Geospatial technology company AGERpoint welcomes new CEO

AGERpoint, Inc. (“AGERpoint”), a leader in geospatial intelligence and data engineering for natural environments, has appointed Kevin Lang as the company’s Chief Executive Officer.

Lang brings a wealth of experience to his role as a seasoned executive, entrepreneur and thought leader within the emerging technology realm.

“AGERpoint has focused intently on the science behind digitizing plant life to create a foundational layer of ground truth that informs predictive models and decision-making,” said Lang. “Fueled by recent innovation in LiDAR technology and photogrammetric imagery processing, the company is uniquely positioned to provide its customers with software and analytics tools that fuse together diverse data types to enable a deeper understanding of crops, trees and other vegetation.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Kevin as CEO at AGERpoint,” said Dan Levine, managing member of Tenfore Holdings and an AGERpoint board member. “He combines commercial instincts with technological prowess. He also seeks to foster a customer-centric mindset in each area of the business. There is a large, unique opportunity that lies ahead of AGERpoint with implications for food production, food security, economic development, and the environment. We look forward to Kevin’s leadership as we pursue this mission.”

With a sizable patent portfolio, AGERpoint utilizes a combination of artificial intelligence, high performance computing, computer vision and advanced analytics to process, extract objects from and analyze data from multiple geospatial sensors including LiDAR, hyperspectral, multispectral, infrared and visual cameras. Data is acquired using terrestrial vehicles, mobile devices, drones and satellites and fused with other information and human observations to create a highly precise, quantifiable and interactive digital record. There is increasing interest in and exploration into using AGERpoint’s technology for carbon offset verification, correlating above ground plant measures with sub-soil information.

AGERpoint manages and delivers information via a suite of cloud software products. The company also provides supporting services such as advisory, data acquisition, training and custom software development to facilitate technology adoption.

AGERpoint serves a range of clients across agrochemical and food and beverage R&D, forestry, production agriculture, government and conservation organizations.

Prior to AGERpoint, Kevin was Co-Founder and CEO of geospatial startup, spadeGEO. Before that, he was General Manager of Agriculture for PrecisionHawk, a commercial drone technology provider. He also held roles with Deloitte Consulting, the World Economic Forum and began his career in engineering product development for John Deere. Kevin has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University and an MBA from Wake Forest University.

AGERpoint® Awarded a New Patent

Improving real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion

We are excited to announce the issue by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office of a new, and third, patent on December 11, 2018 involving systems, and methods for controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard.

The new patent, US 10,151,839, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCE SENSORS” focuses on the ability to integrate measurements from various technologies, including LiDAR, to calculate the yield of crops in real-time and associate the yield to a specific plant or region within a grower’s holdings.

This patent is related to one of AGERpoint’s additional patents, US 9,983,311, “MODULAR SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCED SENSORS” which focuses on the systems and methods for controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard. This patent supports AGERpoint’s YieldTracker product which tracks harvests throughout a field, providing actual yield data row-by-row.

“This new patent, expands on our library of proprietary expertise around precise agriculture data collection techniques and associated permanent crop analytics,” said Andrew J. Nash, CEO of AGERpoint. He continued with “With every advancement in our technology, our goal is to continue to place precise actionable data in the hands of all value chain participants (food & beverage industry, growers, researchers, agronomists, insurers, industry associations, etc.) to continue to innovate and enhance decision making processes.”

AGERpoint® Awarded Two New Patents

Improving precision data capture abilities for permanent crop yield, growth, vitality, and crop predictions

We are excited to share that we were issued of two new patents involving systems and methods for monitoring agricultural products and determining crop yields with high resolution geo-referenced sensors earlier this spring!

The first of the new patents, US 9,939,417, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MONITORING AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS” focuses on improving fruit tree analysis and crop predictions and monitoring fruit production, plant growth, and plant vitality. This patent supports AGERpoint’s GroveTracker product which uses LiDAR-based data capture for specific location, as well as phenotypical data such as the canopy diameter, trunk diameter, height, and density of each plant.

The second of the new patents, US 9,983,311, “MODULAR SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCED SENSORS” focuses on the systems and methods for controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard. This patent supports AGERpoint’s YieldTracker product which tracks harvests throughout a field, providing actual yield data row-by-row.

“With these two patents, we are extremely excited about the opportunities to improve our already precise agriculture data collection techniques and associated permanent crop analytics,” said Andrew J. Nash, CEO of AGERpoint. He continued with “Our goal is to place precise actionable data in the hands of all value chain participants (food & beverage industry, growers, researchers, agronomists, insurers, industry associations, etc.) to continue to innovate and enhance decision making processes.”
