Among our company's priorities are the design and manufacturing of geophysical instruments and data processing/interpretation software.
Our 1998 multifunction electrical prospecting instrument called "MARY" (Russian abbreviation) was our first immersion into instrumentation production. It preserved the national traditions of equipment-making with our wealth of practical experience and the latest achievements of microelectronics. The resulting unit quickly turned into a must-have meter among Russian geophysical industry. As of now, we are manufacturing "MARY-24", the 4th generation of MARY receivers.
In 2002 the Nord-West launched the production of our first "Astra-100" generator. Astra is an transmitter for CSEM as well as for DC and IP methods. The 3d generation of Astra-100 generators went into serial production from 2005, with output voltage increased up to 400 Volts. We are aiming at building yet a more powerful generator in the nearest future.
Our most recent instrumentation product is an 8-channels receiver "IMVP-8" developed for frequency- and time-domain inducted polarization (IP) measurements. It can also be used for all kind of DC techniques as well as for FD CSEM.
Besides the instruments production we develop specialized software packages
for EM data processing, editing, analysis and quantitative interpretation. All the software run under MS Windows, have friendly user interface and provide lots of functions and capabilities.
