Molecular Sensing for the Masses

Foundational Technology

We are developing foundational technology that makes use of Nature’s ability to assemble molecules into simple yet elegant complexes, the formation of which can be tapped as a source of information about the environment on a molecular level. SupraSensor Technologies is currently focused on providing in-soil sensors for wireless monitoring of nitrate fertilizers in precision agriculture. These sensors are completely wireless, autonomous and provide real-time information about fertilizer levels at any depth in a growing field. With such minute-to-minute detail, grower’s can resist over-fertilization and save input dollars, while reducing the environmental footprint of their operations.

Field Nutrient Sensor

The “Field Nutrient Sensor” (FNS) approach allows for a snapshot of the current nitrate levels in a field, and works in tandem with current soil moisture probes. Our N-measurement modules are being designed to communicate wirelessly with the existing network, and report nitrate-N on demand (up to 200 times a day) for the duration of the growing season. This autonomous measurement of field-moist soil will avoid the need for expensive and time-consuming soil sample collection, and enables data-guided fertigation.

 

The individual FNS sensors are fully enclosed and carry their own power and data storage.
