Moving UXO Classification to the Cloud

Geosoft is partnering with Acorn Science and Innovation to create a cloud-based technology solution for unexploded ordnance (UXO) classification projects. The three-year project, funded by the US Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), will deliver a cloud prototype for classifying buried metal as either UXO or non-hazardous clutter based on the analysis of electromagnetic induction (EMI) data. UXO classification requires several players working in different locations, currently on personal computers. This includes field technicians, data processors, data analysts, government project managers and geophysicists, and regulators. Data collected using advanced electromagnetic (EM) sensors in the field are sent... (read more)
