Abstract

Seismic data acquisition by nodes in some implementations requires transfer of data for recording or for QC purposes through a wireless media. In one implementation data should continuously be transferred to the central system. According to an aspect, the design introduces several implementations of a device that can be used to induce an external directional field to be ready by the magnetometer in a land seismic sensor unit.

Title: Hybrid Optical/radio wave data communication for seismic data acquisition.

 

 

 

SUMMARY

Seismic data acquisition by nodes in some implementations requires transfer of data for recording or for QC purposes through a wireless media. In one implementation data should continuously be transferred to the central system. In many cases high data rate transmission cannot be supported by conventional wireless systems. This invention deals with creating a hybrid optical and radio-wave wireless system for transfer of seismic data and two-ways communication with the seismic node.

 
DESCRIPTION

Seismic data acquisition by nodes in some implementations requires transfer of data for recording or for QC purposes through a wireless media. In one implementation data should continuously be transferred to the central system. In many cases high data rate transmission cannot be supported by conventional wireless systems. This invention deals with creating a hybrid optical and radio-wave wireless system for transfer of seismic data and two-ways communication with the seismic node.

The node has in addition to a wireless data transfer system has an optical transmitter like a LED (and possibly an optical receiver sensor). In one implementation the optical receiver (and possibly a transmitter) is attached at the top of the wireless antenna. A central node (an access point) is mounted at an elevation, for example on the top of a tripad, over the ground with transmitter LEDs and receivers at every direct...
