Missouri will be seeing exciting new advancements in agriculture technologies. Wyld Networks, a UK tech company who specializes in wireless connectivity for the internet of things (IoT), will base their USA operations in Missouri. The company is developing satellite connectivity for US agriculture and supply chain sectors.
Representatives of the company met with Governor Mike Parsons who welcomed them with open arms saying, “It was a privilege to meet with the company during our trade mission to the United Kingdom, and we’re confident Wyld Networks’ strengths in agtech and geospatial technology are a great fit for our state. With continued innovative advances in agriculture, Missouri is supporting high-tech companies as they grow here, creating jobs and making investments that strengthen our economy.”
Data collection from IoT sensors in remote locations with little infrastructure and low power access is very difficult and proves to be a key challenge for agricultural data collection. Wyld is deploying a “sensor to satellite” solution for Bayer in Missouri. They are also working with companies such as Eutelsat, Senet and TrakAssure to help with supply chain management and monitoring.
“I had the honor of meeting Wyld Networks when they visited Missouri in 2020 as part of the Agri-TechE mission,” said Alan Gogbashian, UK Consul General to the Midwest. “And that relationship was built throughout the pandemic via Zoom and other means, culminating in additional meetings during the recent mission to the UK by Missouri’s Governor. We are thrilled that this great British company is expanding to the US, and choosing to set up in one of the strongest agritech ecosystems in the USA”
