The Carlson Rodded Boretrack is offered at a discounted price through September 30, the company reported. The offer includes the Boretrak probe, handheld PDA with the Boretrak Mobile Android software preloaded, a neckstrap and PDA cover, a transit briefcase, and P3D Windows processing software.

For the mining space, the Rodded Boretrak, a borehole-deviation surveying system, can be used in cast blasting, exploration and drilling, the company reported. The Boretrak software for Android provides 3D data of a monitored borehole, allowing an operator to view the path and correct drilling as needed. Data gathered can be georeferenced and related to a local coordinate system to compare recently recorded data with historical data.

Carlson leadership described the discount as a rare opportunity to improve site productivity.
