ION’s state of the art imaging technology is utilized on virtually every towed streamer survey to acquire superior data in the safest, most efficient manner possible.

ION is leading the digital transformation of marine seismic by designing our portfolio to work seamlessly as a single integrated system. Centrally controlling traditionally independent technologies can automatically optimize offshore operations in real-time. For example, predicting sea conditions can aid in pro-actively positioning the spread to meet ideal parameters. The automated approach reduces complexity, cycle time, and costs.

Advanced Towed Streamer Systems

  • Data acquisition systems – DigiSTREAMER enables customers to acquire low noise, cost-effective data in an environmentally-friendly manner with solid cables.
  • Positioning systems – ION’s DigiBIRD II depth control, DigiFIN lateral control, and DigiRANGE II acoustic ranging systems provide automated streamer steering and accurate positioning, critical to successful 3D and 4D projects.
  • Orca navigation system– Industry-leading applications for navigation, quality control and data management integrate data flows from multiple systems, ensuring better seismic data is acquired more intelligently while reducing costs and risks.
  • Marlin operations optimization – A rule based marine optimization software solution that combines temporal planning with spatial awareness
