Botlink and AgEagle Aerial Systems announce a seamless flow of actionable aerial data into the agX Platform.
This integration makes it quick and easy for farmers and agronomists to put their AgEagle drone data to work in agX Compliant Applications such as SST Summit®, Sirrus®, and Adapt-N®, AgSolver®, and others.
According to Bret Chilcott, AgEagle founder and CEO, “Handling SD memory cards, manually uploading images to a computer, waiting for precision agriculture maps to be generated and then importing the image data into precision ag software is now a thing of the past.”
Terri Zimmerman, CEO of Botlink adds, “Aerial images from the AgEagle drone can be streamed during flight with an optional LTE cellular data plan, significantly simplifying the work of an agronomist. Fixed wing aerial drones that professional agronomists use today, like the AgEagle, are now essential tools to improve crop efficiencies.”
The AgEagle RX48 and RX60 flight platforms coupled with Botlink’s XRD LTE data-streaming hardware and Botlink Capture flight control software already make it easy for farmers and agronomists to acquire images and create aerial maps of their crops. Now, aerial maps are automatically synced with agX®, further increasing the value of the AgEagle/Botlink platforms for agronomists and farmers. The integration with the agX platform enables ag professionals to benefit from end-to-end automated crop scouting and analysis workflows, saving farmers and agronomists multiple steps and reducing the time between image capture and analysis, Now, the data can be used while it is still timely and actionable.
