MRS utilizes a wide variety of equipment for the detection and remediation of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO). In addition to the pieces of equipment showcased on our website, MRS relies heavily on the use of Real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning systems in order to be certain of the location of potential UXO.
Real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning is a satellite navigation technique used to enhance the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems (global navigation satellite systems, GNSS) such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou. It uses measurements of the phase of the signal's carrier wave in addition to the information content of the signal and relies on a single reference station or interpolated virtual station to provide real-time corrections, providing up to centimetre-level accuracy. It has applications in land survey, hydrographic survey, and in unmanned aerial vehicle navigation.
MRS also uses the industry standard for Geographic Information Systems (GIS), ARCGIS. ArcGIS is used for creating and using maps, compiling geographic data, analyzing mapped information, sharing and discovering geographic information, using maps and geographic information in a range of applications, and managing geographic information in a database. We are able to utilize ARCGIS to provide our clients with up-to-date and near real-time data as projects progress.
Our arsenal of detection equipment includes (but is not limited to):
Aeonix EM360 Towed Array - for swiftly surveying large terrain, towed by UTV or other all terrain vehicle.
Airborne Multi-Sensor Magnetic Gradiometer - a device designed for aerial survey of large geographical areas, towed below a helicopter.
Geonics EM61 - the present industry standard for metal detection.
