The case for a nimble Node, towards a new land seismic receiver system with unlimited channels

The case for a nimble Node, towards a new land seismic receiver system with unlimited channels

This paper outlines the need for a receiver-side technology shift to overcome many of the existing hurdles that hinder the economic acquisition of quality land seismic, such as significant HSE exposure, limited channel count, difficult terrain access, long survey durations and high survey costs.

A Comparative Field Trial of a New Nimble Node and Cabled Systems in a Desert Environment

A Comparative Field Trial of a New Nimble Node and Cabled Systems in a Desert Environment

STRYDE's new nimble node is tested in the desert compared to cabled systems. The system offers the smallest and lightest fully autonomous node for land seismic acquisition, barely bigger than a conventional geophone.
