AKS Geoscience has over 25 years of domestic and international project experience focused on the application of near surface geophysical methods in solving complex environmental and engineering issues. Progressive and independent, they are comprised of professional geophysicists and engineers working to bring a unique perspective and to find an ideal solution for every project.

TECTERRA supported AKS Geoscience through the following programs: GEO-Placement and TECTERRA Geomatics Lab

“AKS Geoscience has benefitted greatly from TECTERRA support through their GEO-Placement program and Geomatics Lab. The GEO-Placement program allowed us to hire a PhD level Geomatics Engineer to assist us with a satellite-based land classification project we completed in Eastern Europe. This was the largest project AKS has ever worked on and the successful completion of the project allowed us to leverage the results to obtain other contracts. Through the Geomatics Lab, we were able to learn the fundamentals of UAV technology by utilizing TECTERRA’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) equipment and presenting sample results of UAV surveys to our client base. This allowed us to now purchase our own UAV and we will begin offering these services to our clients in 2016.”

Product Example(s): Seismic Refraction – Is commonly used to map depth to bedrock. Variations in material density and acoustic velocity of the subsurface, together referred to as acoustic impedance; enable the mapping of earth layering, and an interpretation of material type. This is done by measuring refracted seismic waves with respect to the known geometry of the seismic wave path.

Satellite Imaging – Using stereoscopic imagery (two satellite images taken of the same scene from different acquisition angles) elevations may be computed to a degree of accuracy which rivals LIDAR (air-borne radar). Digital elevation models (DEM) serve the purpose of providing the user with a correction table when ortho-rectifying a satellite image and for constructing a 3D earth model.
