• Using space based sensors VanderSat sees what cannot be seen.

    VanderSat is a leading global provider of commercial high‑resolution soil moisture data, products and services.

    Using microwaves we are able to see through clouds and fog, so 'daily observations' really means daily.

    Don't let a cloudy day mess up your day

     

    Organisations across the globe are using our insights. From NASA and ESA to farmers, governments and universities.

     

    We built our own machine learning with the world's top institutions and know how water influences the world's natural cycles.

     

     

  • Why VanderSat?

    Whether you operate regionally, nationally or globally. VanderSat provides the highest resolution, cost-effective and information-rich soil moisture data in the world. With daily observations you can make better, more informed decisions at any scale - whether you are monitoring crops, predicting the weather, performing predictive analysis, or preventing forest fires. We deliver key input at an unprecedented scale.

    Scientific recognition:

    > 2500 organisations are already using our satellite based soil moisture data

    Unprecedented resolution:

    VanderSat's proprietary method provides global NRT soil moisture data.

    No models or assumptions:

    VanderSat provides daily satellite observations with actionable results.

    Using microwaves we are able to see through clouds and fog, so 'daily observations' really means daily.

    Direct access to super computing facilities and infrastructure, crucial for satellite data processing and analytics

    Putting things in perspective is key. We have a history of 38 years of satellite observed soil moisture data.

  • No models or assumptions; VanderSat provides daily satellite observations with actionable results.

    A 62.500 times leap forward moving from 25x25 kilometers to 100x100 meters resolution

  • Meet the Team

    Our team has over 40 years' experience of scientific remote sensing.

    VanderSat’s proprietary methodology is taking advantage of data from a combination of satellites (multi-sensor) as well as different kinds of data (multi-frequency). This methodology combined with specifically designed algorithms is far beyond the current state-of-the art, even in the academic arena.
