IMAGEM, developed and operated by Devbrio Géophysique, is a ground portable geophysical TDEM system capable of detecting conducting bodies from the surface down and at depth with a precision until now impossible to reach by similar instruments. It consists of a system using a 450 µs pulse and a peak current of 700 A, with a half-sinusoidal waveform.

The support platform of the emitter and receiver is 1.2 m by 2.4 m, entirely made of composite materials, is light and allows the use of the whole system through cut lines in forest, and can be towed behind a snowmobile or an ATV.

IMAGEM records 30 georeferenced measurements per second, in addition to continuously monitoring the important survey parameters, such as the temperature, the emitted current and the platform orientation, accelerations and vibrations.

Simple and quick deployment - Results in 48 hours

Our Partners

The IMAGEM system is developed and operated by Devbrio Géophysique, in collaboration with the Industrial Research Assistance Program of the National Research Coucil (NRC- IRAP), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the University of Ottawa and the Carleton University. Numerous calibration sites have been used in Québec and Ontario to quantify the performances of the system.

Updates

New NSERC Engage Grant

Devbrio is pleased to announce a new collaborative relationship with Prof. Claude D’Amours, University of Ottawa, and Prof. Adel Omar Dahmane, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, through a NSERC Engage Grant.

Devbrio in British Columbia

Devbrio will be operating a SkyTEM survey in British Columbia. SkyTEM has been awarded a competitive Geoscience BC contract for an airborne magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical survey in the Peace Region. The Peace Project is a collaborative effort that will help to increase the understanding of surface and groundwater resources in the Peace Region. Peace Project partners include the BC Oil and Gas Commission, the BC Oil and Gas Research and Innovation Society, Conoco Phillips Canada, Progress Energy Canada Ltd., the Province of British Columbia, and the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT).
