The Typhoon™ data acquisition system is the most accurate and powerful
IP and EM geophysical survey technology available to base metal explorers today.
For illustrative purposes only.
Deeper, faster, better
Typhoon™ technology provides better quality primary signal, allowing for higher resolution, larger scale and deeper detection than existing technology.
High-powered geophysical systems have been used for many years in a variety of exploration situations but now Typhoon™ can see deeper, survey faster and provide better results.
Representing the next generation of geophysical systems, Typhoon™ provides much higher output than earlier systems.
Partner with HPX to access innovative, groundbreaking technological hardware solutions
to address the limitations of existing exploration technology.
Greater depth penetration
Typhoon’s high power and precisely controlled signal provides a very high signal-to-noise ratio, for greater depth penetration - up to 5X deeper than other equipment. Our ability to precisely control and tune the waveform allows both time domain and frequency domain IP and EM to be acquired.
We can acquire this information in a variety of configurations, including: gradient array or pole-dipole IP; and fixed loop, moving loop or downhole EM.
Fast surveys, tough conditions
Typhoon™ can survey where other systems are ineffective.
The high quality signal produced remains pure even in hostile recording conditions and is especially effective at injecting current into areas of very high contact resistance.
Typhoon’s immense power means large areas can be covered quickly, reducing the cost per unit area. The increased power and better signal also mean less time preparing the ground and electrodes.
The clean, high quality signal obtained by Typhoon must be maintained throughout data processing.
At HPX, we use custom software and advanced IP processing methods to preserve the quality of the signal.
This allows us to define subtle targets at greater depths.
Safe, efficient, reliable
Unlike conventional systems, the Typhoon data acquisition system is an “all-in-one” unit, with the generator and transmitter packaged together.
The system is available in various configurations making it suitable for diverse exploration environments.
On-board intelligent electronics instantly shut down the system if potentially hazardous situations are detected.
EFFICIENCY ORIENTED SOFTWARE
Together with our strategic partners at Computational Geosciences Inc.,
we optimise survey design and processing to rapidly extract maximum information from new and existing datasets.
Survey design and optimization
By combining HPX in-house expertise with the data processing capabilities of our strategic partners at Computational Geosciences Inc. we optimise survey design before each survey to uncover the best possible results.
For optimal survey design we:
- Choose the best geophysical methods to define the target
- Predict the ideal transmitter and receiver locations and operating frequencies
- Balance real-world budgets and logistical constraints
- Rigorously test the performance of our design against geological models
At HPX we combine several commercial processing and inversion packages with our own proprietary software and methods to create the most accurate and reliable 2D images and 3D models from gravity and magnetic data.
For more advanced geophysical techniques, including EM and IP datasets, HPX works with its strategic partner Computational Geosciences Inc., a world leader in the application and development of inversion and forward modelling methods.
- Invert data obtained from various sources, receivers and configurations
- Work with any topography or environment
- Model complex targets in 3D
- Perform detailed regional inversions (billion cells) utilizing advanced OcTree meshing
- Deliver results quickly
