PlanetWatchers was founded by ex-members of an elite Israeli military intelligence unit with the single goal of bringing the analysis of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to the commercial world.
Unlike traditional remote sensing methods that rely on optical data, often restricted by poor weather or light conditions, SAR operates in all weather and light conditions, allowing for 100% visibility.
SAR data is an incredibly complex and challenging data source that requires unique skills and accumulated knowledge. We use our skills in advanced machine learning and highly efficient algorithms to turn comprehensive geospatial data sources into valuable and actionable insights.
Focussing predominantly within the crop insurance industry, we turn months of manual assessment into minutes of automated analysis. Our accurate and efficient analysis, available on a global scale is used by the crop insurance industry to support insurance policies and validate claims data.
Planting dates, acreage reporting, crop classification and detailed damage analysis of flood and wind events are a few of the core services we offer. Climate change is bringing about vast changes within the agricultural sector. We provide cover crop and tillage detection as part of our advanced services, supporting sustainable agriculture.
