Collier offers low-altitude, drone enabled geophysical surveys. Geophysical methods developed and adapted for drone surveys include magnetics, electromagnetics, ground penetration radar (GPR), and gamma ray spectrometry. Collier specializes in aeromagnetic surveys for locating abandoned oil and gas wells and delineating buried pipelines. These techniques may also be used for mapping geology for groundwater and mineral resource exploration and development.
We deploy the latest innovation in magnetometers, the MagArrowTM by Geometrics, Inc., using a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to obtain magnetic data over areas that are difficult to access or simply too large to cost-effectively survey on the ground. Color photogrammetry, thermal infrared, and LiDAR drone surveys are also offered. In addition, Collier offers data processing, visualization, and interpretation of drone magnetic and other data.
Our drone services managers, Nicole Pendrigh and Juan Ortega, have more than 25 years of experience in the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of ground and airborne geophysical data.
