnormality identification algorithms, spotting areas with plant development failure, loss of biomass, water stress of any other kind of deficit that may harm your crops.
In recent years, many constellations of satellites and microsatellites have been launched. Now, it is possible to photograph any area in the world every single day.
To build SPACE, Strider hired many constellations of satellites that, when combined, allow us to gather terabytes of information about the agribusiness areas in Brazil. After analyzing the history from recent weeks and compare them, SPACE generates a heat map which indicates every piece of the crop which requires attention.
A long-term view of your operation, providing a better understanding of systemic problems and how they have progressed in time.
SPACE also allows you to incorporate images from drones, performing a similar processing and including the images in the alert generation system.
Alerting problems that are not visible to the naked eye, through NDVI analysis and loss of biomass.
Know exactly where to go to solve them. After reviewing the history in recent weeks and comparing them to the latest crops, SPACE generates a heat map highlighting points of attention, and indicating potential problems on the field.
The table below shows the advantages and disadvantages of using drones and satellites:
Drones are more precise, more expensive and cover smaller areas. However, they provide much clearer images.
The most common combination consists of using the satellite for a initial analysis and then fly drones over areas that require attention for a more precise diagnosis.
No need for training.
Monitor the health of your crops from anywhere.
