Farm Wide Wi-Fi

Farm wide connectivity is essential to advancing farming operations through the use of digital agriculture. This project is building antenna arrays that will enable tractors and other farming equipment to become long-range roving Wi-Fi devices.

TRAKKA - Making Data Flow

Livestock traceability is becoming an increasingly valuable asset with many auction houses providing a price premium for cattle with complete data records. This project aims to transform the red meat supply chain by developing a self-sustaining data sharing platform called TRAKKA to resolve the challenge of data control, compatibility and sharing.

Water Leak Detection

On-farm water leaks are expensive and this initiative aims to reduce the time taken to detect a major leak to under 1 hour, and a minor leak to under 24 hours.

Haystack Fire Prevention

Haystack fires occur without little warning and this initiative aims to identify the data that is most critical to understand haystack degradation, and how best to transmit that data using satellite technologies.

Rangelands Carbon

Measuring soil carbon, and determining how much carbon should be retained, is a challenge which this project aims to address through development of data driven models that use biomass and vegetation measured via satellite imagery, as proxies for soil carbon.
