PATS is a Delft start-up and part of the YES!Delft and RoboValley eco-systems. We develop Star Wars like drones that catch pest insects right out of the air. The team (5 fte.) works on this disruptive solution for horticulture which helps greenhouse growers to reduce crop losses due to insect pests. Our bat-like drones take care of effective and sustainable elimination of flying pest insects. The system not only monitors but also proactively eliminates flying pest insects. This prevents further spreading of the pest throughout the greenhouse and reduces damages to crops like vegetables, fruits, flowers and plants. The service offered by PATS is focused on relieving the grower from time consuming and repetitive tasks.

Whereas current insect control solutions are of a chemical (e.g insecticides) or biological (e.g. natural predators) nature, PATS is solving this widespread challenge in a technological way, without the use of chemicals. The company is on a mission to shake-up this traditional market with innovative and sustainable technology.
