S-Cube delivering breakthrough Full Waveform Inversion capability

Use XWITM optimisation to gain a step-change in the resolution of your seismic velocity model


XWI Model

  • XWITM is a fully automated data-in model-out optimisation framework for deriving the most detailed and accurate best-fit velocity volume from recorded seismic data. 
  • The toolbox integrates CWI and RWI with the AWITM and FWI optimisation cost functions for training earth models to predict seismic measurements.

Case Studies
