Global UAV Technologies has received two separate unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey contracts in the US, the company announced on 7 February.

The contracts are with repeat and new customers. The surveys, one of which has already been completed, are being flown by Global UAV’s subsidiary Pioneer Aerial Surveys.

The UXO survey projects utilise the same UAV-MAG survey technology the company uses for mining and exploration related geophysical surveys.

The technology includes the GSMP-35U sensor, an ultra-light-weight potassium magnetometer from Gem Systems. When flown on a UAS, Pioneer Aerial can conduct autonomous survey flights in an ultra-high resolution, low altitude pattern which makes UXO detection possible.
