Ultera, Sercel Team

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. -- Ultera Systems Inc., a leading provider of high-performance virtual tape libraries, has entered into a strategic partnership with Sercel, the world leader in seismic acquisition, under which the French company will internationally market and support the Mirage(TM) Data Recorder (MDR).

The ultra-reliable MDR is designed for real-time data acquisition in mission critical operations where repeating the test is either impossible or cost prohibitive. It eliminates problems associated with traditional tape drives by replacing tape drives and cartridges with two high performance disk drives in removable canisters.

"We are constantly evaluating data acquisition technology to ensure we offer our geophysical clients the fastest, most reliable equipment available," stated Daniel Boucard, land product development manager for Sercel. "We recently completed testing and evaluating Ultera's Mirage Data Recorders and certified they meet our stringent standards for quality, accuracy and reliability. As a result, we are excited to resell MDRs globally."

"This agreement with Sercel is a major step forward in our efforts to sell Ultera products internationally," said Ultera president Mo Nour. "Sercel is the largest manufacturer of seismic acquisition equipment in the world. We anticipate providing product immediately."
