Applied Acoustics Sparker

Acoustics Sparker

Applied Acoustic Engineering's Squid sparker is a powerful and versatile energy source used for marine refraction and multi-channel seismic reflection surveys.

The seismic source is created by the sudden release of high voltage electrical energy to the sparker which forms a plasma pulse as it is discharged in sea water. The collapsing plasma forms a seismic pulse in the water. The sparker is fired electrically and the seismic pulse is highly repeatable.

The small size and weight make the sparker ideal for shallow marine work.

Dimension: 800 - 150mm3
Weight: 3 kg
Power range: 300 - 500 J
Maximum power: 1000 J
