Intrepid Geophysics (formerly Desmond Fitzgerald & Associates) has provided software and services for potential field geophysics and geology - for more than 35 years. Since 1992 the group of companies has carved out a strong reputation for their commercial and academic software products, whilst maintaining personal service and custom code development.

Our deliverables are clear and comprehensive: We provide solutions in INTREPID software for potential fields geophysical processing, QC, geological interpretation, integrated 3D geology (building 3D implicit geology models from primary data in GeoModeller software) & 2D/3D geophysical forward and inverse modelling, including world-renowned support for Full Tensor Gradiometry. GeoModeller functionality also contains geothermal, meshing and micro-seismic event visualisation modules.

Our Service work for your bespoke project can employ any of these software codes, and optionally may include 2.5D inversion solutions from your airborne EM data (using MOKSHA code).

Software product history

In 1992 the company, backed by industry and government participants, launched the "Intrepid" product, the foremost tool for potential field geophysical interpretation, processing, visualisation and QC.

In 2002, the BRGM (French geological survey) approached our company to take an interest in commercialising "GeoModeller", a leading edge software product for 3D geological and geophysical modelling.

Intrepid Geophysics also develops and maintains JetStream, a web based data archiving and cataloguing solution, for fast and secure delivery of geophysical datasets - offering enhancements and no loss of precision upon download.

The Intrepid Geophysics Group of companies and its partners employ more than fifteen geophysicists, software developers and a range of professional support staff.

Software, Training, Solution Services are sold to a global customer base (more than 60% not based in our home-base of Australia). We are also proud of long-term contractual agreements with several geological surveys, mining companies, and oil and gas companies covering activities as wide-ranging as customised product development, software supply and the supply of geophysical processing and interpretation services.
