Archer’s unique SPACE® imaging and measurement platform utilizes ground-breaking ultrasonic techniques to enable true spatial understanding of the downhole environment. A multi-element transducer, operated as a phased array, and advanced signal and image processing algorithms combine to produce high-resolution 2D and 3D rendered images.

Archer provides a suite of tools designed specifically to visualize and measure the wellbore environment through the use of ground-breaking ultrasound imaging technology.

Our SPACE® imaging platform comprises a range of unique phased array ultrasonic transducers using advanced scanning techniques to produce both 2- and 3-dimensional images, along with precise dimensional measurements. The use of phased array technology means there are no moving parts, and the tools can operate in all completion and produced liquids.

Through Archer’s specially developed adaptive high-speed telemetry system, real-time imagery of the downhole environment is available at surface, allowing effective understanding and improved decision making.
