Stanford Civil Engineers Lab has signed a $4 million contract with NASA to develop a new type of seismic monitoring instrument.
The $4.5 million contract, awarded in December, is for a three-year contract and is for the detection of seismic activity at a seismographic facility located in San Luis Obispo County.
The seismographic instrument would monitor seismic activity in California’s San Luis Basin.
The instrument would be developed by the Stanford Civil Engineer Laboratory, a civil engineering and engineering design program.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to bring the Stanford civil engineering lab to NASA for the first time in history,” said Mark Schmitz, director of engineering at the Civil Engineering Laboratory.
“We will be developing a new generation of instruments that will be able to measure earthquake activity and seismicity at the site of a natural disaster.”NASA is developing a seismic monitoring system called the Advanced Seismic Sensor System, or ASS, which will monitor earthquake activity across California and other parts of the United States.
The ASS will also be able read and record seismic activity, such as earthquakes, seismic waves and tremors, according to a statement from NASA.
This is the first such instrument to be developed at NASA for use in a disaster relief program.
The instrument will monitor earthquakes in California and elsewhere across the United State and is designed to measure seismic waves that can travel through the ground.
The new instrument is expected to be installed at the San Luis Earthquake Observatory, located near San Luis, California.
“I think it’s important for us to be a part of a community of scientists and engineers that understand what we’re doing, and that is why we have the civil engineering laboratory,” said Schmittz.
“That’s what we are, civil engineers.
We are a team of scientists.”
This is a developing story.
