Precision Forestry with Satellite Connectivity
Harness satellite connectivity for digital data collection and operational control, facilitating precision forestry. We provide the tools for transmitting data that improve forestry operations, mitigates risks, improves harvesting efficiency, and reduces overall costs.
In the long run you will see improved wood quality, ensuring you reduce wastage while increasing profits – all while protecting the environment from unnecessary loss.
Utilising satellite connectivity in forestry
Reliable communication is key for forest workers - especially those at risk during extreme cold, heavy rain or high windy weather conditions. Stay in touch with lone workers for real-time knowledge of their position in the field.
Satellites will transmit key data from forests with limited or no terrestrial coverage allowing for precision forestry from afar - saving time and money for forest services.
Personnel trackers provide location updates as frequently as every 15 seconds ensuring managers have a precise view of where their team members are in woods and forests, aiding better workload assessments and safety.
Speed of response is an essential element in emergency rescue management. Couple your local area sensor network with a satellite device for data backhaul, and you'll know within seconds when temperatures, winds and waters rise above normal parameters.
Drones are transforming forestry operations, from spotting invasive species, to monitoring contractors' work, to assessing the impact of forest dangers. With Ground Control, you can stay connected with your drones wherever they are.
Getting your data back in a format that your existing systems can interpret is easy with Ground Control. Our fully-featured APIs and our online platform Cloudloop delivers device / subscription management, and tracking capabilities.

Preventing Illegal Deforestation
The world’s two largest rainforests, the Congo Basin and the Amazon, are under threat from illegal extraction activities. Unfortunately, authorities have long lacked the means and mechanisms to deal with these illegalities which destroy ecosystems and undermine both forest and indigenous people’s livelihoods.
Horticultural – Faraway Fieldwork
Various horticultural organisations have approached us over the last few years to provide remote worker tracking for their field workers.
Automated Landslide Monitoring
Slide Sentinel is a fully automated landslide monitoring system using RTK. It regularly monitors landslide activity with high spatiotemporal resolution and centimetre-level accuracy for long-term deployments. Measuring this way aids in early warning information and limits the use of invasive and expensive drilling.
