OPGAL Optronics Industries Ltd. Key Developments

Evogene, Elbit Systems, Hazera Seeds, Opgal Optronic Industries, Rahan Meristem, Sensilize, the Volcani Center of the Agricultural Research Organization, Ben-Gurion University, the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and the University of Haifa to Participate in Israeli Consortium to Develop Phenotyping Tools and Systems for Precision Agriculture

Evogene Ltd. announced its participation in a three-year Israel Innovation Authority sponsored Phenomics Consortium to develop tools and systems for precision agriculture and innovative development of agriculture products. In addition to Evogene, the Phenomics Consortium consists of Elbit Systems, Hazera Seeds, Opgal Optronic Industries, Rahan Meristem, Sensilize, the Volcani Center of the Agricultural Research Organization, Ben-Gurion University, the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and the University of Haifa. The goal of the consortium is to develop plant phenotyping technologies, including the generation of comprehensive agricultural ‘Big-Data’ and the development of artificial intelligence algorithms for real time analysis of phenotypic data. The analysis of this data is expected to assist farmers in managing their crop season more efficiently thereby improving yield per acre. IP developed within the framework of the consortium (not including background IP) will be available for use by each of the consortium members. It is expected that technologies and comprehensive data to be developed by the consortium will potentially be transformative for precision agriculture plant treatment solutions, while at the same time providing new and advanced capabilities for all science based research and development of agricultural products. The consortium is expected to span over three years, subject to both re-approval each year and an option to be extended to five years. The grant approved for the consortium for calendar year 2018 is $5 million, of which $1.4 million to Evogene.

Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd Launches Opgal Eye-Q™, Thermal Imaging Redefined

Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd. announced Opgal Eye-Q™, an innovative approach to image processing that sets new standards for thermal image quality. Based on many years of algorithmic research and field experience, Opgal Eye-Q™ delivers a high-quality thermal image so clear, that even the finest details are visible. Opgal Eye-Q™ is readily available for an array of applications, from Surveillance - where small objects such as drones are detected - through Security, where important target details previously undiscernible are now clearly visible - to Optical Gas Imaging, where gas leaks are easily noted in the air. The unique image processing methods of Opgal EYE-Q™ make this technology consistently better than existing thermal imaging at all target temperatures, no matter the range or temperature differences and fluctuations. Recent advances in thermal technology have made it the first choice for day and night surveillance due to its zero light, all weather capabilities. The constant evolution of customer needs has brought with it a higher demand for image quality as good as, or better than that of CCD color daylight cameras. Opgal EYE-Q™ is already built into the new Sii™ OP dual channel thermal camera system and is also available as an optional feature with several other Opgal systems.
