Elvis Seismic Vibrator
from Geosys

Elvis is a compact P or S wave vibratory source is ideal for high resolution seismic reflection surveys.

The newly available Sweep Freq vibrator control software developed by Geomatrix, means that you can control the operation of both Geodes and the vibrator from the same PC, and have total control over your sweep parameters and output amplitude, please refer to Sweep Freq page for further details.

Elvis brings the control of data quality previously the realm of seismic reflection surveys for the oil industry in to the hands of the engineering geophysicists.
