OYO Geospace Introduces Wireless Land Data Acquisition System

OYO Geospace has introduced the Geospace Seismic Recorder (GSR), its new wireless land data acquisition system. The introduction was made during the meeting of the Society of Exploration Geophysicist in San Antonio earlier this week.

The GSR facilitates the recording of very large channel counts. The GSR is available in several configurations targeting the seismic exploration, seismic reservoir and non-seismic emerging markets. The individual cable-free field units are manufactured in 1, 2, 3 and 4 channel capacities. The new system will be available in the first quarter of 2008.

"Our first system introduction for the land data acquisition system market is an exciting event for the company," said Gary D. Owens, OYO Geospace's Chairman, President & CEO. "This new product line provides the company additional ways to generate revenue and profits. We were very encouraged by its reception from the industry during the SEG Meeting," Owens continued.

OYO Geospace designs and manufactures instruments and equipment used by the oil and gas industry in the acquisition and processing of seismic data as well as in reservoir characterization and monitoring activities. The company also designs and manufactures equipment and film for the thermal printing industry worldwide.
