Environmental Sensing Systems

Measuring the present. Helping manage the future.

About Us

Environmental Sensing Systems specialises in the acquisition and interpretation of data describing vegetation structure and condition. With over 10 years' experience, we undertake the development of sensing devices and algorithms to improve knowledge and management of natural environments.

Our expertise ranges from direct environmental sensing using ground based instruments to the analysis of remotely sensed data from airborne and satellite platforms. Environmental Sensing Systems is based in Melbourne, Australia. We undertake projects nationally and globally.
