Thunderbird ERT

INTRODUCING THUNDERBIRD

Click here to see the full video.

The most technologically advanced electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) system in the geophysical subsurface investigation marketplace today. Thunderbird has higher accuracy and better resolution than the competition.

RELIABLE RESULTS.

Identical surveys were taken with Thunderbird and a competitor.

Thunderbird clearly identified a significant void . . . the competitor did not!

Unlike competitor systems, each Thunderbird electronic node (Intellinode™) is a micro-computer, allowing Thunderbird to be more adaptable in the field. Nodes can be added and removed easily without the hassle of swapping out a whole string to keep you working and reduce your downtime.

Thunderbird injects up to 4 times more current into the ground than competitor systems; more current means more data. And because Thunderbird is not limited by the number of channels, it can instead collect all useable data. This is an unparalleled advancement in ERT technology that provides higher resolution.

Intellinode™

Unlike competitor systems, each Thunderbird® Intellinode™ system contains a dedicated micro-computer, allowing the system to be quickly and accurately adaptable in the field. Nodes can be added and removed without the hassle of swapping out an entire string, greatly reducing downtime.  Likewise, the INTELLIGENT NODES™ geological surveying service provided by Wavemode® allows quick detection of subsurface anomalies and accurate first-time surveys eliminating repeat fieldwork and lengthy equipment failure downtime.

Virtual Wall

Thunderbird can be installed and used as a security measure by taking an underground measurement any time movement is recorded.

Higher Resolution

Thunderbird injects up to 4 times more current into the ground than competitor systems; more current means more data. And because Thunderbird is not limited by the number of channels, it can instead collect all useable data. This is an unparalleled advancement in ERT technology that provides higher resolution.

Deep Scan™

Wavemode® also provides the revolutionary DEEP SCAN™ service which utilizes the Intellinode™ System to its fullest extent to provide geological surveys of deep anomalies to image moisture and density anomalies at depths of up to 80 meters with accuracy unsurpassed in the industry.

Customizable System

Users can perform surveys of different spacings without changing the physical locations of the electrodes. This is accomplished by using the Intellinode™‑ to “skip” nodes to increase the intermediate spacing.

One-Button Surveys

Our 1-touch technology allows you to run surveys, gather data, analyze results, and store information seamlessly.

Dynamic Spacing™

The DYNAMIC SPACING™ service provided by Wavemode® is an industry leader, providing below-ground surveys to detect problems with soil water content and density variation allowing drastically reduced downtime and accurate, repeatable geological surveys the first time without lengthy delays. 

Superior Processing

Industry-leading software offers maximum control over collection, processing, and output for professionals ready to push their resistivity analysis to the next level.

In-Field Visualizations

Thunderbird will generate inversion visualizations in the field with no additional software. Thunderbird allows users to choose from two state-of-the-art inversion methods to visualize the data: Finite Element (FEM) and Finite Difference (FD).
