ASDROAdvanced & Specialized Drone Solutions

High-tech geophysics for efficient surveying, inspection
and expert evaluation of surfaces and subsoils.


With the help of drone technology, we analyse areas, buildings and structures of all kinds within the shortest possible time and with the highest precision. Visualised clearly and precisely to the centimetre.

The basis is Drone-Geomagnetics with our highly specialized geophysical sensor technology, coupled with Drone-Photogrammetry.


As a spin-off of the Institute of Geophysics of the University of Muenster, we have been operating since August 2018 mainly in the fields of application:

– UXO Detection
– Disturbing Body Detection
– Pipeline-Locating
– Archaeology
– 3D-Survey

ASDRO closes the gap
between time-consuming manual
and expensive helicopter surveys.

Drone Geomagnetics

With our self-developed drone geomagnetics method it is possible to detect e.g. explosive ordnance, ferrous contaminated sites, pipelines and current-carrying lines in the ground. A drone equipped with a magnetometer flies autonomously over a previously planned measurement area and measures the local magnetic field of the earth.

Especially in areas that are difficult to access and for probing large areas, drone geomagnetics has an advantage over conventional methods.

Drone Photogrammetry

The surveying and mapping of areas plays a decisive role in the cost calculation of construction projects. Especially the surveying of inaccessible areas was not possible or very cost-intensive until now.

Through the use of drones, these areas can be mapped and directly included in the construction planning within the framework of digitalisation.

ASDRO 3D-Surface Models
provide accurate information
to heights and volumes.

Using photogrammetric processing of aerial photographs and GPS reference data, we calculate a digital visualization of the area or building with high positional accuracy.

Our 3D data sets can be used as a planning and calculation basis in various projects in civil engineering, route planning, geomonitoring, etc. and offer interfaces for a variety of subsequent processes.

The ASDRO idea stems from a research series
at the Institute for Geophysics in Muenster.

The two founders Julian Wessel and Alexander Weyer researched the implementation
of geophysical sensors on drones.

In spring 2019, the two founded the company ASDRO out of the university
and are supported by the EXIST-Gründerstipendium.
