The ASEG’s Technical Standards Committee is responsible for implementing industry wide standards to aid in data transfer and data quality.
1. Carnamah Radiometrics Test Range (WA)
The objective of this work is to define areas for overflying by radiometric survey aircraft in order to standardise the response of signals recorded in different aircraft using different recording equipment.
2. Kauring Airborne Gravity test range (WA)
The Kauring airborne gravity test site provides a location for benchmarking the capabilities of airborne gravity (AG), airborne gravity gradiometer (AGG) and other airborne sensing systems. The site is located approximately 100 kilometres east of Perth, Western Australia, is free of low level flight restrictions, has minimal human infrastructure and hosts gentle rolling topography. Significant gravity and magnetic anomalies have been defined within the Kauring test site by detailed ground and airborne surveys.
3. EM Test Ranges (WA)
SGC (Southern Geoscience) supplies dataset for two EM test ranges: Forrestania & Nepean. The targets are different and cover ground typical of the WA Goldfields. The sites have discrete small sulphide orebodies which are particularly useful for systems used in base metal exploration than must detect deep conductors in a conductive earth. They have been surveyed by a different mix of systems.
