Xcalibur Multiphysics, the worldwide leader in airborne geophysics, have announced a collaboration with Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT), to produce a novel next generation airborne gravity gradiometer.
Responsible mapping of natural resources is a critical component of sustainable investment, supporting the transition to clean energy, tackling climate change, protecting biodiversity, and building more inclusive and circular economies.
This new instrument will augment Xcalibur’s existing technology, allowing for efficient, targeted exploration through non-invasive data acquisition and analysis from Xcalibur’s airborne platforms. With the anticipated significant improvement in sensitivity and resolution, the ability to map geology, detect specific targets and model the data will be greatly enhanced. The technology has the potential to change the way governments, exploration teams, and scientists use and integrate multi-physics data and will lead to faster, more informed decisions about how to manage natural resources.
“We believe in investing in R&D projects that not only push the boundaries of applied science, but also contribute to protecting biodiversity by efficient mapping of natural resources to support the energy transition. We are excited to add this new technology to our already impressive toolbox, and to continue our efforts to democratise access to high quality remotely sensed data” said Andrés Blanco, Chief Executive Officer of Xcalibur Multiphysics.
