Introducing Xcite™

AXIOM GROUP presents Xcite™, a new generation of helicopter-borne time-domain electromagnetic (HTDEM) systems developed by New Resolution Geophysics (NRG™). AXIOM is proud to now exclusively offer this service in North America.

By incorporating the latest new-age, high-speed electronics and sophisticated aeronautical engineering, the Xcite™ system is a new and innovative approach to geophysical surveying.

This state-of-the-art technology provides an efficient alternative to all prior HTDEM technologies for the minerals exploration and geoscience mapping community—helping you boldly discover.

Key features of the system include:

  • Innovative patented loop design
  • Exceptional signal/noise
  • Excellent depth of investigation
  • Performance in both early and late times
  • Dipole moment up to 372,000 NIA
  • Logistically superior in setup and shipping
  • New Resolution Helicopter
  • Time-Domain Electromagnetics

Xcite™ HTDEM benefits:

  • All raw, streaming data is recorded.
  • Time gates are selected post-flight, ensuring that data presentations can be tailored for all target or application requirements.
  • Rapid setup time of only 2 hours for a complete system installation.
  • Mobilization costs are reduced due to the compact size of the system when deflated.
  • The shock-absorbing qualities of the frame result in a perfectly damped platform producing extremely quiet data.

The Xcite™ system was developed using the latest technology available by a team of highly qualified and experienced engineers and geophysicists.

A patented inflatable bird has been developed as a carrier for the system. The transmitter loop diameter is approximately 20 metres resulting in programmable output power of up to 372,000 NIA. The inflatable structure supports different loop sizes, thereby providing system output powers that are far greater or smaller, depending on the requirements of each survey.

The inflatable bird design is unique:

  • Ultra-compact size when deflated, resulting in
    optimal logistics in shipping. The direct result being reduced mobilisation costs.
  • Fast set up time of approximately 2 hours.
  • The ideal combination of a robust structure, with
    flexibility while retaining a constant shape in flight, resulting in a stable and damped receiver platform.
  • Minimal interference from microphonic noise.
  • Less prone to damage than a conventional rigid or semi-rigid system.
  • Extremely stable flight characteristics.
  • Field repairable Innovative design.
