Tim began his career optimizing supply chains and factory operations for SAP. At Swift, he is driven to provide the same level of automation and data analysis to agriculture as he encountered in industrial automation.

Location, Location, Location: Democratizing High Accuracy RTK GPS in Precision Ag

High Accuracy RTK GPS has long been a mainstay in precision agriculture. Until now, RTK has been limited to the high-end applications on the farm. Through a novel approach to RTK, Swift Navigation is providing high accuracy positioning to a range of new applications in precision agriculture, and brining down the cost of autosteer for an increasingly automated farm. With low cost, high accuracy GPS, Swift is putting more precision in precision agriculture.

Biography :
Jason Tatge has been a driving entrepreneurial force behind many leading internet Ag-Tech companies over the last 15 years. He was named Pipelines Innovator of the Year in 2009 and now serves as the Pipeline Member President in addition to being a Founder/CEO and President of Farmobile. Farmobile is his third startup in Agriculture. His previous company, Farms Technology, created an electronic marketplace where farmers could sell grain on mobile devices in real-time and was purchased by DuPont/Pioneer in December of 2012. Jason's diverse background in agriculture includes: commodity trading and risk management, mobile technology development, intellectual property creation, automated hedging platform design and most recently hardware design, development and deployment. Jason firmly believes that Farmobile customers will gain knowledge more quickly by simplifying and facilitating machine data collection, peer-to-peer information sharing with other Farmobile customers and select channel partners. Additionally, Farmobile customers have an opportunity to monetize their data on the data exchange. If a farmer chooses to sell their data, profits will be split 50/50 between the farmer and Farmobile thus creating complete customer alignment.
