the world. The new joint data library will comprise nearly a million kilometers of uniquely complementary data, including many areas of genuine broadband seismic, that have substantial opportunity for integration and reimaging," the companies said.The companies said that ION's latest imaging technology and PGS' broadband 2D GeoStreamer offering, would lead to the production of "enhanced deliverables with higher resolution and greater spatial coverage, offering deeper insights and more reliable pre-stack attributes for exploration screening on a global basis."New York-listed

ThayerMahan, Geo SubSea Partner for Seabed Surveys

autonomous maritime security solutions company ThayerMahan, Inc. announced it has executed a cooperative partnering agreement with marine geophysical surveying, data analysis and reporting firm Geo SubSea, LLC.ThayerMahan CEO Mike Connor stated, “ThayerMahan is bringing best-in-class seabed imaging technology to customers in government, industry and academia that provides a very efficient way to image and map the ocean floor and undersea infrastructure. We are proud to be partnering with Geo SubSea because they are experts in turning seabed monitoring technology into the products needed to ensure

Sunken Submarine USS Stickleback Found

, lost in nearly 11,000 feet of water 62 years ago, was discovered by veteran ocean explorer and Tiburon Subsea CEO Tim Taylor and his "Lost 52 Project" team equipped with a combination of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and advanced photogrammetry imaging technology.In nine years, Taylor and his team have discovered six U.S. submarines and amassed the most comprehensive historical archaeological records to date.The WWII submarine Stickleback, commissioned on March 29, 1945, was deployed to Guam and began her first war patrol on August 6 when she departed

US Navy Sub Discovery Validated

The U.S. Navy recently validated the identity of a submarine shipwreck that was discovered in 2017 after being missing for nearly 75 years. Utilizing advanced imaging technology, Ocean Explorer Tim Taylor and his "Lost 52 Expedition Team" officially discovered the final resting place for the 49 Sailors of the long-lost U.S. submarine S-28 (SS-133) in ultra deep water off Oahu, Hawaii. July 4, 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the loss of the submarine, which was conducting exercises at the time she disappeared."The discovery of the USS S-28 as part of my 'Lost 52 Project
