The Lookout Point Team has been developing the DHR-SDSS (Deep High Resolution Subsurface Detection Survey System) which has applications to mining and mine safety, natural resource development, land-based oil & gas exploration, ore identification, defense, security investigations, and subterranean surveillance.
We are actively involved in developing and using advanced methods merging
Smart GeoReferencing legacy data with aerial mapping and applications of
deep geophysical subsurface/subterranean prospection mapping methods. For
their success, these methods rely upon a physical contrast to exist between
the subsurface features and the properties of the surrounding subsoil.
Understanding the nature and exact location of physical contrasts, in terms
of density, electrical conductivity, electrical resistance, magnetic or
dielectric properties, and ability to link this data with contextual
historical data remains fundamental to an appreciation of the advanced
discipline of Smart GeoReferencing. The applications are legion.
We are furthering research in this field focusing on major techniques in
turn: earth resistance, magnetic and electromagnetic methods including
advances in induction EM methods and ground penetrating radar, together with
an appreciation of more advanced approaches, such as the use of multiple EM
frequencies in concourse stabilized by a null vector, (zero point field) and
the use of surface and subsurface survey to better detect and monitor
chambers and voids.
Supplementing our data acquisition capabilities, we also provide Geophysical support services in the form of ground penetrating radar GPR and DHR-SDSS Sub Surface data acquisition and post processing 3D models, working towards a depth of 100-400 meters with high resolution using innovative survey techniques, where the signal data obtained is modeled into 3D visualizations which add to the dynamic record of a site, making the data immediately understandable, and actionable for the client.
Strategic mapping and support is available to in action intelligence sensemakers tasked to create in real-time aerial surveillance flight plans based on actionable data requiring the element of complex content integration. We can service a spectrum of applications regarding strategic sensemaking, merging in-depth contextual data with UTM map coordinates in a real-time man-in-the-loop upstream detection query methodology for predicting and forecasting threat contingencies and for planning the aerial surveys along projected paths of high probability surveillance outcome.
We can equip the strategic sensemaker who must design changing ground or aerial surveillance sets of UTM coordinates to match a changing strategy or tactical need compiled in real-time from high volumes of data automatically. We merge georeferencing software into an internet federated application utilizing SISMA (Savant Intelligence Servo-Mechanical Automaton) SGR (Smart GeoReferencing)TM.
We present high quality reports of surveys done within a GIS context, and provide extensive GIS mapping support where interactive layers of information can be queried and plotted on maps with dynamic spatial analysis. The system interacts through federation with Google maps and Google 3D maps and with other GIS mapping systems. It is a back-end B2B facility to achieve a force multiplier in planning of ground and aerial sub surface surveys. Custom services are available for any low or high resolution Open Area Planning and Analysis project, including oil field management and community development.
We combine a solid understanding of advanced data management and computing concepts, state-of-the-art surveying and mapping methods, remote sensing technologies including ground penetrating radar and sub surface analysis, cutting-edge computer hardware and software, with a wide range and depth of experience in multiple resource fields with a commitment to excellence to provide our clients with a spectrum of cost-effective, sole-source innovative services.
