Developing a platform for mapping resources up to 2 kilometers beneath the Earth’s surface, using novel low frequency radar technology.

Description

High-resolution subsurface imaging is poised to fundamentally change the way we see our planet and its resources. By using smallsats to essentially take an MRI of the Earth’s surface (revealing more about what is close to the top) the practice is already aiding the mining, petroleum, and water resource industries.
