Next generation cableless land acquisition systems are now in use on seismic crews in various countries. Such recorders overcome many of the perceived shortcomings of earlier devices which may have limited uptake for certain applications.

These new systems are characterised by improved levels of source control integration, a wider variety of remote unit timing capabilities, abilities to perform remote control of ground stations as well as data QC/status return, and much improved data harvesting techniques.

This paper reviews these newest source control and recorder technologies, and describes how both passive and active acquisition in Middle East environments can benefit.
