Interference? No Problem.

The ParaTrack Gyro Module (PGM) is designed to extend the capabilities of the ParaTrack System in areas where interference poses operational challenges for magnetic tracking and surveying. Running in conjunction with the ParaTrack Steering Tool, the PGM improves magnetic surface tracking in situations where external interference is present, and adds a gyroscopic compass for extended reach intervals where surface tracking is not available.

The PGM integrates seamlessly with the entire ParaTrack System of tools and software, giving the operator complete flexibility in choosing the tool best suited for each project, or even the differing needs of an individual crossing. The Gyro Module provides precision surveys field-proven to 0.02° of inclination and 0.05° of azimuth with a simple setup and user interface requiring no additional personnel on site. The PGM is effective even in hard-rock environments, with tolerance for high vibration drilling, and requires no lengthy down-hole re-orientations.

Prior to punch-out absolute bit position can be verified via one or more of the multiple surface tracking options offered through the ParaTrack System – at depths of up to 1500′ – more than 10x the depth of competing systems. This independent surface verification is essential for all guidance systems regardless of type, and the ParaTrack System is completely unique in offering this kind of flexibility – all designed, built, and maintained at a single source – the tracking experts at Vector Magnetics.
