Founded in Sep 2015, KETOS is already gaining accolades and capturing the imagination of what is possible when it comes to solving a fundamental quality-of-life issue.
At KETOS, we are ushering in a new era of understanding, one of the most fundamental, critical elements of life: water. Our goal is simple: to improve water quality, safety and conservation – and enhance healthcare on a global scale. We do this by providing the tools and insights needed to optimize water usage, ensure resource efficiency and provide water safety assurance – and by making these tools affordable and accessible.
Fracking, mining, pollution, runoff, aging water infrastructures, pesticides, and fertilizers are just a few of the potential dangers to our water resources – that is, if water resources are to be had at all. Today, over 2.5 billion people don’t have access to clean water, and 5 million die annually due to water-borne diseases in developing nations. The actionable data necessary to measure and manage water usage, consumption metrics and pollution levels has not been available without manual intervention or sample lab testing – until now. Agriculture is one of the largest consumers of water, while also impacting heavily the quality of water released into the streams and rivers.
Do we really understand our water enough to act or make a change?
Our blend of innovative patented hardware with an intelligent interactive software fabric provides predictive and actionable insights through data analytics. These make up the core elements of the KETOS platform – and lead to the smart water data needed for smart irrigation, industries and cities.
Smart Water Monitoring with Actionable Intelligence
Water intelligence that reveals the presence of hazardous toxins and provides metrics is the foundation for an actionable plan for water improvement.
The tools KETOS provides are designed for an array of industries, farmers, commercial businesses, schools and other private/ public market applications in which water plays a critical role.
The name “KETOS”, a derivative of “CETOS” referring to Orca in Greek is about preserving some of our planet’s largest ocean mammals, signifying our commitment to the oceans and planet as a whole, driving water to be “top of mind” for people.
