The following subsidiaries are majority owned by ESSI and form the Earth Search Sciences Group of Companies to be incubated and operate independently.
General Synfuels International, Inc. is the owner of a patented process to recover oil and gas products from oil shale, tar sands and heavy oil that is abundantly found in North America.

Hyperspectral Remote Sensing - PDAC 2004 International Convention
Terranet, Inc. was formed to act as the first hyperspectral imagery seller on the internet. Imagery collected today and yesterday can be sold repeatedly to multiple end users. Terrant now has access to ESSI’s data archive of over 200,000 sq. miles of imagery from over 5 continents, which is being added to daily.
Eco Probe, Inc. was formed to pursue hyper-spectral remote sensing applications in the environmental industry. ESSI has worked with U.S. government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management, US Forest Service and the Office of Surface Mining on setting up applications for commercial monitoring of industries, forests and health issues, slope stability assessment and the spread of noxious weeds. The experience and knowledge gained are being compiled to develop operations. Environmental problems such as those caused by the spread of non-native noxious weeds, loss of wildlife habitat, soil erosion, diminished water quality, loss of fish habitat, and reduced crop production, can be solved by the use of hyperspectral imagery as a monitoring tool.
