Raptor Maps, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based developer of a drone-enabled technology platform for agriculture, received an investment from Airware’s Commercial Drone Fund.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
Led by Nikhil Vadhavkar, CEO, Raptor Maps provides farmers with a system featuring drones, tractor-mounted sensors and software to map, analyze and measure the quality of crops at critical times during the growing season to make more informed decisions and reduce unnecessary cost and labor.
The solution allows farmers experimenting with new chemicals, fertilizer regimens, seed types, and techniques, to perform statistical analysis for A/B testing to compare and optimize these various inputs for fruits and vegetables.
The company is currently developing a software tool that works for all crops.
