The VE464 is a powerful Vibrator Digital Control System, using a fully auto-adaptive servomechanism. It enables the use of advanced Vibroseis techniques such as:
The VE464 has reached an even higher level of flexibility, offering dedicated sweeps, by programming a different sweep per vibrator in a given fleet.
One of the major advancement of the VE464 is the use of TDMA Radio (Time Division Multiple Access) instead of the standard VHF transmissions (still an option of the VE464). TDMA Radio, due to its full duplex protocol, increases the capacities of the system allowing:
In addition, TDMA Radio has its own integrated GPS system used for both synchronizing the sweeps and tracking the vibrators with differential corrections for guidance options. External satellite DGPS and Glonass receivers can still be used with VE464 for integrated tracking of source positions
