MBR will deliver communications in the 5GHz band across distances up to 50km, with the system relying solely on the infrastructure aboard each vessel, rather than satellite or Wi-Fi networks.

According to Kongsberg, MBR will enable high speed data, voice and video transfer between multiple seismic vessels, providing ‘significant operational advantage’.

“All Marine Seismic Operations are in reality multi vessel operations and require reliable communication,” said Gard Ueland, president of Kongsberg Seatex.

“MBR represents a quantum leap in reliability for this type of communication and we believe that users will experience a whole new performance level enabling them to benefit from safer and more efficient operations.”

The system will be capable of carrying a range of operational information, from system data to real-time video, and includes a ‘Fast Track’ function to prioritise data streams.
