AxRTM: An Innovative Reverse Time Migration Application

Presented by Marcel Nauta, Acceleware
Tue Nov 18 @ 1:00pm, Wed Nov 19 @ 10:00am, Thu Nov 20 @ 2:00pm
AxRTM is Acceleware's high performance Reverse Time Migration application. This presentation will highlight both new and existing features that make AxRTM a compelling choice: enhanced amplitude correctness, adaptive removal of low-frequency noise, and advanced grid features to reduce runtime while preserving image quality. Uniquely supporting multi-core CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors AxRTM is the most efficient RTM application on the market. AxRTM is available from Paradigm, OpenGeophysical, Tsunami, GeoTomo and Acceleware.

AxWave: Fast and Accurate Survey Design and 3D Modeling

Presented by Marcel Nauta, Acceleware
Tue Nov 18 @ 9:30am, Wed Nov 19 @ 3:00pm, Thu Nov 20 @ 1:00pm
AxWave is Acceleware’s high fidelity finite-difference full wavefield modeling application. Engineered to run on CPUs, GPUs and Xeon Phi, AxWave offers unparalleled speed and efficiency for 2D and 3D isotropic variable density modeling and pseudo acoustic modeling for VTI and TTI media. In this presentation we will provide a tour of the product's features and interface, including: survey geometry, absorbing boundaries, variable grid, and optimized update coefficients among others.

AxFWI: High Fidelity Velocity Model Building  

Presented by Marcel Nauta, Acceleware
Tue Nov 18 @ 3:30pm, Wed Nov 19 @ 1:30pm, Thu Nov 20 @ 9:30am
Full Waveform Inversion (FWI) is a technology which is moving into the mainstream. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how to invert seismic data to derive high-resolution earth models by following an example inversion. An overview of AxFWI, Acceleware's customizable FWI application will be shared.
