True to our mission, AFTAC remains the world’s most trusted leader providing technical nuclear information. We collect, produce, and advance capabilities to observe foreign nuclear tests for treaty monitoring; respond to global nuclear events; and prevent strategic surprise.

Of course, AFTAC continues to improve the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System (USAEDS). As the nation’s caretaker of USAEDS, AFTAC works closely with the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization in Vienna, Austria. Together, both parties are significantly improving the International Monitoring System (IMS). In fact, AFTAC now contributes six of its U.S.-based USAEDS seismic monitoring stations to the IMS.

AFTAC includes nine detachments, four operating locations and more than 60 unmanned equipment locations around the world supporting AFTAC’s long range nuclear detection mission.

EarthScope was a program of the National Science Foundation that deployed thousands of seismic, GPS, and other geophysical instruments to study the structure and evolution of the North American continent and the processes that cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. It involved collaboration between scientists, educators, policy makers, and the public to learn about/utilize exciting scientific discoveries as they were being made.

Güralp has been developing revolutionary force-feedback broadband seismic instrumentation for more than thirty years. Our sensors are used worldwide by academic, public, governmental and private organisations to understand, protect and explore our world.

All of our sensors employ the principle of negative force feedback loop to minimize the motion of the mass, and keep it centred within the seismometer casing. This technology vastly extends the bandwidth and linearity of the seismometer, recording seismic signals with long periods of over 300 seconds to over 100 Hz.

Güralp broadband sensors record seismic events and seismic signals of all kinds, from teleseismic events occurring on the other side of the planet, to microseismic events induced by unconventional hydrocarbon extraction (e.g. hydraulic fracturing). Our high fidelity digitisers ensure that these signals are recorded with the highest resolution and accurate timing.

Our range of products and services meet the most complex of requirements for deployment in the most challenging circumstances. We are always developing new ways of engineering this tried and trusted precision technology into smaller and more advanced casings. You will find Güralp instruments gathering seismic data in the harshest of environments, from the Antarctic ice sheet; to boreholes 100s of metres deep; to the world’s most active volcanoes and deepest ocean trenches.

The Seismology Research Centre is an earthquake observatory that started developing earthquake processing software and digital recorders in the late 1970’s. The SRC monitors the southeast quadrant of Australia and locates almost 1000 earthquakes each year. The 7th generation “Gecko” seismograph is their most user friendly and robust professional grade recorder yet. Some Gecko variants now include internal triaxial velocity and acceleration sensors for simple deployment with minimal cabling, and easy data telemetry via cellular or other communications links. The latest Gecko model is an affordable short period seismograph called the “Tremor”.

Anyone can use the SRC’s “Waves” MiniSEED data viewing software, which is free to download from the src.com.au for Windows, Mac & Linux. Their Quick Quake app for iPhone and iPad is a great teaching tool to show how earthquakes are located, and can be used by duty seismologists to verify automatic earthquake locations in under a minute.
