At Descartes Labs, we help companies across the agricultural supply chain extract insights from geospatial data. The Airbus SPOT and Pléiades collections power predictive analytics into agricultural production, supply chain efficiencies, and sustainability that aren't otherwise available. These data sets are a valuable business asset.
There was no way to insure cattle growers against fodder shortage with traditional insurance, as classic on-site inspections cannot be applied on grasslands. The Airbus team has worked tirelessly with us to establish a satellite-based index accurately describing grassland production for the entire country. This index has been the start of an innovative insurance product, a true game changer for our activity. Thousands of farmers now benefit from reliable protection against grassland shortage, with paperwork effort reduced to the bare minimum.
