Global Institute for Food Security

By 2050, there will be approximately 9.6 billion people living on the planet. Over the next 30 years, developed nations like Canada will need to produce about 70% more food, and developing nations in Africa and South Asia will need to double or even triple their food production to feed their people.

This will only be accomplished through ingenuity and innovation. The Global Institute for Food Security (GIFS) is creating technologies that will have commercial utility in advanced agricultural nations and the developing world alike.

Our vision is to create ingenious science that delivers sustainable food security for the world.

Our mission is to help feed the world through transformative innovations in agriculture and food production that will benefit Saskatchewan’s economic, social and environmental well being and which will empower developing countries to achieve local food security.

ASD, a Malvern Panalytical brand, is a global leader in remote sensing. ASD’s rugged, portable FieldSpec® line of spectroradiometers rapidly collect high-quality spectra in the field. Application use examples include ground truthing, calibrating and validating satellite and airborne image data used to characterize vegetation, minerals and other materials on the surface of the Earth.

PCI Geomatics, founded in 1982, is the world leader in geo-imaging products and solutions. PCI Geomatics has set the standard in remote sensing and image processing tools offering customized solutions to the geomatics community in over 135 countries. www.pcigeomatics.com

horoma AI offers deep learning solutions to assist and automate the extraction of information from aerial and satellite images—characteristics such as buildings, roads, water systems, ice, and the inventory of urban and backcountry forests. horoma works in partnership with IVADO and the Montreal Institute of Learning Algorithms (MILA).

Canadian Space Agency

Since its creation in 1989, the Canadian Space Agency has been driving Canada’s use and exploration of space; developing space assets, applications and services; and enabling space capacity while meeting the nation’s strategic priorities and growing need for scientific knowledge, innovation and information.
