E-Spectrum Technologies, a business division of AES and a leading provider
of specialized industrial instrumentation for use in energy exploration and production, was
selected to provide a wireless communications system for the U.S. Department of Energy Deep Trek Program.
E-Spectrum will develop a wireless system based on low frequency electromagnetic (EM) waves to provide wireless down-hole communication capabilities for deep well gas drilling projects. Such a high-temperature EM system will increase the overall effectiveness of deep well drilling activities.
Work on the project is being performed in cooperation with the University of Texas Center for Space Sciences in Austin, Texas.
