We started the day off by selecting the 6 Foot Antenna to go with our adventure along with the USA Discovery Control unit. The 6 foot Antenna is equipped with (8) High Sampling Sensors that are capable of traveling high rates of speed.
To give you an example, we were given a tip regarding an old sunken structural bridge at the bottom of the lake (approx. 100 feet or more) We ventured on a (1) Row Scan traveling at a constant speed of approx 30 MPH. We then started the scan allowing the sensors to ground balance to the surrounding environment variables (i.e. the water's surface area.) We set our software settings to a length of 200 (one of the highest settings of length tested so far). As we were scanning we noticed mass changes in the software's 3D imaging contours, and the sensors were responding according to plan. When the scan was finished at the 200 length from within the software, we then took the scan and rotated the image to show more detail from a lateral perspective then to an oblique mode perspective.
The Flat rotation of the image portrayed a very high detailed image regarding the sensors response of the highly-mineralized silt at the bottom of the lake, then continued to a sunken perspective of the bridge that we were looking for. From that point, I then turned the image to the "Oblique" angle in the software to show a more adept view in 3D still containing the same colors based on the data received.
At this point in the day, the weather was hot but we still continued to make the most of this technological breakthrough of equipment and ease of use. We ventured further across the lake to start the second scan of our adventure. We then set the software this time to a smaller size of scanning area, (50) sped up to a constant speed similar to the bridge scan, started the software once again to cause the ground balancing to take effect and began scanning. To our amazement when the scan completed, we noticed a huge difference in the software that we hadn't seen yet. We saw the values in the image (blue) as a bottom of the lake channel that we were traveling upon turn into a high reading of magnetic qualities. (Red) We couldn't quite explain by definition what it was that we saw. To our amazement while capturing photos of the trip through the lake channel, we noticed the mineralized surrounding hillsides that seemed to continue from the left side of the channel to the right side and guess what? This high concentration was that of very highly mineralized iron-like soil, silt and rock that continued right under the boat and directly under our sensors.
Once again, in the midst of testing and development, we have determined again that the uses of the USA never ceases, first by proving a tip of a fallen structural bridge decades ago, does really exist, to a highly concentrated mineralized belt that could prove useful for precious elements mining. And at the end of it all, as sophisticated as this equipment is, the ease of use was beyond amazing. Enough so that we soon agreed we would be back. This time bringing more advancement of equipment and more gas for the boat.USA Home Page | Polaris Utility Scans
