What We Do

At Agrinosisi, we’re at the forefront of innovation in harnessing cutting-edge drone technology to revolutionize the industry. Our expertise lies in pioneering the use of multi-spectral imaging for thermal remote sensing, a capability that sets us apart in the field. With this advanced technology, we’re able to map a wide range of environments, from farms and streams to sensitive habitats and industrial sites. Whether it’s aiding in urban construction, road development, or enhancing agricultural practices to increase crop yield, our solutions offer diverse applications and unmatched precision.

The Big Industry Problem.

Despite technological advancements, neither commercial nor experimental drones are currently capable of providing scientifically high-quality imagery over large geographic areas that would capture economies of scale attractive in the market. This challenge arises from several factors.

  • Airspace Constraints: The Federal government has imposed severe restrictions on airspace access, limiting the development of drone platforms capable of covering large areas at higher elevations, such as around 3000 ft AGL (Above Ground Level) as opposed to the standard 400 ft AGL.
  • Limited Market Incentives: There are insufficient market incentives to drive the creation of drone platforms with the capability to cover extensive regions in a single flight at elevated altitudes.
  • Range and Sensor Limitations: Existing drone platforms typically have limited range and sensors that are inadequate for delivering high-resolution imagery of scientific quality when operating at higher flight elevations.

We are actively working to overcome these barriers. Through our close relationship with the FAA, we aim to receive a part designation for our drone platform later this year, which will allow us to address these challenges effectively and provide solutions that meet the needs of scientific applications.

The Agrinosis Solution.

For over 16 years, the scientific team at Agrinosis, Inc. has been at the forefront of research and development in drone technology, sensor payloads, and the utilization of drone-based remote sensing data, particularly in the fields of agriculture and natural resources. Through our expertise and advanced remote sensing technology, validated by successful beta testing with our partners at Gallo Winery, we have demonstrated our ability to:

  • Acquire high-resolution, scientifically rigorous imagery covering expansive agricultural areas, such as 10,000 acres or more, in a single flight.
  • Perform radiometric calibration and seamless stitching of imagery obtained from these flights, producing orthorectified mosaics of exceptional scientific and geolocational accuracy.
  • Process these orthomosaics into actionable insights of significant value to growers, facilitating informed decision-making and optimized agricultural practices.

In short, our cutting-edge algorithms empower us not just to compete, but to revolutionize and lead in the provision of scientific information to growers. Leveraging the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence, we employ a rigorous analytical approach that transforms spectral sensor inputs into highly predictable information outputs. This distinctive capability sets us apart as pioneers in the realm of agriculture and remote sensing.

Endless Opportunity to Impact the World of Agriculture

This groundbreaking innovation holds immense potential to revolutionize the world as we know it. By harnessing real-time drone data across vast expanses of land, spanning thousands of acres, we stand poised to significantly enhance commercial agricultural management worldwide, thereby bolstering food production and safeguarding precious water resources.

In subsequent phases, Agrinosis will leverage this powerful platform to delve into further research, employing machine learning to identify various other critical crop intelligence points such as fungi, pests, soil moisture, and invasive species.

Presently, Agrinosis is privileged to beta test with our partner E&J Gallo, who has provided invaluable insights into their specific information needs and existing investments in remote sensing services. The success of this project promises to yield information products of unparalleled quality and affordability, surpassing current offerings available to Gallo and other growers. This marks the initial stride towards a global paradigm shift aimed at maximizing crop yields on a commercial scale, transcending geographical constraints.

Truly, the impact of this endeavor has the potential to reshape our world in profound ways.
