The growing demand for energy worldwide is leading geoscientists to find better ways to accurately predict where oil is located and decide how it can be removed safely. Both the oil & gas and mining industries are investing heavily in smarter, more cost effective methods for streamlining seismic data operations on land and sea. Leading seismic recording companies are now turning to cable-free autonomous nodes that are capable of logging reliable high quality seismic data.
The Seismic Recording Challenge
Before seismic recording companies are able to successfully transition away from traditional cable-based telemetry systems to autonomous nodal technology they must first solve several difficult challenges.
First, finding a reliable solution for recording accurate time and location-referenced data must be considered. The cable-based system offers real-time access to the seismic data being recorded where as with autonomous nodal technology the data is only accessible once the unit has been retrieved. Next, when deploying thousands of independent recording units in dense urban areas, rural settings, extreme climates, rough terrain and underwater, the consistent reception of GPS signals can become problematic. Each individual unit must be able to receive signals from GPS satellites, regardless of unit orientation.
We will be exhibiting at the Iridium Partner Conference January 21-25, 2013 in Panama City, Panama. If you are an attending Iridium partner we invite you to stop by our booth and get to know more about us.
We plan to exhibit three of our top selling helical antennas and a newly developed patch antenna, all of which are built on our proprietary Maxtena Helicore© technology.
You’re surfing the Web on your smartphone, you find an interesting link, and you click it, only to realize that the site is not formatted for your device. We’ve all been there. In this day and age though, with our smartphones permanently glued to our hands, shouldn’t companies be utilizing the opportunity to deliver a positive website interaction on any mobile device? We think so, and we are pleased to announce that our website has now been optimized for mobile devices. The mobile site enables users to access product and service information, request a quote, download datasheets or submit a question all in a format that is easily viewed on a smartphone or tablet. If they plan to frequent the mobile site they also have the option to add the Maxtena app to their home screen for easy one-touch return access.
With the growing relevance of mobile sites in the world today, it was vital that our web team launch a version of the Maxtena website designed exclusively for mobile access.
