Wireless Seismic’s RT System 2 was designed from the ground up to eliminate problems associated with traditional cabled systems, while at the same time eradicating the barriers associated with cable-less systems.
As survey costs skyrocket due to labor-intensive systems, crew logistics play an ever-increasing role in profitability. That is why the RT System 2 incorporates an integrated accelerometer and start-up self-tests that enable sub-minute, cable and handheld free unit deployment. Increasing the productivity of the most frequently performed tasks, such as layout and pickup, goes directly to your bottom line.
The self-organizing architecture of the RT System 2 mirrors the connectivity of cabled systems, but eliminates layout and data input errors. By enabling this technology, crew errors do not manifest themselves as station busts; they are identified immediately before being incorrectly assigned invalid line and station locations.
No-permit zones and large obstacles, like rivers and ravines, are no longer accompanied by perimeter layouts or dangerous cable crossings. The proprietary radio technology of the RT System 2 negotiates these impediments by auto-power leveling to suit the environment, with the added benefit that unit power consumption is minimized.
Incorporating a purpose-built telemetry protocol enables the RT System 2 to apply unique algorithms to work around unit problems while crewmen attend to the fault. Algorithms such as Skip Healing, Backstop, and DataSafeTM keep the system operational during times of trouble.
A state-of-the-art user interface that scales from a laptop to a full-blown, high productivity system lets you choose your system footprint based on channel requirements.
SourceLinkTM Integration for High Productivity Vibroseis Management Support
The industry has seen a growth in the fold of coverage and density of source points in the large seismic surveys acquired in the Middle East and North Africa over recent years. In order to maximize productivity, techniques have been developed that massively increase the number of vibrators deployed on these surveys. This increase in vibrator numbers has been met with a commensurate increase in the number and complexity of radio communications between the recorder and the vibrators. Without proper management tools, there is a significant potential for disruptive message collisions between "ready" and "Post Sweep Service" (PSS) messages from the vibrators and "start" messages from the recorder.
Seismic Source Company's SourceLinkTM software is a radio communication management tool which integrates with the company's existing Universal Encoder II (UEII) hardware platform to initiate, fire, trigger, or monitor the vibrators and to pass these events to the recorder. Wireless Seismic has partnered with Seismic Source to integrate RT System 2 to SourceLink and UEII to give our users the capability of running complex Vibroseis techniques, such as Distance Separated Simultaneous Slip Sweep (DS4) or Independent Simultaneous Sweeps (ISS). The Source Queue Manager (SQM) is the window withing RT System 2 where users can manage source points and their template state. In this integration, the SQM is controlled by the SourceLink software, running either on the client PC or on a separate Windows®-based machine. There is only one place to enter parameters, eliminating the need to set duplicate parameters in two separate systems.
