Geophysical survey systems
Fibrotek manufactures, to each customer’s individual specifications, magnetometers sensor that can be mounted on boom or wing-tip pods. Each is manufactured for installation on most of the common aircrafts that are used for airborne surveys. Helicopter platforms are ideal for magnetic surveys due to lower flight speed and altitude in comparison to fixed-wing platform. Magnetometer sensors for measuring total magnetic field or magnetic gradient can be installed either in helicopter mounted booms, or in helicopter towed birds. Installation in helicopter attached booms provides simplified operations, but requires magnetic compensation. The towed bird installation can be attached to any helicopter as a hook load and does not require magnetic compensation.
