There Are No Boundaries When Enthusiasm And Excitement Are Applied To The Task At Hand

Our Business:



Embrace Sustainability

Save money, time, and your crop

Leading Green Technology


At the 2016 Irrigation Association’s Annual Meeting and Trade Show, the Hawk-Eye™ System concept was judged to be a Home Run by a panel of irrigation experts.

In 2018 it is introduced to the turf industry.

Hawk-Eye™ Systems

Using Hawk-Eye & EYAS Remote Sensing Camera Sets

Why it works, How it works, See it at work


Hawk-Eye & EYAS measures the canopy color and temperature.

You see the image data.

Hawk-Eye computes critical indices and reports it to you.


It gives plants a voice you will understand!


Tell it what you want to know. It alerts the critical information to mobile devices when those parameters are met.


Basis for Success:
The agronomic feasibility of measuring a crop’s canopy to determine health and water status is rooted in research and experimentation since Dr. Ray D. Jackson started using thermography in 1981.  Since then, a number or researchers including Karcher , Ben Gal , and Costa have shown its value.


Itri Corporation’s Hawk-Eye™ is the first to put academic studies into an affordable system for operational use.


Hawk-Eye™ and EYAS Systems are built to address your needs to target resources (time and money)

and keep player and spectator experiences at the highest level.
