 Media Release

Leading seismic monitoring instrumentation and solutions provider Güralp Systems Ltd. and Sonardyne International Ltd. have signed an agreement to cooperate in the provision of cutting edge multidisciplinary ocean bottom research technology, including capabilities for earthquake or tsunami detection.

The official Teaming Agreement between Güralp and Sonardyne, announced at the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) conference in London today (June 4), will enable the two companies to collaboratively provide more advanced and efficient technology for in-situ seismic and seabed monitoring.

Güralp has more than 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of broadband seismometers and accelerometers, while Sonardyne’s experiences stretches to more than 40 years of experience in long-endurance data collection and through-water telemetry. As a consequence, clients globally will benefit from a combined offering of technology for seismic data gathering, seabed deformation monitoring and tsunami detection, as well integrated acoustic positioning and telemetry for remote data access.

At the heart of the cooperation is Güralp’s revolutionary new Aquarius Ocean Bottom Seismometer (OBS). Comprising of a digital feedback tri-axial broadband seismometer, three-axis magnetometer, a micro-electric mechanical system (MEMS) accelerometer and absolute pressure gauge, Aquarius is also equipped with Sonardyne’s 6G Wideband low-mid frequency (LMF) acoustics.

The low profile and compact design of the Aquarius minimises flow noise, but also makes it the most compact telemetry-enabled OBS available in the market. Available in two variants, the Aquarius is capable of 12 or 18 month deployments depending on the system options selected. These options include instrument configuration, transmission of state of health and triggered event or snippet data transmission at up to 9,000 bps.

6G-inside capability also means that Aquarius is compatible with a range of other Sonardyne technologies, including Ranger 2 Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) positioning and telemetry, as well as its unmanned surface vehicle (USV) GPS-Acoustic payload box and Tsunami Detection System.

Both companies have global reputations for provision of class-leading technology to academic, public, governmental and private organisations for understanding and exploring our world. As a consequence Güralp and Sonardyne are confident that closer cooperation will lead to a further step-change in the solutions available to customers.

Geraint West, Global Business Manager, Ocean Sciences, Sonardyne, says, “We really welcome closer cooperation with Güralp. Our overlapping markets and complementary technologies mean that we have the potential to transform what we can individually offer to our customers.”

Neil Watkiss, Commercial Director, Güralp, says, “The Sonardyne technology that we are utilising in the Aquarius is allowing us to re-define what is possible with broadband OBS. This agreement offers potential for further exciting product advancements on both sides and we look forward to further exploring the possibilities with the Sonardyne team.”

Support Update on GPS Week Number Roll Over Issue

Update on GPS problem with Week Number Roll Over for GPS units that pre-date 2015

Since we first alerted you to this matter last week, we have been working hard to identify what additional support we can provide to affected customers. We were only made aware of the issue on 27th March and the information provided was subject to subsequent changes. We now have more clarity on the implications for our systems.
 

DM24 Mk3 Patch

For DM24 Mk3 digitisers and integrated instruments (manufactured since 2005) we are now working on a patch and we have high confidence that this will work. If you are unsure which DM24 digitiser you are using, view our guidance on 'Distinguishing between a Mk2 and Mk3 DM242 digitiser'.
 
There will be some limitations to our provision of the patch:

It will only be possible to apply the patch to systems that are on-line if they have an integrated EAM. Digitisers without an EAM will need to be updated on site. We cannot guarantee that a remote update will always be possible.

For any customer who needs to eliminate uncertainty, our advice is to swap the GPS hardware now. You can find more information on our guidance note.
 
As soon as we have tested the patch, we will post an update with instructions on how you can apply it. If you would like to be added to the distribution list to receive this information by email, please send a request to sales@guralp.com

Other Affected Systems

Currently we do not expect to be able to provide a patch for DM24 Mk2 or CD24 systems. For both of these types of systems we advise a GPS hardware swap as the best solution.

Further Updates

We will continue to update the GPS NWRO guidance note on our website with our latest advice.
 
We are aware that this situation provides some logistical challenges for our customers and we apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result. You may have seen in the media that this situation is widespread amongst earlier GPS units supplied by a number of different manufacturers.

Support Update

Action required for upcoming GPS problem with Week Number Roll Over for GPS units that pre-date 2015

We have been made aware of an issue with the compact white GPS units supplied by us between 2003 and early 2015. During this time, two different chipsets were used in Güralp GPS units, both chipsets were manufactured by Trimble Inc.
•    From 2003, the Trimble Lassen SQ chipset was used.  
•    From mid-2010 the Trimble Lassen iQ chipset was used.

The latest Trimble Product Bulletin explains that these chipsets will both be affected by a WNRO (Week Number Roll Over) event.
•    The Trimble Lassen SQ has an NMEA cut-off date of the 28th July 2019, after which the dates from the GPS unit will not be valid
•    The Trimble Lassen iQ has an NMEA cut-off date of the 29th May 2021 after which the dates from the GPS unit will not be valid (some units may work later than this date but information is currently not clear)

This issue is relevant to Güralp customers using the DM24 and CD24 digitisers or instruments integrated with these digitisers (such as the 3ESPCD, the 6TD and the 40TDE) as they use NMEA.
 
This is particularly urgent for customers using the Lassen SQ chipset as these will expire on the 28th July, 2019.
 
This alert does not apply to GPS units purchased since 2015 with serial numbers (visible on the base of the GPS head) starting at G30000 or higher, or, to the new generation black Güralp GNSS Units. The chipsets in these units are from a different supplier and they have assured us that they will have no performance issues.
 
Our Solution
At this stage we are not offering a firmware fix as there will be no way of testing the firmware release until after the cut off date. Therefore we are recommending that customers undertake one of the following three options:
1.    Purchase a complete new GPS unit
2.    Return the affected GPS units to Güralp for factory fit of the replacement PCB assembly - our usual repair RMA process needs to be followed
3.    Purchase a replacement PCB assembly incorporating a new chipset - this can be manually fitted by the customer - we will provide details guidance on how to do this

We ask that all requests for any of the above options are sent direct to our support@guralp.com email address so that we can monitor uptake.
 
Distributor Service Option
If you purchase Güralp equipment through one of our distributors, they may also be able to office a more local replacement service to you. We have asked our distributors to contact customers regarding this situation, however you may also wish to contact them direct. You can find details of all our current distributors on our website here
 
How to check if GPS units use Lassen SQ or Lassen IQ chipsets
Any compact white GPS receivers shipped before the 1st of March, 2010 will be Trimble SQ type receivers. Receivers based on Trimble SQ units should be upgraded to avoid problems. Customers with GPS units that were purchased between March 1st 2010 and 2015 with serial numbers that don't start with "G3"  are advised to identify which type of Trimble Lassen GPS chipsets they have. The two chipsets can be visually identified with the top of the casing removed. Detailed instructions on how to do this are in our guidance note.

We ask that all requests for support, or replacement parts/units for this issue are sent through the support@guralp.com email address so that we can track demand as effectively as possible.
 
We are aware that this situation provides some logistical challenges for our customers and we apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result. You may have seen in the media that this situation is not specific to the Trimble GPS chipsets, but is widespread amongst earlier GPS units provided by a number of different manufacturers.

You can read more about the issue in an article on Nature.com here. (External link)

We will keep our guidance note page as up to date as possible based on the information we receive from the manufacturer and the solutions we can offer to overcome the issues. If you would like to subscribe to hear support updates on this subject please email support@guralp.com

 Media Release

Ocean Networks Canada (ONC), a University of Victoria initiative, successfully deployed a string of three cabled Güralp Maris ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) as part of the first leg of their 2018 ‘Wiring the Abyss’ expedition aboard Canadian Coast Guard Ship the 'John P. Tully'.

The deployment formed part of a two week project to install and improve instrumentation on the offshore cabled observing networks at Barkley Canyon, Cascadia Basin, Endeavour and Clayoquot Slope in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The Güralp OBS were deployed at Endeavour, the northern segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, a divergent boundary between the Pacific and Juan de Fuca tectonic plates. The instruments were positioned at a depth of approximately 2200 m adjacent to hydrothermal vents that have formed along the ridge, and were lifted into place using the Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility’s remotely operated vehicle for ocean science—ROPOS.

One of benefits of the Güralp Maris instrument for this type of deployment is the unique capability of the sensor to operate at any angle. This functionality allows for greater flexibility when installing the instruments in environments where precise alignment and levelling present more of a challenge.

During the deployment of the string, which took place on the 29th June and was streamed live via the ONC website, Güralp engineers were able to watch the installation as it happened, and provide advice to the scientific team on board the expedition vessel, led by ONC staff scientist, Dr. Martin Heesemann. The process of siting, connecting and testing the three seismometers and an interface unit took around five hours to complete. The data from the network will be publicly available via the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) from August.

Martin Heesemann, Staff Scientist at Ocean Networks Canada commented:

“Ocean Networks Canada’s (ONC) real-time network spans all of the dynamic and rugged tectonic regimes off Canada’s west coast capable of generating megathrust earthquakes, including the mid-ocean ridge at Endeavour, fracture zone and subduction zones at Barkley Canyon and Clayoquot Slope. Güralp has been providing world-leading technology and expertise to ONC since we began “Wiring the Abyss” in 2009.”

The incredible live footage of the installation was watched by Giorgio Mangano, Head of Ocean Systems at Güralp:

“Being able to watch the live installation video from the ROV and having direct communication with the ONC's team onboard the ship, it allowed us to provide some advice about the placement of the sensors and to help the scientists to fix simple issues during the process. Having seen how rocky and uneven the area was, we are glad to have developed the Maris, a broadband seismometer able to work at any angle without the need of gimbals. Where possible, the form factor of this sensor helps to easily bury it into the soft sediments, for best noise performances”.

A few days prior to this deployment a single, autonomous Maris seismometer was deployed, and will record activity over the period of a year before retrieval. The addition of this three-seismometer string - plus a single autonomous seismometer - will provide a dense network of instrumentation at this spreading mid-ocean ridge to help us better understand large plate scale seismic activity.

You can watch video of the expeditions deployments here https://data.oceannetworks.ca/SeaTube?resourceTypeId=1000&resourceId=1001&diveId=2551&time=2018-06-27T12:10:10.000Z

The Maris string deployment is R2086 2018-06-29 03:02:32.

 

Güralp has designed, built and deployed a wide range of OBS systems, you can read more about our experience in this area in our OBS brochure.

 Media Release

In 2017, Güralp employees were proud to present funds they had raised to Fir Tree Lodge, one of two nearby residential homes, run by Charity SeeAbility that provides support for people living with multiple disabilities and sight loss. Following the presentation, our staff were so moved and inspired by the residents of Fir Tree House that it was agreed that fundraising efforts in the lead up to Christmas 2017 should again be for SeeAbility.

We are pleased to say that our generous employees exceeded their earlier record and raised an impressive £505, a figure that was further boosted by the company, to bring the total to £750.

Earlier this year, a small group of Güralp staff visited Heather House, the second of the local residential homes run by SeeAbility, to meet the residents and staff and to present the cheque. Heather House specialises in providing support for young adults with Batten disease.

Batten disease is a group of related disorders affecting cells in the brain that causes a progressing loss of physical and mental abilities. Usually beginning in childhood, the disease stops the child from progressing in their development and they gradually lose the ability to walk, talk, sit and respond to surroundings. This deterioration occurs over many years and often leads to blindness and seizures.*

The individuals cared for at Heather House are provided with all round support and the opportunity to participate in activities such as cookery, arts and crafts, music sessions and physiotherapy.

The funds raised by Güralp will be put towards payment for one of ten new full-travel ceiling-mounted hoists that allow residents to get in and out of their beds and wheelchairs more easily.

The cheque was presented following a short tour of the amazing facilities at the home. Receiving the cheque at Heather House are Tisha Rolfe and Ivy Button.
