Raven Industries, Inc. introduced new advances in precision agriculture technology including the new Viper 4 field computer as well as other ag technology during the eleventh annual Raven Innovation Summit held June 4-5. Viper 4 will improve how customers manage critical machine functions, but more importantly, enhance the way data collected in the field is managed and utilized.
The Viper 4 field computer features a 12.1-inch responsive touchscreen and sleek design with a rugged magnesium casing. A customizable user interface utilizing new Raven Operating Software allows users to set up machine profiles, user profiles and grower-farm-field information, expediting job start-up and streamlining information management functionality.
"Data management is critical to our customers' success. Viper 4 hardware, software and third-party applications will operate separate from each other, providing an open platform for data management with our Slingshot API platform and agX compatibility," said Matt Burkhart, vice president and general manager for Raven's Applied Technology Division.

In addition to the upcoming release of the Viper 4, Raven also announced a new partnership with AMW Machine Control, a leader in water management solutions, to further enhance its full spectrum of precision ag solutions to grow more food on less land.
Raven also released the industry's first, patent pending, multi-hybrid planter control solution. This new multi-hybrid system is an enhancement to Raven's OmniRow advanced planter control solution, and when combined with variable rate seeding, it will help increase yield potential and profitability.
The Innovation Summit is an annual meeting hosted by Raven, that brings together key customers, dealers, OEMs, and media partners from across the globe to collaborate on how technology and innovation can help solve the great challenge of feeding the world.
