Equipments Details


The High Resolution Optical Televiewer provides a continuous, high resolution, oriented image of the borehole walls using a conventional light source. A unique optical system based on a fisheye lens allows the probe to survey 360 degrees simultaneously. This information is processed in real time to produce a complete ‘unwrapped’ image of the borehole oriented to magnetic north.
