Bengaluru’s Pixxel partner with Skymet to share its earth imageries

Author : Pankaj Singh | Published Date : 2019-10-26 

Satellites have changed the game for weather forecasting. It would surely become challenging for forecasters to predict dynamic climate conditions without the help of satellite imageries. It is also the most important and powerful tool used by meteorologist. This has influenced several forecasting companies to invest and build up their techniques by implementing advance and modern solutions.

One such effort was recently seen when Pixxel, an earth imaging company based in Bengaluru, inked a partnership agreement with the Noida-based weather forecaster Skymet. Apparently, the deal focuses on developing products that would benefit small farms by improving their productivity.

According to reliable sources, the venture would enable Skymet to access the imagery company’s high-resolution satellite images, developed to map and observe changes in agricultural phenomena like soil moisture, chlorophyll content and soil & crop quality.

This would benefit small farm owners by increasing their yield and productivity in India while cutting costs, reducing the impact on environment by implementing precision agriculture practices, and by efficiently managing agriculture production.

Reportedly, Pixxel is developing a constellation of small satellites which would capture earth’s images and would provide global coverage every day after finalizing deployment. Once the imagery is sent down to the company’s server, the images from its satellites would be uploaded onto a web platform that would track changes in farms and boost productivity.

In addition to this, Skymet has already revealed that it has teamed up with several NGOs to develop the sustenance of farmers and has deployed 400 agricultural sensors, fleets of drones and 7,500 automated weather stations, which would help farmers recognize the needs of their farms.

Speaking on the development, Awais Ahmed, CEO, Pixxel, said that the company is delighted to join Skymet, a company that would allow it to combine their weather dataset along with its exclusive imagery, benefiting thousands of small farm owners in India by improving their yields as well as lives.
