Seismic Blaster System – BOOM BOX III (Autonomous Mode)

The Boom Box 3 is a New Generation of Seismic Blasters. These units can use GPS timing synchronization for the firing of the shots. This allows the shooters to shoot in Autonomous mode without any VHF Radio communication with the Central Recording System. Individual «Time Slots» are allocated to prevent multiple shooters from firing at the same time. All of the shot information is saved on a non-volatile CF card for later download and analysis.

A built in Wi-Fi unit allows all of the data to be viewed and saved on a small notepad tablet or even a cell phone. This allows critical redundant storage of the shot time (micro second accuracy), up hole times, and GPS position of the shot. The Boom Box 3 Autonomous unit includes a standard Boom Box 3 plus a removable battery pack with built in GPS and an additional «Safety» fire button. This package provides a complete, compact, light weight and rugged blaster unit.
