Our core design is outstandingly effective at separating noise from environmental data

South Coast Science designs and manufactures affordable, high-density air quality monitoring networks. We deliver accurate environmental data in real-time to evidence your compliance, inform your decision-makers and support community action.
Praxis devices are deployed in extremely hostile climates from Africa to Alaska and continue to provide robust data.
Parts per billion monitoring in real-time with 24/7 remote device monitoring, back-up power options and secure data retrieval & delivery from anywhere in the world.
Our products are designed to operate with minimal on-site supervision and continue performing at an optimal level over their lifetime.


The Praxis is the result of a working collaboration between ultra-low noise specialists, electrochemical sensor experts, and environmental scientists. Our software has its roots within best practice for commercial, cloud-centric middleware and big data management.

Using our robust Praxis ‘engine’ we are developing products that are optimised for the following applications:

  • Ambient air quality
  • Environmental health/Smart City
  • Indoor air quality
  • Odour monitoring

  • Working with the UN

    We work with the UN on implementation of ambient air quality networks globally. We also work to develop a platform encouraging the public to replicate and contribute to the open-source designs. Our solutions are easy to operate and require minimum local support.


    About Us

    Our business model is to develop engineering solutions which can be easily validated by our customers and integrated into their own systems. This is best achieved with an open relationship and an open-source technology.

    To date, our products are now used in the following countries: Argentina; Brazil; Chile; China; Costa Rica; Ethiopia; France; Germany; Italy; Kenya; Monaco; Senegal; Spain; Uganda; the UK and the USA.


    Partners & Networks

    We are proud that all South Coast Science software and data protocols are open source and this has led us to many fruitful partnerships and to seek out membership in networks of like minded organisations.
