Geophysical survey sytstems
Fibrotek manufactures magnetometric sensor mounts that attach to the tail or wing of the aircraft according to each customer's specifications. Each tool is manufactured to facilitate installation on most devices used for airborne prospecting. Tools assembled on helicopters are ideal for magnetic surveys because of their slower flight speed and lower flight altitude compared to a tool assembled on an aircraft. The magnetometric sensors used to measure the total magnetic field or the magnetic gradient can be installed directly on the helicopter or towed by it. Installation on the helicopter allows for simplified operation, but requires magnetic compensation. Sensor towing allows the use of any type of helicopter and does not require magnetic compensation.
