UXO Survey methodologies

BODAC offers a variety of inshore and offshore survey equipment.

A magnetometer survey is the most common approach to detecting ferrous-based UXO. Depending on the assignment, we make a selection of appropriate magnetometers for the detection of underwater ammunition and aerial bombs. The data collected in the UXO survey is also interpreted for other hidden dangers such as utilities, construction works or ammunition dumps.

When an area is detected systematically with the UXO survey, a ship will sail in parallel tracks with detection equipment at a constant height above the sea floor. Navigation and positioning equipment is used to determine the exact location of the detection area.
