Thermal infrared microsatellites
The global food system uses 70% of our available fresh water but wastes 60% of it. With threats such as climate change, land degradation, and population growth looming, there is an urgent need for the agricultural industry to rethink its consumption of resources. Moreover, unmitigated crop stress can lead to huge repercussions across supply chains, and today’s satellite systems don’t provide farmers with the granularity needed for actionable, real-time insights.
Using thermal infrared microsatellites for global land surface temperature monitoring, constellr’s technology makes it possible to detect plant water stress immediately and take mitigative action before crop damage occurs. By contributing to enhanced yields, reduced operating costs and optimized resource and supply chain management, constellr will help to feed 10 billion people by 2050.
