SEG ’14: Acceleware introduces modular full waveform inversion application

DENVER, Colorado – Acceleware introduced AxFWI, a modular full waveform inversion application for the creation of high-resolution and high fidelity broadband subsurface velocity models, at SEG 2014 in Denver.

Full waveform inversion is an advanced and automatic technique that inverts full bandwidth seismic data with the reflected and refracted wavefields for the primary purpose of improving subsurface imaging. AxFWI takes this one step further by increasing accuracy, customizability and speed.

“As exploration continues to push past conventional geologies and computing power grows we’ve seen a paradigm shift in the techniques used to model and image the subsurface,” said Geoff Clark, CEO of Acceleware. “There is a growing demand for more complex methods, such as full waveform inversion that deliver the highest level of accuracy possible.”

“What’s unique about AxFWI is its innovative modular architecture,” said Eric Trouillot, Director of Business Development and Technology, Seismic Software of Acceleware. “AxFWI is the only commercial software package that offers companies the flexibility to integrate their own technologies and algorithms to meet their specific exploration needs.” 

Engineered for maximum performance, AxFWI leads the industry in compute speed, providing users with significantly shorter cycle times. Powered by the same finite-difference engine that is used in Acceleware’s reverse time migration (AxRTM) and seismic forward modeling (AxWave) products, AxFWI is optimized to run on NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and multi-core CPU clusters.
