the complete package
Our transition zone nodal positioning equipment provides you with the complete package for accurately and efficiently locating seismic nodes during deployment and when landed on the seabed in shallow water up to 500 metres depth. Compatible acoustic release equipment also enables recovery at the end of each survey.
Fast and Accurate Deployment
Marine seismic companies strive to maximise the efficiency of acquisition operations by ensuring that nodes are deployed to their correct seabed locations as quickly as possible so that active shooting can commence without delay. Choosing the right acoustic positioning system delivers significant efficiency savings by providing measurements at a high frequency commensurate with the deployment vessel’s speed of advance, whilst also ensuring high positional accuracy is maintained at all times. The ability to interrogate multiple acoustic transponders in one operation without compromising on performance is a distinct benefit for high tempo positioning operations.
Simple, Rugged and Affordable
Positioning transponders and acoustic releases must be easy to attach, simple to operate, rugged against harsh operating conditions and designed for high volume applications where sensitivity to cost of ownership is paramount.
Vessel based range-only or full USBL transceivers must be easy to install on both dedicated deployment vessels and when switching between vessels of opportunity and must provide interfaces for seamless operation by third party navigation systems which are typically found on marine seismic node deployment and acquisition vessels.
