UXO Detection

Eodtrailer1mediumUnexploded ordnance (UXO) is extremely hazardous and must be removed before land can be reclaimed for civilian purposes.

Gap EOD is proud to offer specialist services that can improve the welfare of people around the world.

An Experienced Team

Gap EOD personnel have over 25 years of experience in advanced equipment design, soil mitigation techniques, and development of sophisticated processing and interpretation software. This experience, coupled with our strong record in survey execution around the world of sites, makes us a worldwide leader in UXO detection solutions.

Eodtrailer2mediumUXO Detection Services

Gap EOD’s services are based on innovative geophysical technologies such as the multi-component UltraTEM system and the highly sensitive UltraMAG system. Based on these sensor systems, Gap EOD operates a range of multi-sensor acquisition platforms for ultra-high definition digital mapping with high efficiency.

These platforms include person-carried and vehicle towed single-, quad-, and octo-sensor systems, as well as a marine/subaqueous acquisition ROV in development.

EodwalkingframemediumAvailable in Different Environments

The broad expertise across Gap EOD and Gap Geophysics Australia enables us to design the most cost effective and best performing UXO detection solutions for complex environments, such as:
• urban development sites
• geologically hostile terrain with magnetic rocks or soils
• deep-search projects
• offshore detection problems


Capabilities and Performance

• Distinguish closely spaced individual targets
• Accurate details on object position & depth
• Auditable digital recording of all data
• Imaging depth: >3 m in magnetic SE Asia soils
• Daily coverage: up to 7,500 m2; 22,500 m3

The system has been extensively tested during feasibility trials with blind seeded targets and is currently in operation for production surveys at sites in Southeast Asia and Australia.
