Thursday, February 27th 2014


Upon successful completion of the 2013 North American agricultural monitoring program, BlackBridge officially launches its agriculture solutions on a global level. New programs are already being implemented for subscribers in the UK and South America, and new regions will follow later this year, including North America, where the program will start running in May.

This new imagery service leverages the exceptional collection capacity of the RapidEye constellation, providing access to an enormous pool of multitemporal, orthorectified five-meter, imagery collected throughout the season. Agro-consulting firms, amongst other customers, will benefit from this unique information source for extracting accurate and timely information on crop variables.
 
The other key feature of these programs is the cloud-based technology that allows subscribers to have fast and easy access to the imagery collected everyday shortly after acquisition. Access to archived imagery from past seasons is also an option to program subscribers.
 
“These programs are the result of BlackBridge responding to the needs of the agricultural market,” explains Karsten Frotscher, product manager. “The concept for these programs and the technological solution behind them have been developed in response to customer requests for more imagery and timely access to it. We have addressed this demand with programs that offer a cost-effective solution to accessing imagery acquired over large agricultural areas. We are really excited about it, as we truly believe this is the type of program the market has been longing to see for many years.”
