Underwater recorders and multi-hydrophone buoys for oil and gas exploration

RTsys helps oil & gas companies to make their prospecting campaigns. The use of airgun is common for oil & gas prospection. This is pretty heavy and we provide these companies tools to determine how the noise generated can affect the marine wildlife.

EA-SDA14 recorder

Versatile multi-hydrophone recorder, easy to use with high level of performances.

  • 4 synchronized hydrophone inputs
  • Broadband: 3 Hz to 1000 kHz
