Created by GeoPen, G-ATEM is the world's premier Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) -based surveying system. Its primary function is transient EM surveying difficult regions such as mountainous terrain, inter-tidal zones, rivers, and deserts. The system is composed of a flying platform, a ground station, acquisition system, and signal generator system, and is a modern example of smooth integration of UAVs and surveying.
