English term or phrase: hardwired groups
En un texto sobre adquisición de datos sísmicos submarinos. El problema es que el párrafo que copio a continuación está comparando un método antiguo (hardwire groups) con un método nuevo (streamer groups), y streamer ya estoy traduciéndolo como "cable sísmico". Podría ser "grupo con cables convencionales" o algo así?


Gracias!


"In the late 1980s, Shell geophysicists proposed a similar method and discussed the potential benefits. They realized that the traditional technique using an acquisition system composed of hardwired groups did not produce optimal data."

Explanation:
Creo que tienes razon. No pude encontrar la palabra compuesta en los diccionarios, pero hace unos 35 años traducia informes de exploracion (precisamente en Shell, en Argentina), y creo que ese es el sentido.
