"All integrated sensors in combination with the aircraft composite construction deliver ideal measurement results of highest quality. The unique and simple operation is an additional benefit for a possible single pilot operation."

DI Michael Pregesbauer, CEO, Geoprospectors GmbH

Highlights

The Mission

Geophysical airborne surveys of geological structures of inaccessible and remote areas for the hydrocarbon and mining industry (mapping and subsequent exploration). The use of multi sensor technology increases efficiency and saves money. Environmental monitoring, nuclear deposit and hazard detection by using an aerial turn key solution with the latest and most sensitive sensor technology.

The turnkey solution

The first aerial turnkey sensor platform worldwide that carries VLF, radiation detection and magnetometer sensors. Your benefit: you can conduct VLF, radiation and magnetic monitoring during one single flight - saving time and money.

Your Advantages

  • Turnkey solution for VLF, radiation and magnetic monitoring - simple operation
  • Easily combinable with other sensor systems for increased mission options
  • More cost-effective than similar solutions
  • Ideal signal/noise ratio due to the low interference rate of the aircraft composite construction
  • Highly sensitive state-of-the-art detectors - compliant with IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)
  • Advanced data analysis and processing
  • Rapid coverage of huge areas (> 1000 line km per flight)
  • Long endurance (8 hrs) and maintenance intervals (100 hrs)
  • Worldwide operability due-to multi-fuel certified jet fuel engines (Jet-A, Jet-A1, TS-1, RT, JP-8, and No. 3 Jet fuel)
