NGA Seeks Remote Sensing Tech for Agricultural Delineation Challenge

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is accepting proposals for a new program aimed at developing a system that can visualize agricultural field outlines from satellite sources.

The Agricultural Delineation contest tasks industry to contribute ideas for a remote sensing platform that utilizes satellite imagery to outline large homogenous and heterogeneous fields that are prominent in the sub-Saharan Africa region, NGA said Friday.

The agency said satellite-based remote sensing technology significantly aids plant health observation processes that are crucial in estimating farm yields and tracking agricultural productivity.

NGA will award a total of $15K and select at least one submission as the winner.

“The best submissions will challenge our perspectives and guide us in revolutionizing remote sensing for agriculture,” said Jack Millar, NGA’s Agricultural Delineation challenge owner.

Winners may opt not to transfer intellectual property or property rights for their technologies.

Interested parties may submit their proposals through Nov. 19.
