Increase productivity and control with smart farming technology
Agriculture has changed extensively over the last 20 years. Now – with the use of IoT technology enabling smart and precision farming – agricultural productivity improvements can be made in a cost-effective way.
Asset tracking, environmental sensors and smart agriculture technology, enable farmers to reduce waste, enhance productivity and utilise resources including water, electricity and fuel.
Working with farmers and agriculturists to deliver smart farming practices through reliable IoT technology.
Many farms are located out of reach of consistent, reliable cellular connections. A blend of radio and satellite-based IoT bridges the gap to record, transmit, and interpret data signals.
IoT smart farming solutions are built to monitor crop fields with the help of sensors to monitor and manage light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture and crop health.
With automated and on-demand location updates via inbuilt collar tag devices, farmers can see a precise view of where cattle and livestock are in the field, at any time of day or night.
Satellite solutions for farming
RockBLOCK enables farmers and growers to track and monitor livestock send from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of Wi-Fi and GSM networks.RockBLOCK 9602
Highly adaptable, the RockREMOTE guarantees robust communication and provides the vital link to ensure that critical data and analytics keep flowing when the grid stops and cellular connectivity is out of reach.RockREMOTE
The RockSTAR provides real-time tracking and two-way communication for remote field workers. If your team are venturing outside of cellular coverage, send one of these with them to ensure their safety.RockSTAR Professional
Smart farming for farmers and agriculturists
Resilient communications via satellite for Autonomous Agricultural Robots
The global autonomous farm equipment market is worth an estimated $62.89 billion. But without resilient, ubiquitous connectivity, Ag operators won’t be able to reap the full benefits. Read how satellite communications can help.
Empowering climate resilience through satellite-enabled precision farming
Ground Control’s RockBLOCK 9602 is providing vital connectivity for Synnefa’s precision farming tools, helping farmers in Kenya gain greater yields and reduce waste, aligned with the UN’s sustainable development goals.
BGAN M2M’s role in soil moisture monitoring to help combat climate change
As well as optimum vegetation and crop management through soil moisture monitoring, measuring soil moisture also helps to inform our understanding of how the natural environment responds to climate change. Here’s how the BGAN M2M service is supporting this initiative.
Going Global with M2M: Animal Tracking
M2M – or machine-to-machine – solutions are deployed to solve a wide range of challenges, from farmers who want to track and monitor their livestock to scientists studying animals in the wild. In each case, a unique solution is required.
Transmitting Sensor Data Back from Extremely Remote Locations with Gill Instruments
Ground Control offers users the ability to connect to all Gill meteorological sensors, taking key data on a regular basis and transmitting it over satellites at an affordable price.
ActivitySense – How it Works
Our RockSTAR and RockFLEET devices are used throughout the world, tracking all sorts of things – people, vehicles, machines, animals.
