Optical sensing technology for seismic monitoring.

Our client asked:

Stingray approached us when its original partner was struggling to
deliver: their challenge was in one technical issue that needed to be
resolved and then required their system transferred to manufacture.

The project story:

This project was a spin-out of an optical sensing technology that
Stingray was using for seismic monitoring.
We were asked to support this development following our involvement and delivery of a previous couple of small projects helping to
investigate potential solutions to a specific technical issue relating
to optical sensing.
Stingray had developed a subsea seismic monitoring system with
the optical technology using fully passive sensors and therefore
being suitable for deep subsea installations: 40,000 sensors spread
over many square km of ocean floor, 4km deep, connected permanently to some complex topside equipment. In a big system, this
could be 10+ 7 ft high 19-inch racks of kit.
We also undertook re-architecting of the system to make it scalable,
developed several new modules and updated others: more high-speed electronics and also optical modules, and did a significant
amount of software development.

Results: deliverables and outcomes

We supported field trials in Norway and the USA and worked with
a contract manufacturing partner in Ireland.
The technology was ultimately sold but continues to be developed
in China.
