Winners of the Aspire with ESA enter the Space Tech sector with SmartAgriSat platform

EZ Lab stands as the sole Italian company to secure victory in the European Space Agency’s Aspire with ESA call for proposals. Amongst the pool of over 80 global competitors, EZ Lab emerged as the triumphant winner. The SmartAgriSat project revolves around precision agriculture, utilizing the pioneering expertise of EZ Lab to harness the capabilities of space technologies and blockchain. This integration aims to optimize resource consumption, combat water wastage, and reduce CO₂ emissions.

What’s SmartAgriSat?

SmartAgriSat is an innovative online platform harnessing satellite data to assist farmers in optimizing their resource utilization while minimizing the environmental impact of their operations. This platform operates by processing images acquired from ESA satellites. By employing AI algorithms, images are meticulously analyzed to detect any irregularities or deviations in the crops, including the presence of diseases, pests, or deficiencies in water and fertilizer supply. Data are then presented to farmers in a visually intuitive and comprehensible manner, empowering them to make well-informed decisions.

«Multispectral analysis of these images will tell us many things. From vegetation health, to soil moisture, to pests presence. Coupled with the existing data on the farm’s production, this additional ‘x-ray’ capability enables us to provide farmers with even more accurate guidance and recommendations. This empowers them to make informed decisions on how to optimize their land cultivation practices, thereby minimizing waste and pollutants».
