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.
