Lunasonde makes the underground world visible, fundamentally transforming our understanding of the planet we live on.
We're pioneering subsurface imaging while providing a sustainable approach to resource exploration.
Underground resources - water and minerals - power our world but we’re permanently altering the planet to find them.
There is currently no sustainable way to search for these resources and no scalable way to map them.
Lunasonde’s ability to look 15,000x deeper than current satellites and sensors is the next frontier in resource exploration.
Our small satellite can locate groundwater, mineral deposits, and other geological resources up to 2 kilometers underground.
Our data is collected in 3 minutes and provides a true 3D map of the earth's subsurface.
Lunasonde collects data no one else has before.
A stream of VC dollars has been flowing into the mining business as software helps extraction companies operate more efficiently. Notable investments include Lunasonde, which prospects from space using satellites.
Lunasonde’s work could provide a better, more precise way to locate the resources the world will need.
Jeremiah Pate engineered a radar satellite system that sees up to 2 kilometers underground, essentially taking an MRI scan of the planet.
