XPONENTIAL - SLANTRANGE New Product Line to Advance Precision Agriculture

Airborne sensor and analytics technology leader launches efficiency-doubling package at XPONENTIAL

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SLANTRANGE, pioneers of a smarter approach to aerial remote sensing and analytics for agriculture, today announced the launch of a new product line that will allow growers and agronomists to obtain and process data faster and more efficiently. The two new sensors, SL2i and SL2p, as well as a new version of SLANTVIEW, the company's proprietary data analytics software, together have four patents pending and will more than double the resolution, data collection rate, and processing efficiency over the prior generation. This will enable customers to cover twice as much area in a flight as the previous generation technology did - and four times as much as conventional multispectral mapping techniques.


"We work closely with our customers to understand the problems they are facing on the ground," said Mike Ritter, CEO of SLANTRANGE. "One of the biggest concerns we hear is the race against the clock. Drone battery life limits flight time and affects how efficiently farmers can collect data. We have optimized our new products to maximize the area that can be imaged within a flight to help farmers gain more insights faster, and at a lower cost."

The new version of the analytics software, SLANTVIEW, will offer even faster data processing, typically less than five minutes for a 160-acre field, and new data products, including plant population counts, yield potential, and canopy closure. With the new user interface, customers will more easily access data and streamline their workflow according to individual preferences. The software is tightly integrated with the sensors, which are available in two versions. SL2i is the suggested product for entry-level users while SL2p will offer full multispectral performance for more advanced users.

SLANTRANGE is launching the products at XPONENTIAL, the leading exhibition for the unmanned systems market. The company will be offering demos of the new product line at exhibition booth #1722.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
