Azerbaijan's Republic Center of Seismic Survey (ARCSS) has selected Kinemetrics, Inc. to design an open-architecture system that will provide a state-of-the-art solution for its National Seismic Network (NSN) and Seismic Information System (SIS). The Kinemetrics solution will serve as Azerbaijan's mission-critical earthquake emergency-response system.

The new Azerbaijan NSN and SIS will provide a convergence of strong-motion and broadband seismology in a network consisting of fourteen very broadband and ultralow-power 6-channel Q330's with GPS, STS-2 very broadband seismometers, EpiSensor accelerometers, and Alms strong-motion-based seismic station subsystems. The seismic station subsystems will transmit data via VSAT (very small aperture terminal) satellite technology,...
