UXO, Buried Objects localization
Combining high current injection, high sensitivity electric field measurements at high frequency, and our proprietary BODIES data processing, MAPPEM Geophysics can detect all metallic objects. All metals can be detected, including aluminum, titanium, or copper based alloys.
The MAPPEM System can record DC resistivity values and induced electromagnetic signals during the same survey!
Buried Metallic objects such as pipelines, cables, UXOs, are often difficult to localize, particularly if their magnetization or ferro-magnetic content is small :
- Aluminum Mines (LMBs)
- Copper cables
- Archeological objects
- Other non magnetic metals (titanium, etc.)
The MAPPEM systems are the only ones capable of direclty detecting LMB mines, buried or not.
Injected current simultaneously measured
The MAPPEM sytem and BODIES data processing allow the detection and localization of buried metallic objects.
- UXO surveys (cable routes, predredging work, harbour development)
- Cable or pipeline tracking and localization
