Sensoterra, a pioneering leader in the realm of wireless soil moisture sensors, has proudly announced its affiliation with the Inmarsat Application and Solution Provider (ASP) Programme, a thriving ecosystem catering to software, hardware, and solution providers, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the commercial land sectors. By becoming an ASP member, Sensoterra secures access to Inmarsat’s extensive L-band satellite connectivity network, known as ELERA, allowing it to extend the reach of its solutions to new industries and global locations.

Headquartered in Utrecht and currently operational in over 30 countries, Sensoterra is on a mission to revolutionize global water management by delivering intricate insights into soil moisture. Its straightforward, robust, and cost-effective wireless soil moisture sensors have produced a staggering 60 million global data points. These smart sensors facilitate data-driven decision-making in land management, fostering tangible improvements in productivity and advancing the cause of sustainability.

The approach adopted by Sensoterra revolves around the fusion of top-notch, user-friendly sensors with an open-API platform, granting customers the ability to craft bespoke water management solutions tailored to their specific requirements. These innovative sensors play a pivotal role in conserving water, boosting crop yields, averting the harmful consequences of drought, and enhancing the efficient utilization of land and natural resources. Versatile enough to accommodate 14 different types of soil moisture conditions encountered across the globe, the sensors and API platform collectively create a finely woven “sensor ecosystem.”

Mike Carter, President of Enterprise at Inmarsat, has expressed his delight in welcoming Sensoterra into the ASP programme, underscoring their enthusiasm to support the company’s ambitious expansion objectives. He emphasizes that forward-thinking solution providers like Sensoterra are harnessing cutting-edge technology to address some of the most pressing global challenges.
