Who We Are


Advanced Geosciences Inc. (AGI) is the leading developer and manufacturers of resistivity/IP/SP imaging systems since 1989. We introduced our Sting/Swift resistivity imaging system at the European Association of Exploration Geophysicists (EAGE) conference in 1994, which introduced the resistivity imaging revolution. Since then, we’ve been producing state-of-the-art products for electrical resistivity and IP imaging, including:

  • SuperSting Wi-Fi, our multi-channel electrical imaging system, which comes in five models, ranging from our entry-level R1 to the fastest version, the R8:

    • R1 (1 channel)

    • R2 (2 channel)

    • R4 (4 channel)

    • R6 (6 channel)

    • R8 (8 channel)

  • PowerSting, our series of external high-power IP (Induced Polarization) transmitters for the SuperSting.

  • PowerSting Nodes, our high-powered automated transmitter electrodes for induced polarization and resistivity 2D tomography mineral exploration surveys.

  • MiniSting R1, our meter designed for manual resistivity jobs.

  • Passive Electrode Cables , for use on-land or underwater.

  • Swift Dual-Mode Smart Electrodes, used for highly sensitive measurements.

  • AGI Marine Graphite Electrodes, for use in corrosive environments.

  • EarthImager 1D, 2D and 3D, our inversion modeling software.


Our products have been used in both applied projects and theoretical research studies, with over 1,000 peer-reviewed journal articles published that utilize AGI’s systems and software. We’re the only resistivity/IP/SP imaging company that has developed our own hardware and software modeling systems, all of which are engineered and manufactured in Austin, Texas, USA.

Our Customers


Our resistivity/IP/SP instruments and inversion modeling software are delivered to all continents with customers in the USA, Canada, Central & South America, Asia, Middle East, Africa and Europe. AGI customers include government labs, universities, research institutions, mineral exploration companies, water drilling companies, and environmental and geotechnical engineering firms.


With offices in the U.S. and Europe, we provide our customers with free industry-leading technical support around the clock. We also offer rapid repair turnaround times and quick development of customized equipment and software.



Comprehensive training seminars are offered in Austin, Texas, in Madrid, Spain, and at customer sites.  


Anyone who purchases a SuperSting system gets two free tickets to our three-day seminar in either Madrid or the U.S. If you purchase the seminar within 4 months of purchasing the instrument, it will be discounted off the sales price. The seminar price is $1,640 per person.

Use Cases

AGI’s resistivity and IP imaging systems have been used to image the following targets in 2D, 3D and 4D

  • Optimal locations for groundwater wells

  • Caves, voids and sinkholes

  • Depth to bedrock

  • Engineered and natural slopes with a high potential for landslides

  • Pollution plumes

    • DNAPL and LNAPL spills

    • Brine spills

    • Radioactive waste

  • Marine 2D and 3D surveys (boat-towed and stationary)

  • Lithologic types

  • Economically Important Mineral Deposits

  • Archaeological sites

  • Time lapse monitoring of in-situ remediation processes such as ammonia injection, desiccation, vitrification, steam injection, pumping, and air-sparging

  • Time lapse Monitoring of subsurface processes such as pump tests, CO2 injection, groundwater recharge, infiltration tests, saltwater intrusion, tunneling, dam leakage, and mining operations
