Seismic Recording made easier with SmartSolo

Based out of Indiana, R & S Drilling Inc. were growing tired of the physical demands and manpower to move and operate their cabled and wireless systems using external batteries and geophones. For a much easier solution, they have turned to SmartSolo.

President and owner Jack Racer summarized “The same 500 channel layout with SmartSolo required only a Suburban or pick-up truck to transport, versus a semi-trailer with the previous equipment. We can survey, layout, shoot, and pick-up a single mile 2D line containing 80 channels in 4 hours or less. With a 4-man crew, we were able to complete a 450 channel 350 Acre 3D project with 600 weight drop shots in four days”.

“We are very pleased with SmartSolo, and the opportunity this equipment has given us to perform our own seismic surveys in a fast and cost-effective manner”.
