Intelinair to Acquire Aker Technologies

INDIANAPOLIS and EFFINGHAM, Ill., April 04, 2023 – Today, Intelinair has announced its acquisition of Aker Technologies, Inc., a leading digital agriculture company based in Effingham, Ill. 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.”


In December 2022, Aker was named winner of the 2022 Producer-Led Innovation Challenge by AgriNovus of Indiana. Presented and defined by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and the Indiana Soybean Alliance, the Producer-Led Innovation Challenge asked innovators to create a tech solution to improve on-farm data accuracy that could lead to reducing the cost of operating capital and improving net farm income. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


About Intelinair

Intelinair elevates agronomic management decisions by providing insights all season long to farmers and ag retailers through its easy-to-use interactive platform AGMRI. High resolution aerial imagery from fixed wing airplane, satellite, or drones provides whole field views increasing efficiency by prioritizing fields and offering assurance that fields are monitored and reviewed for timely decision making and identifying sustainability opportunities. Intelinair analyzes millions of acres in the U.S. and several other countries from its headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. Take action through informed management decisions at


About Aker Technologies

Aker’s mission is to inspire and impact agriculture by providing accessible technology that adds value in a true partnership with growers. Aker, founded in 2016, focuses on how to make farm managers’ lives easier by providing trusted and timely answers to plan and manage every field. Aker’s digital agronomy tools provide complete in-season coverage while being simple to integrate into your farm operation. Growers can use Aker to assess stand counts early in the season to baseline yield potential while quickly addressing replanting needs; to prioritize scouting or treatment action based on crop performance expectations and weather; and to discover and quantify in-season stress earlier and in less time to optimize treatment.

Yield Forecast

Understand where your corn yield is based on the current state of the crop. As the season unfolds, see how it is having an impact on your final yield.

Yield Loss

Powered by years of Nitrogen research at the University of Missouri, our corn Yield Loss analytic, powered by NVision Ag, gives insight into potential yield loss due to Nitrogen deficiency. Optional analytic for nitrogen management.

Variable Dry Down

variable dry down

Understand which fields and which areas of the field are drying down to help plan your harvest logistics.

Underperforming Area

low crop health

Not all areas of your fields perform the same and low NDVI doesn’t necessarily mean there is anything you can do to fix it this year. Underperforming Area alerts you to the fields and areas of the fields that are performing below their historical potential. This will allow you to quickly find those fields and areas and make adjustments to get them back on target and protect yield.

Nutrient Deficiency

nutrient deficiency

As the crop grows, it can tell us more of what is wrong with it. This analytic finds the fields and areas of the fields where there is a nutrient deficiency so that issues can be addressed before grain fill.

Disease Stress

disease risk

In conjunction with the Thermal Stress, Disease Stress alert takes into account weather information to more precisely indicate the type of stress impacting the crop.

Thermal Stress

thermal risk

Using our thermal imagery, AGMRI can detect elevated heat patterns of the crop that indicate crop stress.

Crop Health

Crop Health

Get a complete view of your farms and fields and identify where yield potential is ranked highest to the lowest.

Weed Map & Weed Escape

weed escape

Know what fields and areas of the fields have weeds. With machine integration or based on planting date, be alerted to what fields have weeds that may be impacting yield.

Historical Field Performance

AGMRI creates 5 performance zones in each field based on the historical average of those zones. This data is used to compare the current season to help understand where you are underperforming from the zone potential.

Low Emergence

low emergence

Notification of what fields and areas of the field have poor emergence.

Stand Assessment

strand assessment

AGMRI detects the established rows and uses computer vision and machine learning to determine the best segment of row and compares the rest of the field to that segment to give you a relative map. If machine data is integrated, a stand population map is returned.
