Magnetic mapping survey system

Innovatum SMARTSEARCH is a underwater survey system providing highly detailed magnetic mapping, both in marine and land environments. SMARTSEARCH consists of an array of magnetic gradiometers sensors mounted to a frame, which can be mounted onto a ROV, or towed sled.

SMARTSEARCH is capable of carrying out a survey at up to 4 knots, and a data point acquired on each sensor from 1 to 15 times per second. SMARTSEACH logs the data to an ascii file which can easily be imported to any 3rd party visualisation software.
