As the world runs lower on resources, utilities, miners, construction companies, and governments are forced to find new sources of energy and critical materials. But the drilling required to discover what’s underground is often environmentally damaging and costly. Founded by former Israeli army intelligence unit members, Exodigo offers what it describes as a “non-intrusive” platform that uses electromagnetic, radar, LIDAR, and other sensors carried by small carts and drones to scan the ground to produce detailed 3D subsurface maps. Recently, the California Department of Transportation used the platform to identify utility lines for a project to extend Highway 70. The company is also carrying out pilot projects in Florida and Texas.
