And the winner is.... Boston-based GreenSight Agronomics! GreenSight was chosen from a total of 129 applicants from 18 states and six international destinations.
GreenSight Agronomics is building an autonomous data platform that uses automated drones to take daily imagery with the mission of becoming the defacto data platform for aerial information gathered by drones and other aerial imagery sources.
GreenSight’s platform transforms that imagery into actionable information that can optimize businesses, drive automated decision systems and future autonomous robots. The company already has contracts with Arlington-based agencies like DARPA and ONR as well as the Air Force Research Lab, US Army and University of Maryland. See the release.
