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!
