FarmSpace Systems, an Alamo, Tenn.-based company owned and led by veterans, says it is launching a complete package of offerings for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), including sales of the devices, flight training and service packages.
The advanced technology provides situational awareness to farmers, who can collect crop images and data on plant health for use in prescription programs that will guide variable-rate-delivery farm equipment.
“It is important for the success of these farmers that we not only give them the equipment they need, but properly train them to use it and are available to consult and service their equipment after the sale,” says Lt. Gen. John “Glad” Castellaw, who served in the Marine Corps for 36 years and is now president and CEO of FarmSpace Systems. “That is what sets our business model apart from other distributors. We will be there after the sale to make sure the product delivers on the expectations.”
The company says its team has decades of experience in the use of geographic information system (GIS)-enabled systems and is familiar with integrating varieties of data into a single, usable platform. FarmSpace Systems sells and services the IRIS+ and X8+ drones from 3D Robotics.
