IntelinAir’s founder Naira Hovakimyan was recognized for her success and innovation in a special section of MechSE Illinois, called “Robotics in MechSE.” In 2016, IntelinAir won the AgFunder Innovation Award and was also listed as one of five agriculture technology companies for the “Most Innovative U.S. Pre-Series A Startups.”
IntelinAir is an aerial imagery analytics company that uses drones to develop ground-breaking algorithims and novel solutions to farming challenges. The challenges that farmers often face are weather-related issues, insects, and nutrient damage on plants. All these challenges, if not dealt with properly, can lead monetary losses for the farmers.
IntelinAir has produced many breakthroughs in the ag-tech field. One of these breakthroughs include its product, AG-MRI, which is a field health monitoring system that allows farmers to proactively oversee how their crops are doing.
According to Hovakimyan, going forward, IntelinAir will continue working toward the efforts of helping farmers advance their ability to identify the causes of crop damage and combine data further with data anaylsis.
IntelinAir is paving the path in the digital agriculture revolution. “We are building the industry, and we are one of the leaders. I want our goal as a Midwestern agriculture company to be of benefit to the state and its economy” said Hovakimyan.
