Field Trials

Posted on May 29, 2018 by DET CRC

Geological Survey of South Australia field trial (Eyre Peninsula, 2015-2016).

Extensive successful field trials of the Wireless Sub, AutoSonde and Lab-at-Rig® technologies in field drilling programs with Geoscience Australia/Geological Survey of Victoria (Stavely, 2014), Anglo-American (Oberon, 2014) and with the Geological Survey of South Australia (Eyre Peninsula, 2015-2016).  The trials advanced the technology readiness level of these technologies by one level, generally from ‘Prototype System’ to ‘Demonstration System’.  The latter being a level higher than that to which the DET CRC originally intended to develop its technologies.
