An Eye in the Sky Focused on Agriculture
An eye in the sky focused on agriculture.
The first of seven satellites for agriculture launched into space Tuesday by SpaceX. Built by Dragonfly Aerospace, the satellite is part of the Transporter-6 mission for customer EOS Data Analytics. The remaining six satellites of the constellation will be deployed over the next three years.
I’ll be honest with you - a lot of this information is over my head! But here is the nitty gritty: The EOS Data Analytics project is the world's first agriculture-focused satellite constellation providing the industry with high-quality data to support efficient and sustainable practices. As far as the images obtained from Dragonfly's EOS SAT-1, they say these will deliver information for harvest monitoring, application mapping, seasonal planning and assessments that analyze information such as soil moisture, yield prediction and biomass levels.
So again - an eye, or eyes in the sky as the first agriculture-focused satellite from EOS Data Analytics rocketed off this week. Six more will follow it over the course of the next three years.
