Although primarily for archaeological use, our products are also used increasingly in other areas including environmental, forensics, geological, civil engineering and peace-time military applications.

The product range at present comprises earth resistance meters, fluxgate gradiometers and associated computer software, with new measurement techniques currently under development. Our products are low cost, user-friendly, lightweight and have proven reliability. Our equipment has appeared frequently on archaeological and historical television programmes.
