A lot of folks in precision ag will never go back to the old way of farming. And thanks to Slingshot®, you’ll never go back to the old way of precision ag.
Slingshot® delivers — and surpasses — the main promise of precision agriculture: better productivity, greater efficiency, less waste, lower cost, greater certainty and better information through 21st Century technology. What makes Slingshot® so radical is the way it delivers.
1. SLINGSHOT® FIELD HUB
The Slingshot® Field Hub is designed to work with all major cell phone networks in North America and is built to industrial-grade standards — tough enough to handle pretty much any conditions you run it through. The hub serves up high-speed Internet on your field computers, which opens all kinds of new services, security and power you just won’t find anywhere else. With an annual subscription, the hub lets you access Slingshot’s advanced RTK correction signals, or those provided by third-party providers, such as CORS networks.
2. SLINGSHOT® RTK
Whether you are a grower interested in repeatable accuracy for your precision ag applications, or an ag services provider looking to offer additional services to your customer base, Slingshot® RTK is the most cost-effective, reliable and maintenance-friendly solution available. Leveraging survey-grade GPS and GLONASS receivers combined with industry-standard RTK corrections and cellular technology, Slingshot® RTK is able to deliver the most accurate corrections over the largest area with the fewest number of reception issues.
3. SLINGSHOT® ONLINE
No matter how remote the job, Slingshot® keeps vehicle operators connected to the rest of the world via high-speed Internet. That means all kinds of control, power and certainty in near real time via the Web — an industry first. Store all of your field and application data in a secure database that you can access any time, anywhere with a simple Web browser. With your data online in a secure Slingshot® account (that can update in near-real-time), you can track vehicle locations, make on-the-fly changes to work orders like prescription maps, and monitor, collect and analyze data from all your assets at the place and time that works for you. Best of all, Slingshot® Online connects operators to Slingshot’s support team, based right here in North America, without ever leaving the cab. If there’s an issue, we’re there in real time to diagnose , fix or walk that operator through the issue. Suddenly, downtime and work stoppage start to seem like an old, bad joke.
4. SLINGSHOT® API
Slingshot® API is intended for growers, retailers, agronomists and independent software vendors alike to share agronomic data, in a secure, controlled manner. What this means to the grower is the ability to utilize any software program of their choice to upload/download agronomic data from the tractor to the office using Slingshot®. Slingshot® is rendering USB hard drives or compact flash cards a relic of the past.
5. SLINGSHOT® + RAVEN HARDWARE
