mDOS & Gamman

medusa Detector Operating System (mDOS)

We offer a uniform interface across all our products. Whether conducting an airborne survey for mineral exploration, locating a lost source with a UAV, or utilizing our detector for a handheld survey to map the environment, you can rely on the same user-friendly interface. This software is specifically developed for in-the-field use, optimized for ease of use, and designed to automate your survey workflow.

GammAn post-processing software

For situations that require post-processing of data, a seamless connection with mDOS facilitates rapid reprocessing. The system is available with a graphical user interface and also as a set of command-line tools for both Windows and Linux, allowing you to integrate the analysis seamlessly into your existing workflow.
