GroundVue 7
from Utsi Electronics

The Groundvue 7 is an inline towed antenna specifically designed to map deep sub-surface anomalies in harsh environments. When undertaking a simple common offset reflection survey the systems can be triggered to sample at a specific time interval and GPS positions are automatously recorded.

Data is transferred via wireless network or Bluetooth (please specify on order) to a Windows OS device. The intuitive and user interface means data acquisition is simple and quick.

The GV7 Transmitter and receiver are not joined by a reference cable, the receiver automatically synchronises to the transmitter pulse repetition rate. No reference cable means preforming CMP and WARR velocity calibrations is effortless. WARR records can be acquired by one operator in seconds by simply detaching the transmitter from the receiver and pulling the receiver away from the transmitter at a steady pace.

The GV7 antennas are low frequency and unshielded, therefore operators will need to check if there are any national or local restrictions which may prohibit there use. In many cases the local communications regulator will need to be notified know when and where a survey is to take place. For use in the UK a Non- Operational Licence Application Form (OfW 225) must be submitted with Ofcom. Please contact Geomatrix for further information.
