HOUSTON – Kongsberg Seatex has added two features to its SmartWing instrumentation on the eBird Seismic Streamer Control System.

Shown at the 2013 SEG annual meeting, the eBird now has a compass plus a GNSS receiver in the wings which can improve efficiency not only during launch and recovery, but also while running lines, says Kongsberg Seatex.

The built-in compass is fully integrated with SmartWing and provides heading information while submerged.

“We always try to find improvements to our solutions and these new features are excellent examples of how we combine our core technology and expertise to create improved value for our customers,” said Gard Ueland, president of Kongsberg Seatex AS.
