What is the SWAT BOX?

SWAT BOX is a developed autonomous mapping system. The system logs soil electrical conductivity (EC) and elevation data if an RTK GPS system is made available. It can be mounted to trucks, all terrain vehicles, and a variety of Ag equipment and only requires 12 Volts for operation. We use SWAT BOX to map fields for customers and it is also available for sale to Precision Ag service providers who wish to offer SWAT MAPS variable rate services to their customers.
