It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mark Shorey. He died suddenly on the 12th December 2018 following a brace battle with cancer. Mark had worked for FGPS since 2004 during this time he had completed over 1000 First Line Quality Control Checks for many of our clients. He will be missed not only as a work college but as a friend to us all here.

SEG Dallas 2016
FGPS exhibited at the SEG International Exposition and 86th Annual Meeting in Dallas which was both enjoyable and fruitful, meeting old friends and colleagues and consolidating existing business connections and creating new opportunities.
SeisPos now supports EPSG geodetic database
SeisPos version 21.26 has been released and licenced users may run the upgrade setup to take advantage of the new features. SeisPos is now fully compatible with the EPSG geodetic model. Users are also advised to download and install the EPSG database from the Products page. Our innovative approach provides great flexibility in the use and manipulation of geodetic information by providing the user with three databases, EPSG, User and Line (from the data file header). The interface is implemented through a "CRS Inspector" and "CRS Manager" allowing inspection, manipulation and copying of geodetic entities amongst these databases.
SEG New Orleans 2015
FGPS will be exhibiting at the SEG International Exposition and 85th Annual Meeting in New Orleans at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from the 18th to 23rd. October. Visit us at stand 3217.
1000 First Line Quality Controls
We are proud to announce that Mark Shorey has now completed his 1000th FLQC since joining FGPS in 2004. These FLQCs have covered all survey types from OBC to Q Marine, and both data formats P2/94 and P2/11. 99% of FLQCs have been turned around within the target 24 hours, with Mark frequently working unsociable hours to maintain this target.
Our long awaited new licensing system has finally been implemented for all applications. The new system simplifies the transfer of licences between machines without the need to use email. Site licences are now also supported.
To transfer to this new system contact us initially by email to request a new licence and then download and run your application's upgrade installer.
SPSPro and FBComp
We have released new versions of SPSPro and FBComp with a number of customer driven enhancements, details of which are given in their respective release notes. Please visit our Products page for links to the Upgrade Setups and the Release Notes.
SPSPro's receiver computation module, FBComp, is now a standalone product. Existing customers who have licenced this module will need to apply for a separate FBComp licence at no additional cost after upgrading both applications.
A new version of P1Tools has been released which incorporates a significant number of enhancements to the Preplot module. These include greater control over binning grid definitions, improved user interface, improved graphics options and overlays. Users download the release notes for full details.
FLQC P2/11 and P1/11 formats
FGPS have successfully carried out the first First Line QC (FLQC) on the new OGP P2/11 and P1/11 formatted data. This was carried out on behalf of a major seismic contractor. The same data was provided in the old UKOOA P format data and produced similar results confirming the integrity of the new formats. Our software has been designed in order to handle both formats and the integrity of the data in the new format was inspected using our application Px11Utils which is freely available from our website.

Busy Summer at FGPS
FGPS has had a busy summer. PGS have purchased 2 licences for SPSPro including the FBComp module to be used in their forthcoming OBC surveys. This was in conjunction with a training course provided by Paul at their headquarters in Lysaker Norway.
At the same time, we have been in talks with CGGVeritas to supply software fleet-wide for their OBC post processing tasks. CGG have been instrumental in working closely with us enabling us to develop a number of enhancements to the software.
If you would like any further information on our software for OBC positioning, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
