Satellite-Synchronized Data Acquisition Units (MTU, MTU-A)

The MTU is the heart of the V5 System 2000. Introduced in the late 1990s, this patented system has now been used at tens of thousands of survey sites worldwide.  The MT techniques are excellent supplements to seismic in hydrocarbon exploration, but can also be used alone if logistics or geology make seismic impractical. A small number of magnetic channels can be combined with many electric channels to form an economical system of virtually any size. The deployment of synchronized remote reference stations permits sophisticated noise-reduction methods during processing. Several channel complements are available—electric (E) only, magnetic (H) only, or 2E + 3H combined. The units can be purchased for MT alone (MTU) or for selectable MT/AMT (MTU-A).
