The producers of the SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition are pleased to announce the launch of Imagery & Sensing Summit on October 11, 2017 at the Renaissance Washington, Downtown D.C. The Imagery & Sensing Summit will feature a one-day program focused on the rapidly growing market of satellite imagery and remote sensing applications in the agricultural industry.

Satellite imagery and remote sensing technologies are expanding our view of the world and improving it at the same time. Today, some of the most exciting imagery and sensing applications are now being developed for agricultural use; to help farmers efficiently and effectively manage crop health and growth, predict weather patterns, detect weeds, identify plant stress, estimate yield, manage irrigation, and protect life and property. The inaugural Imagery & Sensing Summit directly addresses this innovative technology with the agricultural community.

“The Imagery & Sensing Summit is a day-long program of keynote presentations and group discussions that will explain how farmers and the agricultural community can benefit from cutting-edge satellite technologies,” said Jeffrey Hill, Chairman of the Imagery & Sensing Summit. “Attendees will learn about how the farms of the future can be managed from a tablet or smartphone app, providing access to information on soil temperature, plant health, quality of sunlight and more! Our speakers will include special guests from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other farming organizations, as well as app developers and imagery/sensing service providers. This will be a unique and exciting opportunity for the farming and aerospace communities to engage with and learn from each other.”

Attendees will include farmers and agricultural organizations, land developers, government employees, satellite imagery and remote sensing technology professionals, scientists, engineers, surveyors, and more. The Imagery & Sensing Summit will also feature numerous networking opportunities, including a networking luncheon and evening reception, ensuring that these professionals from all points on the spectrum have a chance to collaborate.

“The data and information provided by satellites are enabling many different industries to run more efficiently, and make better business decisions,” said Lindsey Fuller, Show Director of the Imagery & Sensing Summit. “The goal of the Imagery & Sensing Summit is to bring together the satellite and agribusiness communities to bridge the gap of understanding, and shed light on how farmers and other agriculturalists can use satellite technology to enhance their daily operations.”

The Imagery & Sensing Summit will be held on October 11, 2017 at the Renaissance Washington, Downtown D.C. Hotel at 999 Ninth Street NW, Washington D.C., 20001.
