AquaVib™ Marine Vibrator
The SAE AquaVib™ Marine Vibrator is a towable marine source that generates seismic energy equivalent to airguns, at significantly reduced sound pressure levels, and at frequencies below the hearing range of most marine species.
The AquaVib™ subarray consists of two Triton vibrators and one lower frequency Subtone, each with different response characteristics and resonant frequencies. Advanced controller systems can enable precise acoustic output, while providing real-time feedback to ensure high levels of acoustic quality control. AquaVib™ is designed for water depths as shallow as one-meter, delivering performance and reliability in challenging transition-zones, lakes and shallow-water OBN surveys.
- Bandwidth control enables overall lower signal level output.
- Multiple-second sweep duration markedly reduces instantaneous sound pressure levels.
- Meets updated NOAA guidelines for TTS and PTS.
