Data is then captured, on said day(s), using our truck mounted Xenor RC-7 spectrometer, from multiple points, in a grid pattern.  The Xenor RC-7 Unit utilizes the electromagnetic radiation spectrum (Fig. 1) as it disperses a specific pulse length and frequency of radio waves to cause the atmospheric event of any hydrocarbon microseepage to fluoresce.   The truck monitor then shows the active data points as detected by our Xenor RC-7 spectrometer unit, while it records each AVI file of the fluorescing atmospheric events over a hydrocarbon accumulation. (Fig. 2 shows a still frame of the DHA event)  The recorded raw data is then downloaded to our R.E.A.P.* computer which analyzes the density and fluctuation to formulate an image of RAD anomalies. (Fig. 3) This image of RAD anomalies with rated RAD values produces a RAD Map which shows us the best areas for drilling purposes. Our finished product is generated by overlaying the printed RAD Map with other industry standard mapping features onto a USGS 7.5 min. topographical map to pinpoint locations. *In 2004 we contracted with a think tank in Denver and Calgary to write computer processing software that would eliminate most of the human interpretation of the data. The resulting software is based on a 7 algorithm system to produce the necessary maps of the RADs. Fig. 2 Fig. 1 Fig. 3 click thumbnail to enlarge click thumbnail to enlarge
