Switzerland, October 1, 2014: senseFly has joined AgGateway, becoming the first Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) manufacturer to join this non-profit consortium of businesses that serves the agriculture industry.
This step will allow senseFly to team up closely with other council members to help define appropriate guidelines and implementation protocols that in turn, improve the integration of UAV data into the precision agriculture workflow.
On the other hand, senseFly will find it easier to further optimise its technology to match the evolving needs of the industry through the invaluable market feedback acquired fromAgGateway membership.
Jean-Christophe Zufferey, CEO of senseFly said, “We then achieved a new level of integration with the arrival of the multiSPEC 4C camera, which was co-developed with agronomy specialists Airinov and the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA). Joining AgGateway is now the next logical step. We look forward to contributing our insight and experience to the Precision Ag Council so that this group can help farmers do more of what matters: accurately assess and manage their crops; increase yields; and grow their businesses.”
