ION launches enterprise version of Marlin software to more broadly optimize offshore operations and continue advancing maritime digitization

HOUSTON, April 12, 2018 ION Geophysical Corporation (NYSE: IO) today announced the launch of its enterprise version of Marlin software to more broadly optimize offshore operations and continue advancing maritime digitization.  Marlin supports a step change offshore from traditional manual processes to digital solutions that integrate and share information in real time to enable better, safer decisions.  Similar to air traffic control, Marlin is designed to maximize the safety and efficiency of offshore operations by integrating a variety of data sources in real time (AIS vessel tracking, GIS geographic information, GPS, radar, satellite, USBL acoustic data, RFID radio frequency identification, ocean currents, etc.) with operational plans, creating an unparalleled picture of offshore operations to enhance decision-making.  Marlin provides a unique Cloud-enabled platform that links temporal planning (similar to a Gantt chart) with timestamped spatial data.  This integration of data enables multiple stakeholders onshore and offshore to share and visualize vessel route plans, information on operational activity alongside any associated exclusion zones, foresee and avoid conflicts between vessels and fixed assets, optimize schedules safely within a rules-based environment, and measure and improve asset performance.

ION has been delivering Marlin as a service for over three years.  This process enabled close collaboration with customers offshore to gather requirements to efficiently develop an enterprise-wide software package.  Marlin is differentiated by its comprehensive functionality across three technology layers.  The first layer leverages our industry-leading data management platform, which stores information in a central database.  The second is visualization technology, which displays all the data spatially from a global perspective down to the ship yard.  The third is the analytics and reporting engine, which enables extensive reporting and playback functionality and has been very popular among clients to continually improve operational safety and efficiency and resolve disputes.  Marlin has been deployed over 70 times in a variety of offshore projects, delivering significant value to clients.  These deployments have spanned AUV flight planning and optimization, integrated offshore activity planning, optimization of time-lapse seismic surveys co-mingled with busy oil and gas operations, marine operations in arctic ice, and shore-based marine control centers.

“This software package has the potential to revolutionize offshore operations,” said Chris Usher, Executive Vice President of ION’s Operations Optimization group.  “The maritime industry is going digital.  Clients are looking for a smarter way to manage their operations and this enterprise version of Marlin can reach a lot more clients and projects than our field service team could.  We believe Marlin can deliver significant value in operational efficiency, safety, environmental compliance and total cost of ownership for diverse maritime assets whether a customer operates a busy offshore oil and gas asset, tracks marine traffic in harbors, or manages supply vessel scheduling around wind farms.  Marlin consistently unites and engages personnel across activities and is proving invaluable around event transparency as almost every project is followed by requests for extensive mission playback from the system.”
