The 3D Chirp is a surface-towed sub-bottom profiling system capable of producing 3D seismic volumes of the upper tens of metres of sediment and imaging buried structures and objects with 3D decimetric resolution.

Applications

➢ Marine Archaeology

➢ Pre-Construction and Avoidance Analysis

➢ Post-Construction Depth of Burial

➢ Unexploded Ordnance Detections and Analysis

➢ High Resolution Stratigraphy

 
 

Features

➢ Wide bandwidth source 1.5kHz to 13.0kHz

➢ 12.5cm or 25cm resolution

➢ Tens of meters of sub-bottom penetration

➢ SEGY data output

➢ True 3D geometrically corrected target imaging

Data Examples
