Aspiring Universe has announced it has applied its breakthrough remote sensing technology to create unique and rigorous insights for cropland investors. Driven by proprietary models reading data streams from 20+ satellites and leveraging historical ground and aerial data, the product offers unprecedented accuracy at scale. Until now, the diligence process for land purchases has relied on in-person on-site verification, limited historical records, and customized drone or airplane flights. These analyses are time-consuming and not directly comparable across properties, limiting the number of opportunities that can be reasonably and efficiently screened.
Aspiring Universe has solved these problems by creating a 20-year daily database at 100-foot resolution for every plot of farmland across the globe. The company integrates multiple remote sensing data layers, and uses biophysical-based process models, combined with artificial intelligence and supercomputing, to efficiently assess crop performance, water availability, management practices, nutrient use, and carbon retention.
FarmScreen provides 10 years of historical productivity data and puts that into context with comparisons to neighboring fields, making it possible to identify low-performing areas that can be targeted for improvement. This enables investors to identify risks, as well as opportunities that could provide a higher return on investment.
