How Satellite Terminals can Best Serve the Agri Sector Event | Agri-EPI Centre, Midlands Agri-Tech Innovation Hub | Wednesday, 20. November 2019
The Satcom Terminals Working Group (STWG) is part of the Knowledge Transfer Network, which seeks to link together cross-sector business and innovators to share ideas and the latest discoveries. The STWG is the principal body that brings together relevant agencies, industry and academics to explore, identify and address challenges in the area of satcom terminals and their application.
The upcoming STWG workshop will be a meeting of Satcom and Agriculture professionals that aims to provide a forum for stakeholders to discuss and identify the technology needs of industry, identify challenges and possible solutions in Satcom terminal technologies and Agri-tech systems.
With rapid innovation among antenna and terminal technologies, Satcom services are becoming accessible to a much wider range of users. They can provide communications and data services to remote locations, they are more easily installed, and can be integrated directly into the equipment.
The Agri-tech industry looks to be revolutionised with the use of Satcom along with the development of interconnected machines/vehicles, digital technologies, innovative sensor systems, the Internet of Things, crop monitoring and future innovative applications.
If the Agricultural sector is to take advantage of Satcom opportunities to connect these applications, the use and implications for cross-industry Satcoms & Agri collaboration and an understanding between Satcom and Agriculture professionals will be essential.
Hence this event will have speakers and professionals from both the Satcoms and the Agri-tech sectors.
Chaired by Simon Watts of Avanti on behalf of the STWG, this meeting will be hosted by Les Hurdiss of Agri-EPI Centre and held at the Midlands Agri-Tech Innovation Hub, which is dedicated to the delivery of research, development, demonstration and training on precision agriculture and engineering for the livestock, arable, horticulture and aquaculture sectors.
