A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between QinetiQ and the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) in Saudi Arabia to collaborate on a range of research and technology development programmes which could include autonomy, robotics, sensors, communications and remote sensing.
Scientific ideas about the danger of earthquakes have evolved in the decade since the 2001 Nisqually earthquake shook buildings in Western Washington. Though the level of seismic danger in the Pacific Northwest hasn’t changed much, the ability to study and prepare for it has improved immensely. The Nisqually earthquake was recorded on the first modern strong-motion sensors deployed in Western Washington.
Producer of fiber optic sensing systems and Acorn Energy’s subsidiary, US Sensor Systems (USSI), has finished the side-by-side testing of the Ultra High Sensitivity (UHS) fiber optic geophones.
A new study reveals that the fly arranges the hair-like structures of its nervous system to feel and hear. That method now serves as a model for refining wireless sensor networks, among other computer applications.
Some innovative laptops may have the potentiality to sense earthquake. The improved versions of laptops form leading companies, such as Apple and Lenovo, are integrated with motion sensing accelerometers to identify when a unit has fallen.
In its endeavor to predict earthquakes, the Indian ministry of earth sciences (MoES) plans to develop a network of seismic sensors 8 km under the ground at Koyna in Maharashtra.
German-Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System (GITEWS) is currently in use. Around 300 warning stations have been constructed across Indonesia, comprising GPS stations, tide gauges seismometers, and buoy systems.
ION Geophysical announced that it has started a three dimensional multi-client seismic survey on the Marcellus shale play situated in central Pennsylvania.
The United States agency undertaking earthquake monitoring across the country is seeking 35 volunteers in Southern California for installing earthquake sensor in their home.
Meggitt Sensing Systems has released a highly-flexible seismic industrial accelerometer known as the Wilcoxon Research Model 731A for monitoring the low-level as well as the seismic and low range vibrations occurring on the objects and structures.
