Cautus Geo is developing a new system for advanced water quality monitoring!


Earlier this year, Cautus Geo together with 4 partners received support from the European Union’s Eureka project for innovation and development amongst European partners. On September 1st, the project “Continuous pesticide sensing in the environment” (CoPs) commenced.

The goal of this project is to develop a sensor and measurement system to automatically and continuously measure a wide range of pesticides and provide real-time reporting of the types of pesticides present and their respective concentrations. The system will be suitable for use in both groundwater wells and surface water, and will send measurements via cellular telemetry to a central server, which will publish the data to a website.

This measurement system will change the way monitoring of pesticides is performed throughout the world and will contribute to both increased security for drinking water supplies and a cost savings for those who manage such water sources.

CoPs is a cooperation between 5 partners and consists of Cautus Geo, IPM, PalmSens, DFM (Danish National Metrology Institute) and DTU Nanotech (Technical University of Denmark – Institute for Micro- and Nanotechnology).

Additional information on the project can be found on the Eurostars-Eureka website (
