Our mission is to provide high quality geo-information services and IT solutions based on satellite data. For our clients we offer a comprehensive and long-term support in developing their activities.
SAR satellite data in precision agriculture
After this year’s rape and cereal harvest we assessed the accuracy of our algorithms to estimate the size and spatial distribution of crops using Sentinel-1 radar imagery. The resulting yield maps turned out to be very similar to the maps based on data recorded by harvesters in selected farms in the Polish regions of Pomerania and Mazovia.
We have embraced SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) imagery because it is resistant to the influence of changing weather conditions, which is a limiting factor for the use of Earth Observation in agriculture. The next step will be to use radar data when creating application maps for mineral fertilizers in Fertisat service, and thus be able to provide the service to our clients independently of cloud cover.
We invite everyone interested in this innovative solution to contact us and we also encourage farmers to use the Fertisat service.
New ESA project: remote monitoring of maize crop
Today we started a new ESA project entitled “EO-based enhancement of maize production for the needs of agri-food and renewable energy industries”. We will use satellite and weather data as well as functions of our FertiSat service to assess the condition of maize crop in Poland (already approx. 1.8 million ha), forecast harvest time, and to estimate the size and quality of corn production. Such information is of interest to maize growers, managers in food and feed industry, and to operators of agricultural biogas plants. During the current season and the next season the service will be developed and tested before incorporation as a new module into the FertiSat service.
FertiSat service promotion for customers of Chemirol
Wasat has recently become a business partner of PUH “Chemirol” whose customers, after purchasing selected products, receive a voucher enabling them to use our FertiSat.com service. Farmers gain access to current satellite field monitoring and to the archive of satellite imagery.
PUH “Chemirol” is the largest distributor of means of agricultural production on the Polish market. The company’s customer advisers reach farmers all over the country on a daily basis and are increasingly present on other Central European markets. The company offers modern solutions in the field of plant protection, foliar fertilization and biostimulation, a wide range of varieties of cereals, rape and maize, as well as mineral fertilizers.
The satellite monitoring in FertiSat.com service helps farmers to control the condition of their plantations, to select means of production offered by Chemirol and to evaluate the effectiveness of their use.
New Year 2021
The difficult year 2020 has finally passed. All in all, it was quite a successful period for our company. We operate in a field of satellite remote sensing, where orbit-based sensors collect data that we process in the computing cloud and we contact our clients mainly via the Internet. Earth Observation has proven to be one of pandemic-resistant sectors of the economy. For example, many Polish farmers became customers of our Fertisat service, and Jupyteo was used by remote sensing experts from several dozen countries.
Presence at fairs and conferences was impossible for almost the entire last year. We hope that in 2021 we will exhibit at some of the events and will meet face-to-face with clients as well as business and research partners. New agriculture and remote sensing specialists joined our team, but we are still looking for talented employees who will help strengthen the position of Wasat on the domestic market and expand our services outside Poland.
Many areas of human activity, with agriculture on top, require reliable, precise and up-to-date information based on satellite imagery. This year, we plan to significantly enhance our offer in order to attract new customers and improve their satisfaction.
Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year 2021!

Remote Sensing Department Manager
Dominik graduated in geography from University in Lublin and completed postgraduate studies in remote sensing and GIS at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw. As a GIS expert he worked for several years in companies and public institutions in Poland. Since 2011 Dominik has been leading satellite imagery processing and analysis in Wasat, with a focus on agriculture, archaeology and environmental protection.
Navigation and Geoinformation Department Manager
Daniel holds degrees in IT and geodesy from the University of Olsztyn where he received a governmental award for his Master thesis. He was employed as an geoinformation expert in companies in Poland and in Ireland. Since 2010 Daniel has been leading software development projects in Wasat. He is an expert in satellite data management, mobile mapping, GNSS and indoor navigation.
Remote Sensing Department
Department’s staff develops methods and algorithms that form the backbone of services offered to the agricultural and environmental protection sectors and to archaeologists. The team acquires advanced knowledge and technical skills during implementation of R&D projects, and through contacts with experts from the European Space Agency. This results in a high-quality work as well as in scientific publications and conference presentations.
The Department creates new methods of searching, processing and distribution of satellite data. It also develops mobile mapping applications and solutions for visualisation of spatial information. The tasks are implemented using modern and effective software development methodology based on standards promoted by international organizations.
