Anastasia Volkova is an aeronautical engineer completing her PhD in autonomous drone navigation. She has experience ranging from projects with the NASA robots onboard International Space Station to managing a 370-person team for UEFA. Anastasia is a 2017 Amelia Earhart Fellow recognised for her commitment to advancing the application of aerospace engineering. Her passion for the real-world application has found expression in the startup FluroSat, which after closing the seed round of funding is actively expanding across Australia and into the US commodity crop market. Most recently Anastasia has been named 2018 Women Creating Change by NSW/ACT Young Achiever Award, which her colleagues promptly nicknamed “Chief Disrupter”.
Flurosat is a Sydney-based crop health monitoring startup providing decision support to cotton and grain agronomists and growers.
FluroSat offers agronomists and farmers access to decision support system, FluroViewer, which has been developed in collaboration with CSIRO and Australia’s leading agronomists to simplify the adoption of precision agriculture technologies. FluroViewer platform offers such features as nutrient stress quantification, field management zone definition, historic and in-season trend analysis of multispectral imagery taken from drones, planes and satellites, advanced stress detection with hyperspectral imagery and yield correlations.
The flagship product of FluroSat, Nitrogen map, allows to diagnose crop nutrient status with minimal optimised sampling and to use the derived field-size nitrogen map for fertiliser applications, and improved irrigation decisions. This August, FluroSat openly launches its platform to Australian cotton growers.
If you are a progressive agronomist or grower, come speak to us about extracting most out of your historic data and optimising crop management in the upcoming season.
