    Veritas chooses Sky-Fix

    News // October 10, 2003
    Thales GeoSolutions and Veritas Geophysical Corporation have agreed a two-year contract for the exclusive worldwide provision of Thales SkyFix-XP satellite differential global positioning system (SDGPS) and the Thales SkyFix DGPS. This is the first long-term contract of its kind to be signed for the new generation of Thales SkyFix-XP positioning and navigation services.

    Worth up to US$2.7 million, and extending well into 2005, the contract will see Thales providing positioning and navigation services to Veritas Geophysical Corporation's global fleet of seismic survey vessels, which are operated from Houston, Texas, Crawley, UK and Singapore.

    Effective immediately, this contract extends the contiguous period during which Thales GeoSolutions will be the exclusive positioning provider for Veritas to some five years.
