Climate Corporation Taps Airbus to Provide Satellite Imagery
A new global agreement between Airbus Defence and Space and Bayer subsidiary The Climate Corporation is set to deliver satellite imagery to end-users through the Climate FieldView platform, according to a press release on Airbus.com.
Farmers who use Climate FieldView will be able to access high-resolution data of their fields from the Airbus SPOT 6, SPOT 7, and Pléiades satellites throughout the growing season. FieldView customers will have the ability to more precisely monitor crop health and performance, and help them take action in the field before yield is impacted at the end of the season, according to a joint press release. They will also be able to visualize this satellite imagery alongside other data layers in their FieldView account, including planting and yield data.
“We are very pleased to be working with The Climate Corporation to enhance FieldView by providing them with access to updated, cloud-free images within the time frame required to efficiently monitor crops at each key growth stage,” said François Lombard, Head of Intelligence Business at Airbus Defence and Space.
