Black Tiers’ Autonomous Drone as a Service aerial intelligence platform gives agriculture professionals greater access to data about their farming assets and day-to-day operations.
Data, and the analysis derived from Black Tiers’ autonomous drones, is critically important to a farmer. The most common use case of drone derived data and analytics is early weed and disease detection, which protects crop yield and reduces herbicide use. Farmers also look for plant counting analytics, which can increase yield by improving early-season replanting and better predict yields, in the data they are looking for from a drone system. These use cases and others also have a valuable labor savings component as well, as human crop scouting, either by farm staff or a paid agronomist, is potentially reduced. Black Tiers’ fully-automated drone, takes care of the mission planning, flight, charging, data processing, and data analysis, so our customers only need to focus on what to do with that information.
