The VIBSIST-20 is a swept-impact, time-distributed seismic source. The seismic signals are generated by an electric hammer, which produces a rapid sequence of impacts according to a pre-programmed time function. The VIBSIST-20 is a non-destructive alternative that does not create environmental pollution such as chemicals and sound,. Legal risks frequently associated with using explosives are eliminated.
The VIBSIST-20 is intended for detailed P/S and surface waves surveys with a typical penetration range up to 250 m, in reflection mode. The fields of use include:
