About Us

Who We Are

Based on NASA technology, using highly specialized aerial-based sensors, and a cloud-based image processing service SkySquirrel Technologies is transforming the way growers monitor crop health.

Named one of Canada’s most innovative tech companies by the Canadian Innovation Exchange, we help agricultural operators monitor the health of their crop in real-time, enabling more responsive crop management, reducing costs, decreasing inputs, and minimizing environmental impact while improving crop yields.

SkySquirrel has an exclusive partnership with VineView, Scientific Aerial Imaging, Inc., leading provider of remote sensing services to grape growers in California since 2002.
