French-based seismic company Sercel has recently launched Sentinel MS, a new multi-sensor solid streamer enhances subsurface and broadband imaging.

Sentinel MS builds on the Sentinel solid streamer. In addition to the pressure measurement provided by its hydrophone sensor, the new Sentinel MS features two additional acceleration components offering directional measurements for both cross-line and vertical wave fronts, to deliver multi-sensor data sets for enhanced broadband imaging.

Sentinel is fully compatible with Sercel’s streamer positioning system Nautilus, Sercel said. The system extends marine acquisition via the addition of directional measurements to its low-noise, low-frequency capabilities.

Pascal Rouiller, CEO, Sercel, said: “With over 5,000 km of Sentinel streamers delivered to date, our Sentinel family, including the Sentinel MS and Sentinel RD, is unmistakably the best solid cable available to the industry today.”
