Falcon technology, incorporating the world's most sensitive and highest resolution airborne gravity system in conjunction with high quality magnetics, is now becoming available for general use in the oil and gas exploration sector. Falcon surveys are useful for a wide range of applications in the sector ranging from reconnaissance geological mapping to detailed mapping of structures and intrusives. The Falcon airborne gravity gradiometers are the only AGGs designed and developed for airborne prospecting. This fit-for-purpose design is the reason for the high sensitivity and resolution; it also provides unique features for survey design and quality analysis.
