Fast and accurate well-finding surveys

UAV Exploration Inc. is the geophysical services provider that pioneered Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Magnetic Surveying for well-locating. We combine the latest in lightweight magnetic sensor technology, highly specialized aerial platforms and expert-level flight operations to produce the highest quality unmanned aeromagnetic surveys available.

Technology that makes well-finding faster than ever

Until recent advances in drone and lightweight magnetometer technology, large-scale well surveys simply weren’t feasible. And certainly not scalable. Now, with the expertise to combine these two technologies, it’s both feasible and scalable.

Our drone-based magnetic surveys make traditional ground-based surveys a thing of the past.

Over 10X faster than traditional methods

More Accurate

UAV Magnetic Mapping
Finding the Gaps in America’s Magnetic Maps

A 2017 executive order mandated a plan to evaluate U.S. access to critical mineral resources, but the airborne magnetic survey maps that support this effort are sadly out of date. This high-resolution map of magnetic field variations measured over northwestern Minnesota shows many details of the 2.7- to 2.0-billion-year-old geology underlying the cover of glacial
