Fugro Airborne Surveys offers the HELITEM system, the world’s most powerful commercially available helicopter-borne time-domain EM system (HTEM), having a transmitter dipole moment of 2.0 million A m2.
The high power of HELITEM, coupled with the low noise at the receiver due to its placement above and not in the centre of the transmitting loop, ensures the greatest depth of exploration possible for any AEM system. Fugro’s HELITEM is the only commercially available system providing measurements in X, Y, and Z receiver coils for both dB/dt and B-Field. Systems only offering Z-axis suffer from ambiguity of interpretation results for conductors. The X and Y axes data provided by HELITEM will allow for more complete and definitive interpretation of conductors, and allow for the discrimination of conductors by orientation. The high quality B-Field measurements de-emphasize the conductive overburden response while enhancing the response of strong bedrock conductors.
HELITEM combines the greater horizontal resolution and flexibility of helicopter-borne time-domain EM systems with the proven GEOTEM / MEGATEM technology. Key attributes include:
- Transmitter dipole moment of 2,000,000 A m2.
- Measurement of three components (X, Y, Z) of the secondary anomalous response.
- Full sensitivity on-time measurement.
- Measurement of both dB/dt and B Field.
- Access to a full suite of proven processing and interpretation packages.
