Partnership with Nanometrics

K.U.M. Kiel GmbH maintains a strong and trendsetting partnership with the Canadian company Nanometrics Inc. (Kanata, Ontario).

In 2013 we started using exclusively the seismometer Type Trillium Compact OBS from Nanometrics. Since then we could persuade the world market leader of compact broadband seismometers of the quality of our Ocean Bottom Seismometer Systems so that Nanometrics now unconditionally recommend our OBS-System.
