From Bay Geophysical website

In October 2012, Bay acquired the Wireless Seismic RT System 2 seismic acquisition system for the purpose of increasing field operation efficiency for 3-D seismic acquisition.  The Wireless Seismic system is a cable-free acquisition system with real-time data monitoring and recording.  In January 2013, Bay doubled the number of Wireless Seismic acquisition channels for acquiring 3-D seismic grids.  Since then, Bay has acquired 3-D grids with its Wireless Seismic system enhancing field operations and efficiency while maintaining a superior product for its clients.  Read More.


Real-Time Wireless vs. Cable System

Bay conducted a comparison test between the Wireless Seismic RT System 2 and the ARAM Aries II acquisition systems.  To see comparison test, click here.
