GSI is procuring a Heliborne geophysical survey system with Magnetic, Gravity, Time Domain-Electromagnetic and Radiometric sensors.


            Hyperspectral survey is one of the latest techniques used in many foreign countries where spectral signatures of various minerals received either through satellite or aerial survey, when analysed lead to mineral suites associated with mineral deposits. GSI and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) have jointly taken up a pilot project on the Hyperspectral study of the Hatti-Muski schist belt in Karnataka during the Field Season 2009-10.
