About us

The Applied Agricultural Remote Sensing Centre (AARSC) is based at the University of New England - one of Australia’s oldest and leading agricultural research organisations.

The centre is led by UNE’s Agricultural Remote Sensing Team, and is part of the university’s broader Precision Agricultural Research Group.

UNE has a well-demonstrated and respected reputation for delivering strong applied remote sensing research outcomes to industry. With both strong agronomic and remote sensing research backgrounds, the team is effective in generating effective technical outcomes, and has the ability to interpret results agronomically, therefore ensuring their relevance and adoptability on farm. The team currently leads or collaborates in remote sensing projects across a dozen agricultural and horticultural industries.

The team also has a proven record in developing multi-industry and multidisciplinary strategies in response to specific industry needs. The demand for these services has escalated with the capacity for remote sensing to develop innovative solutions to national and international agricultural challenges.
