Abstract
Optoplan has developed a novel, high-performance large-scale fibre optic Ocean Bottom seismic Cable (OBC) system, which has successfully been qualified through field installations. This OBC system is based on combined wavelength- and time-multiplexing of fibre Bragg grating (FBG) based interferometric sensors. A large-scale manufacturing system has been developed to handle the manufacturing of several system per year - each system having at least 2000 sensor stations. The first full scale OBC system will be ready for installation early 2009.
