Supracon is developing a geomagnetic prospection system for the detection near surface phenomena in cooperation with Thuringian research institutions and companies. The system is designed for a fast and economical three-dimensional magnetic mapping of the ground.
It has two operation modes, either attached to a vehicle or alternatively pushed manually along the ground. This latest development has already proven its advantages for building ground evaluation, unexploded ordinances detection and archaeological investigations in practical application.
Supracon has been granted a research contract by the European Space Agency (ESA). The project is carried out in close cooperation with OIB (Optische Interferenz Bauelemente) GmbH Jena. The research is directed at the fabrication of focal plane filter mosaics (FPFM).
