SLANTRANGE will be attending Drone-Con ’17 on July 7th at Palomar College in San Diego, California. The event will include workshops, speaker panels, exhibits, and demonstrations related to the commercial applications of drone technology. Please join us to network with other local San Diego companies, experts, professionals, and enthusiasts.
SLANTRANGE CEO, Michael Ritter, will be speaking at the AUVSI Xponential conference, running May 8 to 11 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. Xponential is the largest, most comprehensive trade show for unmanned systems and robotics, covering both government and commercial applications for drones and other unmanned systems. Michael’s talk, titled “New Advances in In-Field Analytics for Agriculture” will provide insights into the growing market for drone-based imaging and analytics for agriculture and how SLANTRANGE is applying advanced spectral imaging and machine vision techniques to provide new, high-value information to growers and agronomists across the globe. He will also cover the need for scalable data collection and processing workflows to efficiently serve the needs of all agriculture customers, including those who may not always have the high-end computing or network resources required for current data processing architectures.
SLANTRANGE will also be exhibiting in Booth 1131.
SLANTRANGE was featured in a recent article by Louisa Burwood-Taylor at AgFunder News titled, “The Next Generation of Drone Technologies For Agriculture“. The article explores some of the current challenges related to the use of drone technology in agriculture, such as the need for more actionable information on shorter processing timescales, and presents SLANTRANGE as one solution to these challenges. Several other topics are explored, including advances in sensors and the integration of artificial intelligence techniques to improve the analytics.
“Farmers and agronomists need to be able to act upon the information delivered by these systems in a way that shows a tangible return on investment,” Ewan MacFarlane, head of digital agronomy at Origin Enterprises in the UK tells AgFunderNews. “For that, it needs to be made available to them at the time and place that it is needed.”

SLANTRANGE, Inc., a leading provider of next-generation, drone-based remote sensing and analytics systems for agriculture, announced today the availability of their new 3p multispectral sensor system and SlantView™ analytics software for agriculture drones. The 3p is built on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Flight™ drone platform, a highly optimized platform for drones and robotics applications, and is now available for purchase with a variety of flexible processing options to meet the needs of all users, from academic researchers to global enterprise customers to the smallest of farmers.
“We’re very excited to bring our new 3p sensor and SlantView analytics to market at this critical time of the North American growing season,” said Michael Ritter, CEO of SLANTRANGE. “Our technology is designed to bring unique value to growers and agronomists from emergence to harvest and we look forward to seeing all of our new and existing customers put it to work in the fields.”
SLANTRANGE was honored to be included in Bloomberg’s recent list of the “50 Most Promising Startups You’ve Never Heard Of“. The authors started with 50,000 companies founded in the past six years and used criteria such as the amount of funding rounds, the time between funding rounds, the background of the founders, whether the founders had worked together in the past, and many other business factors to narrow the list down to only 50 companies. Notably, SLANTRANGE was the only company from San Diego on the list.
There are a few early clues that a startup will be successful, according to market researcher Quid: Have the company’s founders worked together before? Is the business in a hot sector, one where many other new startups are also focusing? Has it raised funding at a quick pace? Based on those criteria and others, Quid looked at more than 50,000 companies and chose 50 it deemed the most promising.
