Trimble India: New instrument for earthquake and volcano early warning

Trimble India's new instrument can help prepare for volcanic eruptions

The private company Trimble India developed a new instrument for improved earthquake early warning and volcano monitoring. The intergrated Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reference receiver, broadband seismic recorder and a force-balance triaxial accelerometer for infrastructure and precise scientific applications can provide real-time GNSS positioning and seismic data for disaster preparedness as well as for infrastructure monitoring for buildings, bridges, dams as well as other natural and manmade structures.

In a press release, Trimble India stated: "Announcing the launch, Ulrich Vollath, General Manager Infrastructure Division who also heads the Earth Systems at Trimble Navigation said that this product will be a game changer, bringing best of two worlds of high resolution seismic observations (through accelerometer) and high frequency geodetic measurements (through GNSS) together that resonates with Indian market."
