Loza V Radar Kit

Hardware - The Radar uses different sized antennas, transmitters, receivers and consoles. The Radar is configured as follows:

A Transmitting Antenna

A Receiving Antenna

A Transmitter

A Receiver

Receiving Console

Laptop with proprietary software

Scanning to different depths or achieving certain resolutions, requires the same configuration with component parts changed to suit the target and objective.

Loza Console / Real Time Display

The radar gives a real-time display of the radar profiles on a liquid crystal screen, or Display Console Unit (DCU). The data captured can be immediately downloaded to a computer for further processing on advanced analytical software.

 The DCU is attached to the receiver that is mounted on the antenna.  The operator is able to monitor the data collection process in real time.  The operator to immediately signal during the survey that there are changes in geophysical readings, for example, indicating a change in structure or lithology.

✓ On the right - we see the waveform from the last shot taken by the radar. An experienced operator can review the shape of the wave, and understand the properties of the ground beneath him.

✓ The image on the left - is a section form build-up of the profile. The image is generated from “stacking” all the waves from previous shots. It gives us a geophysical “picture” that relays real time geological information.

The operator looks at the screen as he progresses along the profile, and can call-out features of interest. For example, entering a paleochannel, or crossing a fault. It is this function that allows Loza surveys to be dynamic, where the survey team can adapt the profile according to the resource and the client’s objectives.
