Our process depends on cutting-edge R&D and a constant pipeline of innovation. Impossible's team takes projects from concept to prototype employing proprietary design, testing and alignment methods to integrate first-of-kind sensors into novel architectures for Space, Ocean and OGM applications.  Our fleet of spectral analysis tools has been designed to adapt to a wide-array of form factors in order to suit a wide array of challenges.


AASTAR (Autonomous Aerial Sample Tracing and Recovery) is an industry-first innovation combining automated region-of-interest survey and sampling tasks in a free-flying robot. 


The unique ability of AASTAR to both survey and retrieve surface/subsurface samples greatly expands the types of missions achievable and increases the efficiency of mineral exploration, environmental monitoring and precision farming applications by eliminating the need for follow-up, human-led sampling missions after aerial surveys. The on-board machine vision tools allow highly sensitive recognition of regions of interest, including mine face scanning and guided excavation.


Our airborne systems can also improve safety by preventing the need for humans to enter hazardous environments to attain samples including oil&gas and mining exploration sites, nuclear reactors to determine levels of radioactivity and looking for buried explosives and unexploded ordinance in war zones.

Impossible Sensing is located in St. Louis Missouri, USA. We specialize in science and technology for measuring the scattering and absorption of light. Since 2016, we’ve been providing science and engineering contract R&D and customized end-to-end systems in Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Raman spectroscopy, reflectance spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, and imaging.
