    AViSeis® ®    
IST-3MP — static correction interactive technology ® SeisWin — field QC ® GDS-I — vibrator control geophysical digital system ®

The AViSeis® adaptive vibroseis technology is an innovative field survey method that builds on the proven track record of conventional vibroseis.

Unlike the conventional vibroseis technology that uses one sweep signal for the entire survey line or survey area, AViSeis® employs non-linear sweep signals to match the geologic settings at each shot point.

This overcomes the limitations of the conventional vibroseis technology and allows making real-time adjustments for variations in surface and subsurface environments throughout the survey area.

AViSeis® adjusts sweep signals for each shot-point automatically by analyzing seismic records from the target depth interval and applying the results of inversion to subsequent sweep signals.

The use of AViSeis® technology results in expanded signal spectrum, better seismic resolution and more consistent amplitudes throughout the survey area.

The AViSeis® technology is supported by GDS-II®, our new certified vibrator control system, complete with RF transceivers and GPS/GLONASS receivers, and EQUALIZER software that is compatible with all available vibrators and seismic stations.

The AViSeis® flow chart:

  1. Generate linear sweeps at each shot point for the first series of shots;
  2. Record subsurface response;
  3. Input recorded data to Vibro Equalizer for analysis and adjustment calculations;
  4. Load adjustments to the GDS-II® - vibrator control system;
  5. Calculate a new (non-linear) sweep based on adjustments and download the updated sweep parameters to vibrators for subsequent shots.
