The Rockhound Platform: A View from 30,000 Feet

The Rockhound Platform: A View from 30,000 Feet

Rockhound is a software platform designed to implement real time data acquisition from digitizers and perform vital functions based upon that data to meet the needs of the end user.

In this session, Dennis Pumphrey will walk us through the configurable capabilities of this modular platform such as:

* Continuous recording

* Triggered event recording

* Telemetry reformatting and relaying

* Interfaces to post processing

This informative webinar + Q&A will help operators, researchers, and engineers understand the multitude of implementations possible with the Rockhound platform.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Seismic Monitoring and Building Code Compliance with the iCOBI 3 System

Seismic Monitoring and Building Code Compliance with the iCOBI 3 System

Seismic monitoring systems provide valuable data and information on the behavior of buildings leading to improved understanding and better design codes.

In this session, Narek Abrahamian will discuss the reasons many municipalities (e.g. City of Los Angeles, CA USA) require seismic instrumentation or offer benefits such as reduced inspection time as part of a building occupancy resumption program (e.g. BORP San Francisco, CA USA). He will share how the iCOBI 3 system fulfills these needs and more.

This informative webinar + Q&A will provide engineers, building managers, and emergency management professionals detailed information on how best to approach seismic building code compliance.

We look forward to seeing you there!

MARS Insight SP: Overcoming Engineering Challenges

What happens when you decide to send a seismometer to Mars? There’s only one way to find out!

In this session, Ian Standley will take us through the exciting Mars Insight project from the standpoint of the engineering team from Imperial College, Oxford University, and Kinemetrics tasked with developing a new seismometer that could withstand the harsh conditions of space and the surface of Mars.

He will discuss some of the engineering challenges and opportunities associated with this incredible project, and share his experience of seeing the team’s work reach the surface of another planet! Ian will talk about the deployment of the seismometer onto the surface and its operation on the planet. Finally he’ll discuss future potential missions to put seismometers on our own moon and possibly the “Icy moons of Jupiter”.

This informative webinar + Q&A will provide an engaging and informative view into the engineering processes used to overcome challenging conditions, and give the audience an entertaining back-stage view into the Mars Insight SP project, and the story of the rock named, “The Ace of Spades”.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Abu Dhabi Seismic Hazard and Risk Analysis (ADSHRA)

KMI Information Series Webinar + Q&A!!!

Join us to for a walk-through of the Abu Dhabi Seismic Hazard and Risk Analysis (ADSHRA)!

In this session, Mohamed El Idrissi, Director of Kinemetrics S.A. Switzerland will guide us through the details of this challenging and unique project.

The program was conceptualized to build an integrated system to assist regulators in formulating development policies and criteria to secure the population, present and future urban development, vital facilities and the infrastructure of the Abu Dhabi Emirate against potential adverse seismic impacts.

To achieve this strategic objective ADSHRA: (a) Developed specialized seismic monitoring systems; (b) Assessed the seismic risk of the Abu Dhabi Emirate and assured early disaster warning; (c) Established GIS shielded databases; and, (d) Ensured that all segments were interlinked in an integrated system.

This informative webinar + Q&A will help engineers, operators, and regulators understand the lessons learned from this important project.

We look forward to seeing you there!
