SATELLITE DATA FOR BETTER DECISION MAKING IN PRECISION FARMING
Sentinel-1 spaceborne radar (SAR) data has a resolution of 20x20 m and a repetition of 6 days for Europe/12 days for the world. The enhanced SAR vegetation index (ESVI) measures fresh biomass and allows crop monitoring over the whole season and region. It is useful for precision farming, crop insurance and crop monitoring all over the world.
SUPPORT IN LOSS ASSESSEMENT
Efficient loss assessment with spaceborne SAR data for change detecion and zoning. Loss values collected in the field from relevant spots as reference, in combination with a zoning map allow reliable and transparent loss assessment for each single plot.
EARTH OBSERVATION WITH SAR
Synthetic aperture radar works with wavelength that penetrates clouds. This technology is absolutely reliable. The active sensors always transmit the same energy, and each acquisition has the same geometry. With this data you can do statistical analysis over the time-series.
