One component seismic sensor MTSS-1021
has successfully passed the test works in Orenburg region
, Russia. Under the experimental work, a signal induced by an all-terrain vibrator was recorded simultaneously by a row of 240 sensors at a 50-meter step. Thus, the 2-D profile along the line of over 300 kilometers was consecutively collected. The results were verified by comparing it with the data obtained with conventional moving-coil geophones GS-20DX-1. The works were performed by 'SibGeoTekhServis'
and our subsidiary company 'Seismotronika' on the request of The Federal agency for subsoil resources management
The MTSS-1021 sensor is designed by R-sensors and Seismotronika as a part of SCOUT multichannel seismic wireless data acquisition system by Special Design Bureau for Seismic Instrumentation ("SKB SP"), Saratov, Russia. The sensor shares similar parameters with the MTSS-1001 but has self-contained power supply and is equipped with exchangeable Li-Pol accumulators.
Apart from the main tests, the ability of the METR-01 rotational sensors to register the Rayleigh waves directly was tested and verified. The information on the surface waves is sufficient for eliminating their interference with the desired signal.
