How it works?

The Orion Data Network is a system of active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and GPS technologies combined with tags, gateways and IoT-enabled sensors. The covert, weatherproof tags attach to vehicles, equipment, gates, fencing and walls, with specially designed collars and boluses for livestock. The gateway plugs into your farmhouse for network coverage of around 10km, giving you real-time alerts on the location and security of your farm assets, even in the most remote parts of your farm. Orion is a highly-secure network that is virtually impenetrable by hackers.

Real-time visibility and management come together in the Orion Network.

Transform your agricultural management.
