Improved eBird

Marine Technology Reporter

Kongsberg Seatex, a fully owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, has now given users of the eBird Seismic Streamer Control System the ability to equip SmartWing instrumentation with two additional features: a compass and a GNSS receiver. eBird is a novel bird concept for lateral, vertical and roll streamer control in marine seismic acquisition that enables fault tolerant and efficient multi streamer steering by employing a wide range of innovative and patented technological solutions. The innovative approach of placing a GNSS receiver in the wings opens new opportunities for improving the efficiency of an operation, in particular during launch and recovery, but also when running lines.
