HMS-620 Bubble Gun Seismic Systems

Portable, Low Frequency, Acoustic Sub - Bottom Seismic Systems

The HMS-620 Bubble GunTM systems use low-frequency acoustic signals to provide superior signal penetration vertically through coarse sand, gravel tills, and other difficult-to-penetrate sediments. HMS-620 Single Source  Ideal for Small Boat or Inland Surveys HMS-620D Dual Source  Higher Source Level, Greater Penetration HMS-620LF Low Frequency Source  Wide 20 – 1700 Hz Energy Spectrum  Ideal for Multi-Channel Reflection Surveys
