ES@S has developed expertise in the application and processing of data from many environmental sensing systems. These systems consist of a range of  'off-the-shelf' and bespoke items of equipment which together enable us to monitor Earth processes and response.

ES@S are using the latest cutting-edge aerial and surface water autonomous platforms from which to deploy our sensors. We work with colleagues from the Autonomous Systems group at the University of Southampton to develop bespoke platforms for unique environmental systems deployments.

ES@S is home to a broad range of state of the art environmental sensors, ranging from velocity probes, to laser scanners and ground penetrating radar sensors. We deploy these sensors from a range of platforms, often as an array to measure multiple parameters at once.
