Radio Trigger Module
Radio Synchronizing of Impulse Sources for Seismic Exploration
Wireless Hammer Switch - RTM may be used for wireless synchronization of impulse sources. RTM units have been used with the following sources:

Sledge Hammer (with Hammer switch)

Hydrapulse Weight Drop Units

Nitrogen-charged Weight Drop Units

Air Gun Controller

Master Slave operation - RTM units can be used to synchronized multiple seismic recorders

Master-Slave can use single RTM Encoder with multiple RTM Decoders

RTM decoders can also be used with the following Encoders
- SSC Universal Encoder
- SSC Boom Box Encoder
- Vib Pro TM units
- Shot Pro TM units

Integrated Radio Interface - RTM units can be used with almost any radio
Integrated GPS interface. The source GPS position is sent back to the Encoder
