Resson Aerospace delivers customized precision agriculture solutions for large corporate clients. Utilizing recent advances in large-scale cloud-based data processing, swarm robotics and advanced data analytics, their proprietary Resson Agriculture Management and Analytics System (RAMAS™) gives the agriculture operator analytical insight and dynamic control over the farm area. The RAMAS™ data-driven agriculture solution analyzes crop metrics to assess crop status and health, providing operators with the information required to optimize agricultural operations, improve efficiency, boost yields and maximize profitability.
When attached to an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), Resson's infrared and software technology can assess and predict crop yield, disease, and moisture and help farmers to better manage their crops by knowing which areas to spray instead of guessing or spraying the entire field. The precision agricultural market is already a $1.5B market and is expected to grow 148% by 2017.
In June 2016, Resson completed a Series B round totalling $11 million USD ($14M CDN) to scale up and go global, with major investment from McCain Foods Limited and Monsanto.
