Market leading Geophysical solutions.

For over 50 years, Geometrics has been developing and manufacturing a range of geophysical instruments and software for use in land, air, and sea investigations. These innovative products are used throughout the world and on projects as varied as geotechnical evaluation, mineral exploration, environmental studies, archaeological investigations and UXO surveys.

Geometrics develops reliable instruments known for accuracy, high data quality and durability in the field. The seismic products are an essential part of any subsurface investigation, especially critical infrastructure projects such as dam construction and monitoring. The traditional wired systems or the newest wireless Atom system can be deployed in almost any location for locating faults and to evaluate geotechnical and soil conditions.
