This article reports that research and technology specialist QinetiQ PLC and Input/Output have formed a Joint Industry Project to develop and deploy what they claim to be the world's first fiberoptic seabed seismic acquisition system. The system being developed will be fully optical and designed to operate with no electronic components in the water, which should increase system reliability and reduce lifecycle ownership costs. The fiberoptic system will also feature a new generation of optical sensors that will allow JIP participants to acquire full-wave seismic data from the seabed.
