Quantum is an all-in-one nodal system that represents a balanced approach between low cost and high performance. Each node uses wireless technology for status QC providing stakeholders confidence in recording success and reducing the number of personnel and vehicles needed.

Additionally, Quantum comes with an option to enable Accuseis, a digital technology with a MEMS seismic sensor that supports wider bandwidth and higher fidelity delivering the highest quality seismic data.

Quantum’s unique node design allows easy planting to ensure sensor coupling with the ground surface and full burial, which reduces environmental noise and unwanted disturbance. The node is also offered in a version that supports an external sensor allowing receiver coverage across shallow water bodies. These along with all other Quantum nodes are operated from a single user-friendly interface through INOVA’s iX1 control system.

Faster Deployment

Faster Deployment

No need to connect an external battery or geophone string, and no magnetic swiping to power on the unit. Simply twist, verify the status via LED indicator, plant upright and go. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Easy QC

Easy QC

HyperQ™ enables Quantum nodes to communicate wirelessly to a central location and send operational status of the unit.

Battery Management

Battery Management

50 days of continuous recording or 100 days of 12-hour recording -our ultra-low power design makes life easier for your crew. When a unit needs to be charged,you simply place it in the charging rack and within 3 hours, you’re back in business.

A Better Image

A Better Image

Quantum offers high dynamic range (up to 127 dB). The dynamic range of an instrument indicates the strongest and weakest signals that can be recorded without distortion. With Quantum, an analog signal is almost immediately received and converted to digital at the time of recording. This improves the signal-to-noise ratio, reduces the risk of ambient noise contamination on the record, and provides the necessary range to capture high-quality broadband data.

G3i HD Cable System Integration

G3i HD Cable System Integration

Two systems, one dataset -beautiful harmony. Say goodbye to the frustration of managing two recording systems for the same survey. INOVA’s G3i HD and Quantum are fully integrated so you can deliver one seamless SEG-Y or SEG-D dataset to your clients. The onboard iX1 software in all Inova recording systems allows you to manage the entire spread, and reflects both cable and nodal ground units on a single, intuitive display. Observers have full command and control over operations, so they can quickly QC and manage data, sources and spread diagnostics in one location.

Mixed Source

Mixed Source

It’s common to have surveys over a large area where terrain varies and dictates the use of vibs or dynamite. Quantum supports both energy sources and offers an intuitive source QC functionality through the onboard iX1 software.

Quantum External Connector

Quantum External Connector

The Quantum external connector extends operations across various terrains by supporting 6x2 array, single high-sensitivity geophones and single high-sensitivity marshphones.

HPVS Support

Quantum powered by iX1 software supports most high productivity vibroseis survey designs including dynamic slip-sweep, distance separated sweeping (DS3and DS4), independent sweeping (ISS) and HFVS.

Vib Logistics Management

Running several fleets of vibrators simultaneously poses significant HSE and source management challenges. Being able to visualize the locations of the vibrators on the spread requires onboard navigation systems that communicate directly with the recorder. Inova vibrators can be outfitted with Connex Viband Vib Pro HD which are fully integrated and supported in the Quantum central recorder.


INOVA's ultra-lite system comprises of a download + charge rack and a laptop based computer running the iX1 central system software.

With a capacity of 16 nodes per rack, the system can support up to 300 channels, ideal for small channel count systems. In addition, utilizing INOVA'S QC application for Android OS, status checks can be performed on units deployed in the field with ease.


INOVA's lite system comprises of an SPM LITE running the iX1 software and Quantum standard download racks with capacity of 40 units per rack.

The system can support up to 3000 channels, ideal for smaller 3D operations. In addition, utilizing INOVA'S QC application for Android OS, status checks can be performed on units deployed in the field with ease.


A standard system comprises of a common acquisition hardware platform with G3i HD including the Seismic Processing Module (SPM). Data download and Transcription is performed with TPM Rack , comprising of Transcription Processing Module, large memory capacity and up to 528 TB of data storage.

A Combined Processing Module (CPM) offers the SPM and TPM as a single system.
