Provide, operate, and maintain a national strong motion network.
The same Aspen technology implemented in the USArray/TA project delivered 99.8% data return over ~1,800 installations in more than ten years of operation.
After ten years of successful operation in the continental USA, the current USArray/TA phase comprises of 280 stations operating in Alaska, in a harsh environment like never before, where will stay operational until 2021 when removal will begin. By the end of this U.S. National Science Foundation USArray/TA sponsored project, a large number of Aspen stations will be transferred to the Alaska Regional network, operated by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
Since October 2012, we operate and maintain the RAN. The data center operation uses BRTT’s Antelope software for data acquisition and processing. In addition, we support DPC’s outreach program by installing temporary stations at schools.
