Real-time rural water monitoring via satellite

Inmarsat has signed an agreement with Australian firms Farmbot Monitoring Solutions, a provider of agricultural IoT solutions, and Pivotel, a provider of mobile satellite services, to enable farmers to remotely monitor water tanks, dams and reservoirs and activate pumps and other machinery in real time.

Australia has more than 430,000 rural water tanks and more than 1,000,000 dams, reservoirs and other bodies of water, few of which are monitored in real time.

The alliance will enable farmers to remotely monitor their water storage facilities and operate pumps, providing cost savings, a reduction in unnecessary travel and a more sustainable approach to water management.

The Farmbot platform will also gain the ability to activate machinery, cameras, gates and a wide variety of other equipment.

The solution will employ Inmarsat’s IsatData Pro two-way messaging service.
