Abstract
Sheet Dynamics Ltd., proposes to develop a 2D airborne seismic vibrometry array sensor that will enable both passive and active seismic tunnel detection surveys to be conducted with unprecedented speed and effectiveness. Techniques to deal with ground cover, seismic excitation requirements and to take advantage of the large-array seismic data set make possible by this sensor sill be developed. BENEFIT: The proposed technology has the ability to scan large geographic areas quickly looking for underground tunnels at a large standoff distance. Both active and passive detection methods are described.
