Technical Parameters

 

Terravision Exploration’s shallow system uses bistatic, half wave dipole, resistively loaded antennas linked to a high-speed receiver and recording console. The high frequency configurations are useful for high resolution surveys of the shallow sub-surface up to depths of 10m, in ideal conditions they have been known to penetrate up to 25m depth! The high frequency systems boast the following antennas:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bertha Transmitter: 20MW “monopulse”: Effective penetration depth is 200m

 

  • The capacity of the transmitter can be from 1 to 10-20 Megawatt

  • Working  frequency range (MHz) 1-250

  • Number of samples per scan (ns) 512, 1024, 2048, 4096

  • Antennas can be 0.3m, 1m, 1.5m, 3m, 6m, 10m and 15m.

 

Hardware

 

The Radar uses different sized antennas, transmitters, receivers and consoles. The Radar is configured as follows:

 

  • A Transmitting Antenna

  • A Receiving Antenna

  • A Transmitter

  • A Receiver

  • Receiving Console

  • Laptop with proprietary software

Scanning to different depths or achieving certain resolutions, requires the same configuration with component parts changed to suit the target and objective.
