Everything Emits Energy
It all starts with the premise that everything emits acoustic energy.
Acoustic energy moves through earth, air, and water as elastic waves, radiating outward from the source that created it. And as it moves it interacts with its environment.
Infinite waves. Infinite interaction. Lots of Information.
Power of Seismic Acoustics
It pays to listen to the Earth and exploit these benefits.
Targets can be detected, classified, and tracked even if they are obstructed visually.
360 degree by 360 degree monitoring is persistently maintained 24/7/365.
Thanks to being non-line-of-sight, the buried system is difficult to evade or disable.
Whether one sensor or ten-thousand, one screen is all you need.
Power of SADAR®
Our SADAR® products capitalize on the power of seismic-acoustics for unparalleled performance.
Extending the range to target detection effectively extends time, the time to confirm, the time to react.
Locate & Track
Far far beyond a proximity location, SADAR algorithmically determines a location and its associated uncertainty.
SADAR benefits from self determined high orders of information processing to better classify targets of interest
Easily pass actionable information into a system of systems for alert verification and a layered security approach.
Deriving Simplicity from Complexity
For more than 20 years Quantum has advanced the state of the art in Geophysical Monitoring at scales ranging from global to tactical, and today, along with our parent Geospace, all of our combined experience and expertise has culminated in a singular product platform called SADAR®. SADAR isn’t a sensor. It isn’t an algorithm. SADAR is the pinnacle of tactical seismic-acoustic monitoring that detects, classifies, locates, and tracks Items of Interest, automatically and in real-time, at greater range, accuracy, and minimal uncertainty than ever before.
There is no better way to sample the complex acoustic wavefield than with SADAR. None.
Further, it produces additional information layers that traditional acoustic systems cannot, allowing SADAR to cut through the clutter, automatically, and produce actionable information.
In addition to its intrinsic ability, all of our systems leverage Quantum’s deep experience from gathering an impressive, proprietary library of target signatures. One mission’s target is another mission’s clutter.
The geophysical processing “pipeline” that acquires data and produces information, in real-time, is part of a paradigm we call a Science-Based Data Engine.
Science-Based Data Engine
The paradigm in which Quantum conducts all of its geophysical monitoring development we call a Science-Based Data Engine. While the interactive seismic-acoustic analysis toolkits we have developed these past 20 years are impressively broad and deep, a Science-Based Data Engine is not a toolbox. A Science-Based Data Engine is a system of hardware and software that acquires raw data, processes that data, and presents results to support a mission based on a thorough scientific understanding of the underlying processes that both produce the raw data and transform it into actionable information. The Engine connotation means continuous streams of complex data are processed, always in real-time or near real-time, yet it is capable of simultaneously accommodating operator interaction, integrating human expertise into an operational system of human, machine, and software components.
We've been developing and delivering Geophysical Science-Based Data Engines for 20 years. Today, we are the single point for a complete geophysical solution. We are the OEM of the Sensors, Data Acquisition, Data Analysis, and User Interface systems.
Consists of hardware and software that meets deployment, performance, and lifecycle criteria. This is everything from the sensor to digitizer to quality control to storage. Our parent company, Geospace, is world-class in the manufacturing of these complete systems, whether its a forty thousand channel system deployed a mile underwater or unattended, wireless systems deployed anywhere in the world, we are superior at ensuring the best data are available for analysis.
Consists of the algorithms that, via a formalized processing “pipeline,” perform signal processing on the technical data and information processing on the derived alphanumeric data to produce actionable results. Our capabilities have repeatedly proven to our select customers to not only be the best, but to literally allow for a change in their Concept of Operations.
The power of Acoustics is that thousands of channels monitoring thousands of square miles can literally be reduced to a simple XML string. Thus, we integrate into existing C4 systems with ease, should they exist. Otherwise, our systems offer stratified access into the results, from a straight forward GIS interface or the ability to explore the full Evidence Portfolio of an Event.
Underpinning all of the data acquisition, analysis and user interface is the complete range of software, hardware, and data architectures that accommodate system operation and configuration
