Geological Measurements

Different trial measurements were carried out in the northern part of Germany. Goal of these tests was the verification of the HERA-G / HERA-G+ device.

Glacier Measurement

For glaciological purposes and in order to verify the system performance HERA-G / HERA-G+ was tested during airborne measurements over a Glacier in the Swiss alps. A penetration of over 200m and the very high resolution of the system was demonstrated in temperate ice.
