WELCOME TO THE FUTURE OF GEOPHYSICS

WHAT WE DO?

 

We provide cutting edge air photo, survey and magnetometer mapping to our clients. With multiple decades of combined industry experience our company began using and innovating drone technology in 2014.

Current drone technology allows us to photograph and map terrain in high-resolution 3D through the use of ground control points (GCP's) that are accurate down to just a few centimeters.

Resulting 3D models are applicable in a variety of industries including:

- Construction

- Exploration Mining

- Forestry

- Engineering applications

- Powerline

- Roadwork

- Aggregate/Stockpile

WHAT SETS US APART

Is our innovative system that we built from the ground.

Building from our experience working as a beta-tester for Geometric's new MFAM technology in 2017, we operate using the smallest, lightest and most sensitive mag sensor available on the market.

 

The end result is a developed drone-based system that can fly for 32 minutes on a single set of batteries and outperforms any of our competitors.

 

Advancing the Technology

Our system consists of using Geometrics Micro Fabricated Atomic Magnometer (MFAM) adapted to fly on the DJI M600 Pro hexacopter drone.

MFAM is the smallest and lightest magnetometer available on the market.

- It Operates at 1000hz (whereas other airborne mags operate at 10 or 20hz)

- It has dramatically greater sensitivity at 0.00003nT (nanoteslas) Typical competing airborne mags operate at a sensitivity that is a factor of 10 weaker than ours at 0.0003nT.

- The small size and light weight allows us to carry 2 sensors on a drone.

 

How this translates to real-world / field application

Operating at 1000hz, we collect 1000 readings per second on each sensor.

When flying at 50km per hour, this equates to 2 readings every 1.4 centimeters along flight path. This sample density is not possible using older mag technology.

The ability to view magnetic data at 1000hz, allows us to accurately "see" and plot magnetic noise generated by drone motors.

This would not be possible at 10 or 20hz. As a result, we avoid slinging sensors 5m or more below the drone. Using a carbon fiber fixed-mount improves flight handling.

This means we have the advantage of using 2 sensors while still utilizing less than 25% of the DJI M600 payload. Using carbon fiber fixed-mounts, an aerodynamic design and careful attention to weight distribution, the results are excellent handling compared to alternatives methods of mounting. Ensuring we take full advantage of our MFAM and the M600's operating range.
