About us

Of all the water on our planet, only 3% is fresh water. More than two thirds of this amount is not available because it is locked up in ice caps and glaciers. Which means that less than 1% of all water on earth is available for human use and shortage of – or too much – water is leading to problems everywhere. This better be managed well, but if it can’t be measured, it can’t be managed. It is our mission to enable water management platforms and solutions worldwide. We help by ‘Making Sense of Water’ . We produce simple, robust and low-cost wireless soil moisture sensors which are easy to deploy and built to integrate.
