Dynamic exposure compensation

For 2020, TerrAvion is adding dynamic exposure compensation and low light Signal-to-Noise Ratio hardware and software improvements.  This will also allow us to capture high-quality data across a wider range of weather conditions. 

Improving reliability and communication for 2020:

  • New service design which will result in more deliveries and more transparency about when to expect the next delivery.
  • Increase in fleet collection capacity and speed.
  • Conducted external audit of operations, created an improvement action plan that is currently being implemented.
  • New aircraft fleet and pilot organization enabling daily tracker status reporting to clients.
  • Improved aircraft allocation, basing, and maintenance programs.
  • Schedule design is standardized across all regions to weekly attempts on clients' acres regardless of historical weather patterns; that is, long cycles have been eliminated.  This should mean more deliveries for clients when the weather allows.
