AFTAC operates and maintains a global network of nuclear event detection sensors called the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System (USAEDS). Once the USAEDS senses a disturbance underground, underwater, in the atmosphere or in space, the event is analyzed for nuclear identification and findings are reported to national command authorities through Headquarters U.S. Air Force.
The specific purpose of this Corporation is to serve as a consortium through which programs and institutions can work toward urgent improvement in earthquake strong-motion measurements, solve mutual problems with strong-motion instrumentation and data, and assist in the dissemination of strong-motion data.
EarthScope comprises 3 interlinking components: EarthScope facilities operated by the UNAVCO and IRIS consortia; a research program that supports PI-led investigations; an investigator community coordinated by an academicEarthScope National Office, that actively participates in science planning, research, and facility governance.
Founded in 1969, Geometrics is a world leader in the design, manufacture, sales and rental of rugged, portable, and easy-to-use geophysical instruments. These technologically-innovative systems are used for land, airborne and marine subsurface investigations. The company’s main product line includes proton precession and Cesium vapor magnetometers, high-resolution seismographs, analog and digital marine seismic streamers, and electrical conductivity and resistivity imaging systems. Applications for our instruments include natural resource exploration, geotechnical and environmental assessments, ordnance detection and identification, surveillance, and marine tectonic research. They are also used in mapping archaeological sites and in treasure hunting and for teaching and research. For almost 50 years colleges, universities, research institutions, government agencies, and exploration firms have been depending on our experience and expertise to perform state-of-the-art geophysical surveys.
Geophysical instruments are often subjected to extreme stress: heat and cold, rain and dust, shock and vibration that would daunt designers of conventional products. Geophysical instrumentation must also have the highest level of technology, incorporating user interfaces that are simultaneously easy to use yet powerful enough to give in-field answers.
Geometrics has an extensive international representative network covering four continents and over 60 countries. We offer world-class service and support. With prior arrangement, we can be available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
Güralp digital and analogue sensors record seismic events and signals of all kinds, from teleseismic events; to local and regional strong motion earthquakes; to microseisms induced by human activity. We engineer our products to meet the most complex of requirements for deployment in the harshest environments.
With 30 years of unrivalled expertise in fiber-optic gyroscope technology, iXblue now offers a product line dedicated to rotational seismology – blueSeis-3A. It is the first broadband, low-noise rotational seismometer industrially available and field-proven with an outstanding true-north seismometer alignment solution with the iXblue QUADRANS – a fully strap-down fiber-optic gyrocompass (FOG) and attitude reference system.
Kinemetrics’ solutions cover everything from local/regional/global networks, induced seismicity monitoring, building code compliance and structural health monitoring, nuclear power plants monitoring, to business continuity solutions.
There are over 500 stations on-line all around the world, check out our interactive WebUI www.raspberryshake.net/stationview/ powered by GEMPA – SeisComP3 Software Solutions.
Donate a suggested $5.00 at the booth to the SSA Student Travel Grant Fund and receive one of our colorful Puerto Rico meeting grocery bags! And don’t forget to swing by during the Pint and Poster break Wednesday for a commemorative Seismology poster, designed and letterpress printed by Hatch Show Print in Nashville, Tennessee.
With plug-and-play simplicity to continuously record or stream observatory-grade data, our 7th generation seismograph, the Gecko, is complimented by a range of free software applications that means you don’t need to be an IT expert to run a network of seismographs.
