In order to test the performance of fiber optic hydrophone arrays for marine seismic exploration, in the South China Sea, the same operation was performed using a 1024-element fiber optic hydrophone array and an imported 360-channel piezoelectric hydrophone marine seismic surveyor. ION (formerly I/O) developed a reusable acquisition system, Victories Ocean (VSO), to record full-wave data from the ocean floor. VSO integrates ION's proprietary technologies, including the Victories digital full wave sensor, buoy recorder and patented noise cancellation cable system. The VSO is custom designed to ensure that high-fidelity seismic full-wave fields are recorded from a low-noise environment on the ocean floor. At the heart of the VSO is Victories, a full-wave sensor. Victories capture broadband seismic data with the highest vector fidelity. The result is a high-resolution image of the reservoir (even the deep target).
