HELICOPTER ELECTROMAGNETIC SURVEYS
– SkyTEM System –
WORLD-RENOWNED ELECTROMAGNETIC SYSTEM
Xcalibur has a strategic alliance agreement with the Danish airborne electromagnetic service provider and developer of the world-renowned SkyTEM helicopter transient EM system, to provide helicopter TEM surveys and the resulting standard processed data.
These joint surveys are mostly conducted in Africa and the Middle East where Xcalibur have a lot of experience in managing and conducting airborne surveys, often under difficult remote conditions.
Please refer to the SkyTEM website (www.skytem.com) for more detailed information and specifications of the different SkyTEM systems that are available.
We typically use Eurocopter B2 or B3 helicopters to sling the large SkyTEM loops with most of the sensors and equipment mounted on the slung bird and cables.
Above average quality magnetic data, standard GPS, bird height and orientation data are produced as standard by-products, while radiometric data is an optional extra (affecting system weight and hence survey costs)
