High-density data is the key to high resolution seismic imaging. Gathering that data on land presents unique challenges and all too often there’s a fine balance to be had between cost, logistics, and survey density, in addition to the difficulty of working on complex terrains.


That’s where the STRYDE Nimble System™ can help. We’ve developed it specifically to help you conduct:

2D seismic surveys in complex terrains and remote locations.

Node charge and harvesting system

Node charge and harvesting system

We know that time and cost are critical during surveys, which is why our systems are designed to let you rotate large numbers of nodes simultaneously.

The STRYDE Nimble System™ is made up of up to 6 "Nest" cases and a "System" case:

  • Each Nest case can harvest 90 nodes and fully recharge depleted nodes in under four hours.
  • A single Nest case can rotate at least 540 nodes a day, based on a 24-hour shift.
  • Up to 6 Nest cases can be connected to a single System case to allow for simultaneous handling of 540 nodes and a rotation of at least 3,000 nodes a day.
Magazine strips and trays

Magazine strips and trays

Node transportation and handling is easy, thanks to our custom-built Magazine Strips.

Each Strip holds 10 nodes and at 300g per Strip (excluding nodes) they’re incredibly lightweight and can be connected to create a tray of 90 noes for efficient handling, transportation, and storage.

Navigator tablets

Navigator tablets

Our Navigator Tablet contains our field positioning system helps you easily locate every receiver point and initialise the nodes in the field to deploy and retrieve nodes in the most efficient way possible

Some benefits of using the tablet include:

  • Reduces the need for pre-deployment surveying
  • Removes the need for heavy line preparation
  • Reduced crew numbers
  • Optimises node deployment and retrieval time
Deployment/retrieval backpacks and node planting devices

Deployment/retrieval backpacks and node planting devices

We have designed our rugged, aluminium-framed backpack for hassle-free node deployment and retrieval in both simple and complex terrains.

Each backpack allows a single operator to carry up to 90 nodes, a navigator tablet, initialisation device and can be customised to work with your own RTK systems.

Initialisation Device

Initialisation Device

Our Initialisation Device™ used alongside the Navigator Tablet helps you communicate with your nodes out in the field.

At just 200g, the Initialisation Device’s lightweight design means it can be carried by hand or clipped to our custom-made STRYDE backpacks for hands-free operation. For greatest efficiency, 4 Initialisation Devices can be simultaneously charged with 70 nodes in the Nest Case.

The benefits of choosing STRYDE for your next land seismic project

Reduced project lifecycle cost

STRYDE Nodes™ are compact and affordable. This means reduced outlay on receiver equipment, faster layout and retrieval using fewer field crew and vehicles, and less line clearing

Ccac05ea c34d 4d9e bb73 9d0de48697e9 STRYDE Icon Improved Image Quality

Improved image quality

STRYDE allows users to achieve a significantly greater trace density for any given budget, leading to a significant uplift in seismic image quality

C9b37bb1 e9ba 42e6 87ae fb71b43a37ed STRYDE Icon Low Environ Footprint

Lower environmental footprint

Environmentally damaging line clearing is eliminated, since equipment can be hand carried. You also need far fewer vehicles, reducing CO2 emissions and land disruption

Improved HSSE

The lightweight design of the nodes means you need fewer people in the field, reduced driving and line clearing - minimising exposure to HSE risk and reducing costs
