In the open plains where vibrators and cable-based systems are commonly used, seismic surveys are relatively straightforward. But in today’s reality, most surveys are occurring in dual-or multi-terrain environments where mixed-source and hybrid system operations are the only way to image the target sufficiently.
In this context, the foothills and plains can pose a real challenge. Deploying cables in the lower elevations and autonomous nodes in the higher altitudes can be as simple as outfitting a crew with two different sets of ground electronics, or can be as difficult as hiring professional climbers to achieve the optimal coverage. Regardless, equipment handling and troubleshooting in higher elevations must be simplified.View Products
INOVA introduces HyperSource, an innovative communication method extends the reach of source operation on large scale 3D seismic surveys. HyperSource is an innovative approach to overcoming current radio technology limitations and is a new feature available in INOVA’s G3i HD cable acquisition system with iX1 acquisition software. HyperSource consists of a hybrid, wired and wireless, communication network available for access by distant source crews on a project operating where logistically convenient for efficient production. In a high productivity vibroseis example this might consist of multiple vibroseis fleets operating within or even beyond the perimeter of the active patch spanning 10’s of kilometers from the recording truck.
