GEOSPACE

TECTERRA’s Geospace has a wide range of electronics test equipment and end-use geomatics technology that can be leased by Canadian companies engaged in the development and manufacture of new technologies.  Our goal is to assist companies by providing highly subsidized lease rates on this equipment, which will enable companies to preserve capital in critical growth stages of their company.
In addition to a comprehensive inventory of equipment, the lab offers rapid prototyping services with our industrial 3D printers, the Fortus 400MC FDM 3D Printer and the HP Jet Fusion 580 3D Printer.  Both of these printers offer high-accuracy and very strong parts that are suitable for a wide variety of applications.
Here are some examples of how our equipment has been used:
  • Development of new GNSS receivers
  • Field trials with a ground penetrating radar
  • Developing algorithms for unmanned systems navigation
  • Using thermal cameras to develop algorithms to identify heat loss in homes
  • Design and test of electronics systems using our Tektronix MDO4104-6 Mixed Domain Oscilloscope

3D Printing

Print production grade prototypes with our HP Multi-Jet Fusion 580 Full-Colour printer.  Print in PA12 material at 0.04″ resolution for strong and very detailed prototypes.

Lidar

Generate small or large scale 3D point clouds with our wide-variety of airborne and terrestrial-based scanners.

Test Equipment

We have a variety of electronics test equipment to help with product design/troubleshooting.

GNSS Simulation and Measurement

Our GNSS simulators are easy to use, scenario-based instruments that combine a powerful, feature-rich platform with industry-leading value and affordability for any  requirement for GPS, Beidou, Galileo or GLONASS testing.

Photogrammetry

Measure and record complex 2D and 3D motion fields for recovering the exact position of surface points.

Thermal Cameras

Our airborne and land-based thermal cameras have multiple uses including building inspection, spotting fires, materials classification or mechanical/electrical troubleshooting.

Inertial Systems

An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is an electronic device that measures and reports a body’s specific force, angular rate, and sometimes the magnetic field surrounding the body, using a combination of accelerometers and gyroscopes, sometimes also magnetometers.

Radar

Use our ground penetrating radar (GPR) to image the subsurface for your spatial project.

Unmanned Systems

Perform lidar, photogrammetric and thermal surveys using one of our unmanned systems.
