About Us


We create data analytics tools to help farmers optimise returns while optimising resources.

We have a long and distinguished heritage, over 100 years, of extracting knowledge from data, particularly for aerospace, space and defence customers to ensure they make effective mission critical decisions.

Until now NDVI was the only recognised tool to provide relative insights into overall crop health. We believe with our data mining and expertise we can go deeper. We have been investing in R&D since 2012 in order to identify spectral nutrient signatures to remotely determine crop uptake of specific key nutrients. We provide absolute values not relative.

We work with the farming community to create our Absolute Sense apps. By providing detailed information on nutrient distribution this also helps customers comply with environmental legislation.

Absolute Sense – environmentally aware, operationally effective and profit enhancing. We believe that is a good recipe.


We’ve been solving complex challenges for over 100 years.

Leonardo is a global high-tech company and one of the key players in Aerospace, Defence and Security.

From RAF Spitfire gun sights to the most advanced radar systems on Typhoon jets, our scientists and engineers love making sense of complex data and finding bespoke solutions.

With the support of our parent company, we’ve turned our attention to agriculture to help transform operational effectiveness and improve yields.

With more than 44,000 staff worldwide, we’re well placed to work with the global agricultural community to provide decision support with real benefits.

Since 2013 we’ve been developing algorithms for wheat to help farmers operate more efficiently.

Headquartered in Italy, Leonardo has offices and industrial plants present in 180 sites worldwide.

Our apps have clear objectives:

Lower Input Costs + Higher Yields = Optimum Profit.
