Multi-channel streamers

Increase the signal/noise ratio of the seimic records with the multi-channel coverage. Our multi-channel streamers are dedicated to HR and UHR seismics, with short hydros spacings and group intervals, all customizable.

12-channel seismic streamer
  • Single to 24ch in analog, unlimited in digital
  • Group spacing from 1 to 12.50 m
  • Hydro spacing from 0.2 to 1 m
  • small diameters 31 mm and 41 mm 
  • Environment friendly with inert oil ballast
  • Easy deployment by hand or small winch
  • No export licence on SIG16

The MCsps is the new amplifier-filter deck unit of the multi-channel streamers. It interfaces the multi-channel streamer to any third party recording system, and provides power supply for the preamplifier in head of the section, and also provides high quality analogue frequency filters and selectable analogue gains.

  • 9 amplification gains can be selected from 0 dB to 16 dB
  • 4 high-pass filters for low cut-off frequency of the noise.

Multi-channel seismics

SIG 16.6x8.57 has 6 hydrophones per group, group spacing 8 m, and 57 m long


Postprocessing is essential in multi-channel seismics. But the configuration of the array requires some expertise.

The spacing of the common depth points (CDP) depends on the hydrophones group-spacing of the array, the speed of the vessel, and the shooting rate.

The group spacing is determined by the frequency of the acoustic source, the water depth of the site surveyed, and the offset between the source and the receiver array.

The seismic signal of a particular point is identical for each channel, except for the noise which can thus be discriminated.

Exemple of the same profile from the west side of the island of Ouessant at about 200 km (courtesy of UBO Brest, team of JP Rehault), recorded with one channel, compared with a six-channel coverage. 

Compare air gun and sparker data after data processing, on only 7 channels.

Multi-channel Delph Seismic analog acquisition

DELPH Seismic Analog Acquisition Unit is the latest topside generation for acquiring seismic data. Embedding all necessary inputs and outputs, it accurately digitizes single to multi-channel seismic signals. Thanks to a single Ethernet output, acquired data is logged on any laptop or workstation running DELPH Seismic Acquisition software. This is a new standard for high-resolution seismic surveys with simplified integration, maintenance and operation.
