GEM Systems supplies magnetometers, gradiometers and magnetic sensors for Earth Science, Geophysics and other applications. Their three decades in the research and development of equipment for geophysical exploration have provided professionals in these areas with the tools they need to capture incredibly detailed and precise information. We've explored how their how their high-quality magnetometer technologies are being used on UAVs in the past, but Commercial UAV Expo 2018 attendees were able to get an up-close look at the DRONEmag, AirBIRD and AirGRAD from GEM Systems.

To get a better understanding of how and where these products are making a difference for users, we were able to connect with Shawn Kovacs, Ph.D., Geoscientist, Sales and Marketing Manager at GEM Systems during the event. He told us how their solutions have helped to enable a happy medium between walking and regional surveys, what's the best approach to get up and going with their solutions is and plenty more.
