It is “an intuitive software that acts as the central hub for visibility and management of the seismic program that includes support for visualization, QC, data management, reporting and analytics.”
The Nautiz X6 devices connect wirelessly to specialized field software to check field status QC. The information confirms nodes deployed in the field are operating properly, and the crew can proceed with data acquisition.
A leader in the land seismic technology industry
The company is rightfully proud of its reputation as a leader in the land seismic technology industry, building a world class flexible, rugged and reliable land seismic acquisition system. They strive to develop solutions that satisfy their customers, which they found possible using the Nautiz X6 ultra-rugged phablet.
