US Seismic Systems, An Acorn Energy Company, Introduces Another Oil Industry First

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- US Seismic Systems, Inc., an Acorn Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACFN) portfolio company continues its reputation for introducing pioneering optical sensing technology to the energy industry with the announcement today of its development of the world's first PC-based Optical Interrogator for its revolutionary oilfield fiber optic sensing systems.  Based upon technology originally developed for the US Navy's highly successful, large-scale fiber optic sonar programs, USSI is manufacturing the product under license from Northrop Grumman Guidance and Electronics Company, Inc.

USSI will showcase this new technology along with its suite of all-optical sensing systems for hydrofrac and 4D seismic monitoring at the Annual Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) meeting and exposition in Las Vegas, November 4-7, 2012.  The SEG Annual Meeting is the world's largest oil, energy and mineral exposition showcasing cutting-edge technology for use in exploration and associated industries. 

"Based upon industry surveys of hundreds of decision makers within the petroleum operating companies, the primary reason given for their inability to meet their performance expectations is their limited ability to understand the subsurface to properly optimize production," stated Jim Andersen, CEO of US Seismic Systems. "With the ability to process acoustic data at 200 times the rate of today's seismic systems, our new optical interrogator sets a new industry standard allowing higher bandwidth, higher resolution images to vastly improve the understanding of the subsurface."
