On Wednesday 20 November 2019, The Satellite Terminals Working Group (STWG), organised by Sven Knowles of KTN, chaired by Simon Watts of Avanti on behalf of the STWG, and hosted by Les Hurdiss of Agri-EPI Centre, held a successful meeting of Satcom (Satellite Communications) and Agriculture professionals to discuss and identify the technology needs, challenges and possible solutions in for Satcoms in Agri-tech systems.

With rapid innovation among antenna and terminal technologies, Satcom services are becoming accessible to a much wider range of users. They can provide communications and data services to remote locations, they are more easily installed, and can be integrated directly into equipment.

How Satellite Terminals can Best Serve the Agri Sector - Kevin Maher - Sigfox: How LPWAN could compliment traditional satellite services

  1. 1. How LPWAN Can Compliment Traditional Satellite Services 20th November 2019 Kevin Maher kevin.maher@sigfox.com
  2. 2. IoT Wireless Technology Landscape 802.11ah PAN WANLAN 2G 3G 4G LPWA requirements Range Energy & Cost efficiency Public Connectivity Personal & private networks § High density of objects § Reduced H/W cost § Reduced connectivity cost § Low data rates § Constrained latency
  3. 3. In 2010 we launched Sigfox to connect any everyday object to the internet from anywhere in the world.
  4. 4. Sigfox: Global 0G network Low power to provide autonomy Global to be used everywhere Low cost to address everything Easy to use and adopted quickly Global SLA with 99% availability of the SIGFOX Communication Services Secure by Design
  5. 5. Our network footprint is growing at an exponential pace
  6. 6. We want to connect every objects to get them digitalized in the cloud and cover every square meter of the planet Today 65 countries End 2019 70 countries 2020 ELO Constellation: Ubiquitous global coverage
  7. 7. Geo Satellites: • Sigfox Base Station connected to Geo Satellite. • Backhauling used to cover remote areas where there area lots of objects connect, no Fiber/ADSL/Mobile access eg livestock management, Oil & Gas, Mining… Leo Satellite: • To connect the object directly to the satellite. • Container Tracking, Boat tracking, Car tracking… 2 ways to use Satellite
  8. 8. Smart Agriculture 8 Optimization of crop production with minimum cost spending § Recording of agronomical activity § Mapped out sowing plans § Regulated substance compliance § Stock management § Reporting § Weather Forecast and weather radar data Smart Agriculture solution from CleverFarm integrates farm management platform, IoT sensors, remote field scouting with precision farming and asset management. It includes meteorological station, crop sensors, soil sensors, monitoring conditions in grain stocks and monitoring of animal welfare Used by many farmes in Europe, being tested in Africa and Latam Challenge BenefitsSolution
  9. 9. Customer story: irrigation management Optimize the energy and water usage from irrigation pumps. 9 The solution combines several features: • Monitoring of the soil moisture and water levels • Decision making software based on grid condition and moisture data, • Activating the pump. • Reduced energy and water consumption for irrigation, • Remote control and reporting of the system status and usage, • Optimized growth of crop, generating add’al revenues, Challenges Solutions Benefits
  10. 10. Remote Signals Soil Temperature Monitoring 10 Having accurate knowledge of soil condition at any given time is very important to farmers and food producers. For example deciding when to sow, when to spread artificial (bagged) fertilizer, when to spread slurry(farmyard manure), whether pH is correction is necessary, whether artificial irrigation is necessary, etc. Easy to Install. Data available on mobile (iOS & Android) and web apps. Collects data every 3 hours. AA Battery powered - 3 years life. • Remote Signals precision farming platform. • Low cost soil monitoring sensors on every farm. • Insights presented on mobile and web apps where farmers can more precisely capture key data relating to their farm and use this to optimally plan their work schedules. Challenge BenefitsSolution Commerci al
  11. 11. Livestock Management CONFIDENTIAL 11 Improve efficiency and safety in farming § Affordable § Long battery life § Gives a real-time visibility on the livestock location § Reduces the number of diseases by accidents, calving, thefts or attacks by other animals § Cut-off operating costs Digitanimal is a location system for livestock farms. It offers location, monitoring and traceability capabilities, detecting anomalies due to temperature, activity, behavior and calving. Digitanimal increases farm profitability by detecting in calving periods; by reducing production costs through a losses cut-off and by improving animals’ welfare through constant monitoring. It sends alerts (animal outside the farm, abnormal activity, weather alerts, etc.) to the farmers. Challenge BenefitsSolution Alternative partners for this application
  12. 12. Smart irrigation to improve Kiwi production CONFIDENTIAL 12 Reduce the amount of water resources to grow Kiwi § Low installation costs § Low maintenance costs § Small OpEx § Help farmers with decisions and alerts Kiwifruit is one of the most sensitive fruits in terms of quality which is given by size, sweetness and dry matter. it is essential for farmers to develop a good irrigation strategy to attain marketable products and to reduce product losses Challenge BenefitsSolution Solution providers:
  13. 13. Soil & Weather Monitoring by Greencityzen (FR) • Reduce logistic costs from 20 to 30% • Avoid extra costs of dry runs and emergency deliveries • Reduce monitoring costs and overall management cost • Improve quality of service: avoid out of stock issues • Optimize stock costs • Reduce CO2 footprint HummmBox Soil is a solution including: • Device “as a service”: level monitoring sensor with soil moisture and temperature sensors. Optional air temperature, humidity, CO2 and rain gauge sensors. • Software “as a service”: IoT platform + Apps (dashboard and fleet management features) Problem solved BenefitsSolution Avoid round trips to check soil humidity 13
  14. 14. • Reduce logistic costs by 30% • Avoid extra costs of dry runs and emergency deliveries • Reduce monitoring costs and overall management cost • Improve quality of service: avoid out of stock issues • Optimize stock costs Tank level monitoring by Dunraven Systems Device monitors the tank levels thanks to an ultrasonic sensor. Automatically notifies RMS Delta cloud monitoring system. RMS Delta receives information. Tank top up is arranged and delivered before the tank runs dry. Problem solved BenefitsSolution Monitor efficiently storage tank levels 14
  15. 15. Electronic scale for remotely monitoring hives (transmits the weight, the temperature and autonomy of the system). Harvest at the right time or to treat urgent issues such as bringing supplies in case of famine. Platform: - Weight & Temperature on a graphical chart - Production alert: alert for an abnormal variance (up or down) in weight (email or SMS Problem solved Assess the status of a bee colony by permanently analysing the apiary’s weight and temperature. BenefitsSolution • Beekeepers using the solution reduce their travel costs by about 30% • Productivity is greater as the beekeeper can better plan his/her work. • Assess the status of the beehive in real time Connected beehive by Optibee (FR) 15
