Real time resource characterization

We have developed a portfolio of technologies that address critical challenges at the scientific/engineering boundaries of subsurface exploration.  Conventional methods involve drilling and coring, and the analysis of cores in off-site laboratories.  Not only is this approach laborious, time consuming, and dangerous for human operators, but the results are not uniformly reliable and typically not available for weeks


Our subsurface exploration technologies combine concepts and methodologies from two different disciplines in revolutionary ways.  For example, our Instrumented Bit for In-Situ Spectroscopy, or IBISS, integrates drilling robotics and LIBS sensing into a new tool for subsurface geochemical and mineralogical investigations.  IBISS can be used in multiple industrial applications, e.g. geological prospecting; environmental monitoring and assessment; agricultural soil quality monitoring; oil & gas exploration and development, and homeland security initiatives.

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.
