The forest industry is facing unprecedented change due the ever increasing threat of global warming. Forest disturbances resulting from significant wind events and wildfires are increasing dramatically throughout the world. The one in 100-year event is now occurring every 8 years. Aerial AgriTech’s (AAT) solution addresses this issue by providing stakeholders with a platform to assess the extent of forest damage in near real time.
Through the use of satellite platforms AAT can calculate the extent of damage at regional/national scale using bespoke image processing algorithms. Drone technology allows for individual tree calculations at stand level providing an accurate monitory value of damage timber.
