Digital Underground Interface to Facilitate Archaeological Surveys

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–A radar installation with a digital underground interface was granted to Armenia by the courtesy of Prof. Lucy Ter-Manuelian–Faculty of Culture and Armenology–Taft University (Boston). This system can be used for cartography of the earth’s surface–determination of the route of service-lines or other underground structures–Daniel Welch–a research worker of the Archaeological Surveys Center in Boston–said at the meeting with Armenian scholars. The system can be used to check the quality of the roads–bridges and metalworks.

Those participating in the discussion of geophysics took interest in the special technical characteristics of the system–as the radiolocation technologies are widely known and have already been applied for some decades. Among the technical characteristics of interest is an admissible depth of measurement or possible use of the device in conditions of the mountainous relief. They positively assessed the built-in computer digital interface which makes it possible to carry out quick and high-quality procession of signals.

According to Professor Lucy Ter-Manuelian–the device will be useful especially during archaeological surveys which are extremely important to Armenia as an ancient country.
