Dual channel seismic acquisition
The GeoSuite Acquisition software and the Mini-Trace II hardware have been developed in order to fulfill our own demand for ultra hi-res data acquisition and online processing.
GeoSuite Acquisition features a synchronous recording mode that allows to record seismic data from two independent sources at the same time. Thanks to the advanced trigger programmer it is possible to drive the two sources without the risk of interferences.
Dual channel acquisition represents a cost-effective solution to improve the horizontal resolution and / or the signal to noise ratio. Moreover, the software can assist the end user during both survey planning and setup and post-processing workflow.
GeoSuite Acquisition has a powerful GIS based navigation tool, making it a very cheap standalone solution for small surveys. It's navigation input can use standard NMEA 0183 GPS receiver, but it can also be configured to received the positioning data generated by a third party navigation system.
Thanks to its complete CRS database with customizable entries, it is possible to work with local projection and / or perform projections on the fly.
The survey map window features a built-in worldwide coastlines database and it can be extended with third party cultural data (google earth files, surfaces, bathymetry, etc).
Powerful processing tools
GeoSuite Acquisition features a wide set of tools for both online seismic processing, like automatic swell filtering and seabed tracking. Online processing doesn't affect recorded data, so there is no risk of data loss.
GeoSuite Acquisition also provides a powerful realtime layback correction tool that can precisely calculate the positions of the seismic source, the receivers group and the current CDP using just the source-receiver geometry and the position of the GPS antenna.
Extended logging capabilities
GeoSuite Acquisition records every data input in RAW mode. This means that the recorded data are stored in the exact way they were received: no one of the online processing tools will affect the recorded seismic data, and the positioning information will be stored also in separated log ASCII-based format files in order to perform any required post-acquisition processing elaboration.
Furthermore, a dedicated log file stores detailed information regarding the overall acquisition process including commands, alarms, notifications and every relevant event.
Complete interoperabilty with any seismic processing/interpretation software
GeoSuite Acquisition records seismic data in standard SEG-Y format. This makes it possible to use whatever processing and interpretation software after the acquisition.
GeoSuite Acquisition also provides seamless integration with GeoSuite AllWorks. Exporting the recorded data is a one-click task that allows to start immediately the processing and interpreting of the acquired data.
