Frequently asked questions
Yes, you can both rent or purchase the Lightning.
We develop our own vibrator control software, called flexsweep. With flexsweep you can easily adjust the parameters of your sweep e.g. frequency range, force, taper and type of sweep. You can even upload your own designed sweep.
The Lightning contains accelerometers on the baseplate and reaction mass. This is to estimate ground force measuring accelerations on base plate and reaction mass for weighted sum ground force control.
