25 Million Acres Captured: Sentera UAVs, Sensors, and Software are Leading Agriculture Market
Sentera, Inc., sensors have officially captured over 25 million acres of images. Sentera’s AgVault™ 2.0 Software translates this imagery into actionable data for the precision agriculture industry. Sentera’s unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), precision sensors, and software are recognized by customers for their precision and accuracy, and the ability to capture images of more acres in less time — increasing yields and ROI.
“The team has been working toward this since 1996!” joked Eric Taipale, CEO of Sentera. The Sentera engineering team’s experience stretches back to the mid 1990s at Lockheed Martin. “For us to reach this milestone, capturing an area of imagery that roughly equates to the size of Virginia, is incredibly rewarding. I’m so proud of the team and their accomplishments.”
Sentera has made strong inroads in the agriculture, infrastructure inspection and public safety industries. Customers use Sentera’s sensors and software for the obvious benefits of UAV data capture — increased crop yields, increased profits, cost-savings and safety — and then realize unexpected advantages gained from Sentera’s open platform.
Taipale continued, “While sensing 25 million acres of images is impressive, we’re just getting started,” explaining the company’s technology strategy. “Sensing, data and image collection capabilities are always a focus, we see a clear need for our sensor and software solutions to help real people use their data to solve real problems. Collaboratively.”
Sentera’s recent product launches include the AgVault 2.0 Mobile App with autonomous flight capabilities, and the revolutionary Phoenix 2 UAV.
Since its inception in 2014, Sentera has raised $8.5M in capital from strategic investors and is a leading designer, developer, and manufacturer of software, sensors, and UAVs in the agriculture, infrastructure, and public safety industries. Sentera has more than 200 years of combined experience with sensors, software, UAVs, data management, and engineering solutions. In a single growing season, Sentera’s equipment collected 15,500,000 images and gathered 175 terabytes of data from 8,000 flights.
