Electronic Laboratory for geophysical exploration systems

The development of geophysical exploration systems with high resolution for underground applications and mobile operation on the surface implicate many interesting problems to be solved with electronics. That is, design and programming of radio-controlled data acquisition systems as well as control systems for seismic impulse and vibrator sources. Another challenging task is the planning, installation and initial operation of electrode arrays in boreholes. For testing and optimization of the developed systems measurement campaigns have to be accomplished. One skilled worker and one apprentice implement the ideas from our electrical and electronic engineers.
