Wireless Seismic, Inc. announces RT3

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Ultra-high channel count seismic recording system featuring Next Generation Radio Technology.

Wireless Seismic, Inc. (WSI), the leading innovator of real-time and cable-free seismic data acquisition systems for the oil and gas industry, announced the launch of RT3-an ultra-high channel count, onshore seismic recording system featuring WSI's next-generation radio technology.

RT3 addresses the growing market need to acquire much denser onshore seismic surveys. Unlike the ever-increasing list of blind nodal systems, however, RT3 allows the user to interactively manage an entire spread of 250,000+ recording channels, in real time. For example, the ability to put the entire spread to sleep, to preserve battery life, requires only a single command from the control center-a feature not possible with blind nodal systems. Furthermore, RT3 eliminates the laborious tasks, required by blind nodal systems, of manual data collection and manual data transcription, by deploying a new radio telemetry architecture that transmits all of the seismic data to the central recorder, up to seven (7) times faster than traditional cabled systems.

A typical RT3 configuration consists of tens of thousands of ultra-lightweight and ultra-low power recording units (Motes) that communicate, via radios, to a grid of Ground Relay Units (GRUs) that, in turn, transmit the seismic data to the fully interactive central recording system. RT3 incorporates all of the advanced industry-proven features of RT2, including real-time data QC and Hybrid Radio Telemetry. The RT3 radio network is completely self-organizing and automated, requiring minimal resources during initial deployment.

'RT3 is game-changing technology that allows seismic contractors to finally decommission their old cabled systems and replace them with a real-time, cable-free system,' stated Mick Lambert, President and CEO of WSI. 'RT3's significantly reduced weight and cost will make ultra-high channel count projects much more cost-effective, especially for high-density projects outside of open desert terrains.'

WSI will be exhibiting RT3 at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) annual conference in Houston, Texas, September 24-27, 2017.
