It is important that vibrator parameters be set correctly. As some of these are entered at the vibrator during setup, Sercel allow us to check remotely via a GetDSD.
The result being a text file containing entered and measured parameters.
Whilst this can (and usually is) checked visually, it is easy to miss things, especially on a large crew with many vibrators.
SMGetDSD allows you to define a setup template and check against it, minimising the risk of missing incorrect values.
Currently it assumes all vibrators on the crew are the same type, with the same parameters. This is usually the case. A future version may allow for mixed types and parameters.
Two sets of graphs are available. They provide plots of measured values only, as there is little point in displaying plots of things like Mass or Baseplate weight, as they should all be the same.
