Precise X, Y, and Z coordinates directly from the nodes themselves. Each NuSeis nodal recorder logs GNSS satellite phase and range data to allow differential processing (DGPS) yielding sub meter accuracy X, Y, and Z coordinates directly from each deployed node. Don’t buy nodes that can’t tell you exactly where they were in X, Y, Z space, or nodes that require an external survey to log the deployed location. Those systems are prone to error and add unnecessary work and cost. Look forward to no more survey, and no more geometry errors.
“GTI’s NuSeis™ NRU are designed for automated handling.
GTI in conjunction with our automation sponsors are committed to extensively reducing man-power risk and injury and environmental profile by using modern industrial automation to deploy and retrieve the nodes in harsh environments.
GTI’s commitment to automation is paving the way to dramatically reducing head count, reducing environmental prolife, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, all the while increasing channel counts to 100’s of thousands, increasing sampling to a billion traces per square kilometers, and to deliver highly differentiated geophysical data delivered with unprecedented seismic operational efficiencies, at lower costs, and to enhance earth imaging quality for illuminating and monitoring and extracting the earth’s resources.“
NuSeis Stealth. More and more customers want their nodes planted in the ground with little or no surface exposure. This stealth approach to receiver deployments can not only provide you better data because the node is not picking up any material surface wind or mechanical noise, it also enables the sensors to go undetected by local populations. Recently on a project in Europe, NuSeis nodes went undisturbed and unnoticed by villagers while the competitors’ nodes were stolen, chopped up and vandalized, costing a great deal of data degradation, repair costs, and costly crew downtime.
NuSeis = Strength and Reliability. Our engineers have driven over our nodes with trucks and vibrators, have had when field fires passed over field deployed NRUs, have submerged them to over 2000 ft of water depth pressure, and our NuSeis NRUs did not fail. Don’t accept cheap plastic nodes that will have moisture and dirt destroying node life and reliability. Buy long life asset, ultra-strong NuSeis!
Near Real Time QC. NuSeis reliability is extraordinary. NuSeis customers have consistently achieved less than 1% data losses on seismic surveys. At the same time, they opportunistically obtain health and status from the nodes effortlessly! NuSeis NRUs broadcast “health and status” twice per second which can be opportunistically captured in the field and uploaded through NuWeb to NuCenter. Don’t accept dumb nodes that don’t provide real time status.
Another extraordinary single attribute of the NuSeis technology is our amazing EarthGrip ground coupling. While our competitors lay their equipment on the ground or dig holes to place their nodes at or below the ground surface. With NuSeis you simply “Solution the soil” by laterally compressing the small ground cavity, and then you press the NuSeis formfactor into the ground! The lateral forces provide a tight frictional bond that enables more optimal signal (ground displacement) transfer into the geophone and prohibits mechanical resonance, so you record much less surface noises. NuSeis naturally and consistently provides exceptional data every time. NuSeis deployment is also perfectly environmentally friendly as the soil elasticity closes the hole back after removing the NRU, leaving no environmental disturbance.
Make NuSeis YourSeis! Choose a NuSeis formfactor that is optimal for your upcoming project. The NuSeis modular electronic eCab inside our NRU weighs 58 grams and can be removed from one NRU and inserted into another formfactor in 2 minutes. This enables NuSeis operators to mechanically transform their NuSeis nodal technology on a project-by-project basis into the formfactor that enables peak operating performance in every terrain and optimal EarthGrip coupling in every surface environment. This also enables our customers to maximize asset utilization, avoiding unnecessary shipping costs, and ensuring the optimal geophone, the optimal battery duration, and the Lexan NRU housing that optimizes ground coupling and delivers peak operating performance. Shipping only the 58-gram eCab also greatly reduces shipping cost for repair and return. When you have a seismic project challenge, let GTI provide you a NuSeis custom solution for your specific project environment and operating methodology. Make NuSeis YouSeis!
Internal Geophone Vs External Connectors. NuSeis nodes can be quickly and inexpensively converted from an internal geophone to an external sensor or sensor array. In 60 seconds, you can swap the NRU’s internal geophone lower end to a KCK connector lower end.
NuSeis Navigation. The NuSeis EcoSystem includes “NuSite” navigation which eliminates the need to survey and stake receiver points. NuSite lowers cost, reduces field tracks, and minimizes environmental impact by eliminating receiver stakes and monumentation that are costly and wasteful. You will never have to “trash a line” if you didn’t stake it in the first place.
Broad Instantaneous Dynamic Range and Low Noise Floor. High quality analog to digital circuitry is fundamental to high quality seismic data recording. GTI spares no expense for its NuSeis technology when selecting the state-of-the-art. Maxim A/D converter (MAX11216) with 148 dB of instantaneous dynamic range. Others buy dated chips that run with degraded quality in low power mode, but the results are not the same.
