Multispectral Remote Sensing

Military technology taken to the next level.

GeoResonance Remote Sensing is a revolutionary technology for exploring the Earth from outer space to identify and locate hydrocarbons, groundwater, gold and other Earth mineral deposits.

At the core of GeoResonance Remote Sensing is the study of interaction between the targeted substance and radiated energy. All subsurface deposits generate energy and leave unique Spectral Signatures, which can be registered by satellite photographs.

GeoResonance Remote Sensing surveys are based on the processing of analogue multispectral images, which are captured by specialised film-return satellites. GeoResonance Remote Sensing surveys are executed at the GeoResonance research facility. A typical survey project involves the team of 29 geoscientists, 5 professors and 12 PhDs. Upon completion, the Remote Sensing Survey Report is delivered to the client.

Remote Sensing Survey

Technology Concept

The concept of GeoResonance Remote Sensing could be described by four steps:

  1. Determine the resonance spectra (Spectral Signature) which can be used to reliably identify the targeted substance.
  2. Obtain analogue multispectral images, which had captured electromagnetic information above the surface of the surveyed territory.
  3. Process multispectral images to extract the targeted Spectral Signature from the captured EM information, to identify anomalous zones and their characteristics.
  4. Capture the identified information about the targeted substance in a geographical information system (GIS).

  3. Earth Remote Sensing. Obtain analogue multispectral images of the survey area.
  4. Radiochemical processing of the imagery in the GeoResonance research facility.
  5. Repeated processing of the imagery to determine all parameters required by the survey.

GeoResonance On-Site Surveys

Geoscience of the 21st century.

Direct identification of substances

Spectroscopy taken to unprecedented depths.

GeoResonance On-Site Survey is a synthesis of geophysical techniques for the study of occurrences of hydrocarbons, groundwater and mineral deposits in the Earth’s crust. To eliminate ambiguities, we employ a number of proprietary technologies for direct identification of materials at 5,000 - 6,000 metre depths.

During survey a team of 4-6 experts visits the survey area to take measurements within previously identified Deposit Type Anomalies. The measured data is taken to the GeoResonance research facility for further study and analysis. Upon completion, the On-Site Survey Report is delivered to the client.

On-Site Survey

Technology Concept

Unambiguous identification of a substance can only be based upon reliable detection of its unique atomic structure. Modern science employs spectroscopy techniques to study atomic properties. Spectroscopies measure radiation intensity as a function of wavelength. Atoms have unique resonance spectra (Spectral Signature), which can be used to detect them.

The concept of the GeoResonance On-Site Survey can be briefly summarised as:

  1. Determine the resonance spectra (Spectral Signature) which can be used to reliably identify the targeted substance.
  2. On location, send the narrow-beam resonance signal into the subsurface.
  3. If the beam intersects atoms of the targeted substance, its perturbed nuclei start resonating at characteristic frequencies (Spectral Signature), which are detected by GeoResonance instrumentation at the surface.
  4. The absence of the Spectral Signature response at the surface manifests the absence of the targeted material in the subsurface.
