“PrecisionHawk addresses a growing, insatiable need for data in one of the most basic and critical industries for human prosperity — agriculture.  Big picture knowledge has the potential to revolutionize virtually any industry, as has been demonstrated in the past.  The space age brought unprecedented weather monitoring and prediction capability to societies on Earth.  The internet’s global connections of communities changed the way the world interacts.  Similarly, UAV technology, and in particular, PrecisionHawk, will change the way we interact with our planet and our planet’s resources forever and for the better.” - Dr. Philip Ferguson
