BARCELONA, Spain – June 14, 2010 -- (BUSINESS WIRE) --Ultera Systems Inc. and Hydroscience Technologies, Inc. (HTI) jointly announced at the EAGE Conference here today that they have entered into an OEM agreement under which HTI will integrate Ultera’s MDR seismic data storage controller into its NTRS2™ recording system. 

HTI’s New Technology Recording System2 (NTRS2™) was developed to acquire and record large quantities of data in real-time. It is designed to be a lightweight, portable, high-resolution recording system that can manage multiple streamers.

 Ultera’s Mirage Data Recorder™ controller is a high speed, advanced, real time data recording system that offers the reliability of a mirrored disk subsystem and connectivity as conventional tape storage. An embedded archive engine provides a high-speed copy of virtual tape volumes to conventional tape cartridges and an integrated QC port allows confirmation of data recorded in real time.

“We are constantly evaluating data acquisition solutions to ensure we can offer the most technologically advanced marine seismic technology available,” stated Fred G. Woodland, CEO and president of Hydroscience Technologies.  “We recently completed testing and evaluating Ultera’s Mirage controller line and certified it meets our stringent standards for quality, accuracy and reliability. As a result, we are excited to integrate the MDR in our equipment on a global basis.”

“This agreement with HTI is a major step forward in our efforts to sell Ultera products internationally,” said Ultera president Mo Nour, “HTI has one of the premier technical staffs in the field of seismic instrumentation and Ultera’s market standing can only be enhanced by our new synergies.”
