TrackMaker Software Update

2 October 2014

Since Geonics moved to supplying the Archer data logger with its Windows Mobile OS a Key Lock dongle has not been required to run Geomar’s TrackMaker software.

TrackMaker & RTmap software for the EM31MK2, EM38MK2, EM61MK2, G-823 and Grad601-2 is supplied in two parts. Nav31 etc… is the data acquisition package for Windows Mobile. Nav software is activated by a password generated from the data logger serial number.

The newest version of TrackMaker is supplied with a password and are backward compatible with Nav_CX and Nav_DOS data acquisition software. We still supply Key Lock dongle as part of rentals but we will be phasing them out in the near future. The support CD supplied with an EM31MK2, EM38MK2, EM61MK2 and G-823 rental includes the new versions of the software which are located under the ‘Nav-Trackmaker Software’ directory. We will also be uploading the setup files to our ftp site,, so that customers can download the most up-to-date versions. Please contact to request the Username and Password.

S-Boom triple plate boomer now available for rental!

12 December 2013

The Applied acoustics S-Boom has become renowned as the leading source for Ultra High Resolution marine seismic surveys. Already recognised for producing high resolution seabed profiles, the fusion of these three transducers delivers a source level high enough to significantly increase sub-bottom penetration while maintaining a vertical resolution of better than 0.25 metres.

Innovation within the energy source sees the S-Boom capable of operating at a maximum energy output of 1000 Joules per pulse, and firing at 3 pulses per second. At this setting, the S-Boom has achieved penetration results of over 200ms through sand and limestone whilst delivering the high resolution records expected of boomer systems.

The S-Boom is powered by a CSP- S1250 power supply and can be supplied with a Geometrics MicroEel seismic streamer, formulating a perfect data acquisition package suitable for construction geological surveys including shallow gas mitigation.
