Octopus Acquisition Systems Evolve - 05/04/2004
Utilising technology developed for the recently launched Octopus 760 geophysical acquisition system, two new instruments have just been introduced to the Octopus instruments range.
The Octopus 360+ sub-bottom processor and the Octopus 460+ sonar acquisition system are the result of a radical overhaul of their popular predecessors, the Octopus 360 and Octopus 460. Developed using embedded Windows XP, each incorporates a 15” TFT screen with high resolution graphics, DVD RAM recorder and built-in UPS. The all-new compact, rugged and extremely easy to use package makes them ideal for all survey operations.
With full format compatibility (XTF, Coda, SEGY), analogue input and output, support for all popular printers and extensive network and digital interface capabilities, the Octopus 360+ and 460+ are easily interfaced to almost any sidescan sonar or sub-bottom profiler and both integrate seamlessly with most post-processing and mosaicing solutions.
