Schonstedt, a division of Radiodetection that is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of magnetic locators, marks its 70th anniversary this year. Founded in 1953, Schonstedt initially manufactured magnetometers for several NASA deep space probes, including the Hubble Space Telescope.  

These achievements in the study of the earth’s magnetism led to the invention of Schonstedt’s HeliFlux® sensors. The sensitivity of these patented sensors is unparalleled and is a huge factor in the success of Schonstedt Magnetic Locators.  

Schonstedt joined the Radiodetection family in 2018 and has since complemented the Radiodetection suite of products beautifully. Join us in wishing Schonstedt a very happy 70th!
