Our Story

Franz Van de Kop is an electrical engineer and his wife Bridget is a geographer concerned about the availability of water.  Early in their marriage, Franz promised to make Bridget an electronic prospecting system. In 2001 they, together with their son Andrew, obtained United States Patent 6,188,221 “Method and apparatus for transmitting electromagnetic waves and analyzing returns to locate underground fluid deposits.” This system was first used to find water, and three years later at the request of geophysicists at the SEG, they used the system to find hydrocarbons.

Current Status

​We will be locating ground water for ranchers in Central Texas. A complete survey for most properties can be carried out in one day. Within a week we could show the client the areas of greatest potential for ground water wells.
Any presence of oil or gas would also be indicated on the survey.
