Helicopter Single Magnetic Sensor


The single magnetic sensor is mounted in a stinger which projects from the nose of the helicopter.

Geophysical Equipment:

  • Positioning: Accurate real-time corrected differential GPS navigation and data recovery
  • Magnetics: High resolution magnetics – one cesium magnetometer
  • New Matrix Digital VLF-EM (data can be inverted to produce resistivity maps, sections and depth slices for each frequency)
  • Radiometrics: Advanced digital, automatic gain stabilization spectrometer with individual crystal processing; 4 crystals/pack, one pack (16.8 litres down)

This system is ideally suited to obtain low terrain clearance, especially in rugged, inaccessible and remote terrain. Terraquest’s stinger system can be shipped globally and installed on several small helicopter types such as:
