Geodetic & Geophysical Instruments

For decades, our Jos. Hansen Group provides Geodetic instruments for the African markets.

Geodesy and Geophysics are both part of earth sciences. Whereas Geodesy deals with the measurement of the earth’s surface in a three-dimensional time-varying speed, Geophysics explores the internal structure of the earth.

Due to the extensive expansion in Africa in the fields of construction, infrastructural road work operations as well as water and mining research programs, it has become essential that the necessary instruments meet the increasing requirements for very precise measurements. For decades, Jos. Hansen Group has been successful in supplying and implementing Geodetic and Geophysical instruments to Africa. Our extensive product portfolio includes:
