Generalizing Sato's conjecture for the Weber equation in exact WKB analysis, we explicitly determine the Voros coefficient of the Whittaker equation with a large parameter. By using our results we also compute alien derivatives of WKB solutions of the Whittaker equation at the so-called xed singular points of their Borel transform.

Keywords: exact WKB analysis, Whittaker equation, Voros coefficient, alien derivative, Stokes automorphism
