Intelinair has acquired Aker Technologies, Inc., a digital agriculture company based in Effingham, Illinois (U.S.).

Intelinair provides insights to farmers and ag retailers through its interactive platform AGMRI, via high-resolution aerial imagery from fixed wing airplane, satellite or drones. The company analyzes millions of acres in the U.S. and several other countries from its headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The acquisition of Aker Technologies allows Intelinair to continue to expand in the ag market with additional drone-based digital agronomy tools and complements Intelinair’s portfolio of providing high-resolution imagery and data analytics to manage every field all season long.

“The acquisition of Aker will build on our technology, product offerings and operational capacity in drones,” said Tim Hassinger, CEO and president of Intelinair. “Specifically, the acquisition brings capabilities that will enhance our AGMRI offering to existing customers in this growing season and help us expand our footprint going forward.”

In November 2022, Intelinair and Aker Technologies announced a multi-year distribution agreement to deliver enhanced crop health imagery and analytics to farmers and retailers all season long.

“After working closely with Intelinair for over a year, we saw not only great synergies across our teams, but also how our solutions can enable more value for all of our stakeholders,” said Orlando Saez, CEO and co-founder of Aker Technologies. “Accelerating the adoption of digital agronomy practices is a big win for the industry as a whole.”

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
