SLANTRANGE Secures $5M to Scale Sensor and Analytics Technology for Agricultural Drones

Aug 13, 2019

April 29, 2016 SLANTRANGE’s sensor and analytics system can be combined with a drone, allowing farmers to view images of their crops within minutes right on the field and even without a network connection. (Photo: Business Wire) SAN DIEGO, Calif.- April 28, 2016 -(BUSINESS WIRE)– SLANTRANGE , pioneers of a smarter approach to aerial remote sensing and analytics for agriculture, today announced its $5 million Series A equity financing from a consortium of investors led by The Investor Group, a leading San Diego based investment firm. The funding will accelerate the development and scaling of SLANTRANGE’s proprietary drone sensor and analytics technology to help farmers improve operations amid a rapidly transforming business landscape. “Technology is transforming agriculture, and drones represent a key part of that change. Farmers are continually seeking ways to improve crop yields with minimal risk. Drones offer an exciting solution, but historically haven’t been built for the precise needs of the agriculture industry,” said Mike Ritter, CEO of SLANTRANGE. “SLANTRANGE delivers on the promise of drones with an intelligence system that combines hardware and software to bring farmers crop information they need to make better operational decisions. This investment enables us to scale our technology and team to meet the soaring demand we’re seeing from the agricultural community in the United States and beyond.” SLANTRANGE provides sensor and analytics systems for use on drone aircraft which measure a range of conditions, such as crop plant and weed densities, stress from pest infestations, nutrient deficiencies and dehydration. With more accurate and complete intelligence at their fingertips, farmers, crop scouts and agronomists can quickly make decisions to improve their harvest and reduce operational costs. SLANTRANGE began with a focus on applications for corn and soybeans and now has deployments serving multiple crops across the United States and abroad. “SLANTRANGE offers some of the most exciting technology we’ve seen since we started crop consulting in 1988,” said David Brauer. “This technology will make us more effective scouts and assure us that we are not missing any problem spots. As a farmer also, I know this technology will help me get the most out of every acre.” SLANTRANGE provides the most efficient drone data collection and processing speeds for agriculture. The technology is always calibrated with a frame-to-frame, onboard, ambient sunlight spectrometer, enabling more accurate information and insight generation over the course of a growing season or multiple seasons. Unlike conventional mapping techniques, SLANTRANGE technology only requires 20 percent overlap, which means four times more area is covered per flight, drastically cutting costs. Farmers can access a variety of valuable data products within minutes of the drone’s flight, representing an unprecedented turnaround time in the industry and marking a key advantage for timely farming decisions. Critically, the analytics do not require a network connection or uploading of data to the cloud, enabling the system to be used in any location throughout the world. “Technology is transforming agriculture, and drones represent a key part of that change,” said Sheldon Lewis, the lead Series A investor. “Rather than slow, costly and sometimes inaccurate visual inspection, SLANTRANGE helps farmers harness vast amounts of drone data to improve all aspects of their operations. They’re creating a critical new market to help farmers feed a growing world.” About SLANTRANGE SLANTRANGE has pioneered a smarter approach to agricultural intelligence by delivering new layers of information for more control and predictability over agricultural land and more efficient use of resources.
