On The Flipside With Aerobotics


Cape Town start-up, Aerobotics, provides farmers around the world


With world-leading pest and disease management systems for tree crop protection using drone and satellite data. Our On The Flipside host, Nadia Hearn  CFO & COO of Aerobotics, Tim Willis.

Farming is a risky business with pests and disease often reducing a farmer’s yields. Aerobotics’ software, Aeroview, empowers tree crop farmers to identify early stage problems in their orchards.

Used in conjunction with the Aerobotics’ Aeroview Scout App on their smartphone, farmers are able to locate problem areas on a tree-by-tree basis. Achieving success for more than 17 million trees to-date, Aerobotics is setting the standard for tree crop analytics globally and innovating the agricultural processes as we know them.

Aerobotics will hold the first of five free events dedicated to growing the drone pilot industry in South Africa. AeroCon will be a “one-stop-shop” for people wanting to build their own drone piloting business and will feature a range of speakers and activities to help aspiring drone pilots navigate the necessary licensing and certification requirements. Aerobotics has taken on this initiative to merge commercial interests with its goal of contributing to job creation in South Africa.

After the first AeroCon event in Cape Town on 7 February, there will be four more: 12 February in Johannesburg, 13 February in Kimberley, 20 February in Port Elizabeth and 21 February in Durban. Those interested in attending AeroCon Cape Town can register for free on the EventBrite website. Aerobotics is also currently exploring partnerships in the United States to develop similar events that will contribute to growing the network of drone pilots by helping those interested obtain the necessary information and licensing to beginning a career.
