Project background

Frankfurt Airport called and we answered. We have employed a number of geophysical measurement techniques to search the airport site for explosive ordnance. 53 ha will be measured using electromagnetic technology and 9 ha with Georadar.

Computer-aided systems will be used to produce colour-coded maps to help assess the amount of explosive ordnance present on the site. This will enable us to estimate the costs and determine the optimal clearance technology.
