ARRAY’s ATD employs a team of PhD scientists that perform leading-edge scientific research and analysis in seismology, geophysics, and related scientific areas. These scientists work closely with high-volume, high-performance IT experts and regional seismic station teams to provide a comprehensive suite of scientific analysis and monitoring capability from deployed station installation to data collection to advanced analysis. ATD’s geophysics team members actively support projects that:
Conduct, present and publish studies involving seismic, infrasound and hydroacoustic waveform data analysis, wave propagation and source characterization, and velocity and attenuation modeling in multi-dimensional earth models to understand better the seismotectonic framework of a study area.
Provide comprehensive single seismic station and seismoacoustic array deployment, maintenance, command, and control to ensure real-time, mission critical timely acquisition and forwarding of all digital seismic and infrasound data to key clients.
Plan, design, integrate, test and deploy public and secure data acquisition systems for collecting, formatting, transferring, forwarding, archiving (using relational databases) and analysis of data in the field and at regional facilities.
Support creation of seismic test facilities and test procedures to enable scientists to fully characterize hydroacoustic, infrasound, and seismic components.
Develop, test and integrate third party algorithms and software for use in tasked seismic, infrasound and hydroacoustic research activities using common programming and configuration management practices.
Provide systems engineering and logistical support including, but not limited to, purchasing, integrating, testing, packaging, and shipping of instrumentation and equipment to and from designated study areas at host countries.
Provide operation, maintenance and training (hands-on and classroom as deemed necessary) support on all deployed instrumentation, communication and computer systems.
