AgJunction Inc., a provider of hardware and software solutions for precision agriculture, has announced a strategic original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnership with Pulse Aerospace.

Pulse Aerospace is a flight controls and systems developer of advanced helicopter unmanned aerial system (UAS) technologies. The business partnership will integrate Pulse Aerospace’s UAS technology with AgJunction’s SATLOC brand of aerial guidance and application control technologies. Both companies are headquartered in Kansas.

‘This partnership addresses a specific market need; many of our customers are looking to simplify the integration of UAS imagery and spray applications into their existing precision programs, and we believe Pulse's technology will provide just this capability within our SATLOC product line,’ says Rick Heiniger, president and CEO of AgJunction.

Pulse Aerospace’s technology can be used in commercial-grade applications in both light- and heavy-payload environments.

Pulse Aerospace will be the exclusive global OEM for SATLOC application technologies and branding on UAS. Under a separate agreement, SATLOC veteran TJ Craig has been appointed director of agriculture for Pulse Aerospace.

‘Pulse's HeliSynth technology will allow users to carry the payloads necessary to do real work in conditions present in agricultural applications, and we are looking forward to working directly with SATLOC, customers and applicators around the world,” adds Bill Donovan, chief technology officer of Pulse Aerospace.
