Tsunami Early Warning System for Peru
Libra Stations Deployed in Haiti The earthquake in Haiti resulted in unfathomable devastation. The 7 magnitude quake, lasting only 35 seconds, leveled buildings, killing and injuring hundreds of thousands of people. The suffering that resulted is incomprehensible and has resonated worldwide. With no infrastructure, no power and rarely functioning telecommunications, foreign agencies faced a logistical nightmare coming to the aid of Haiti’s broken population.
Nanometrics Equipment Deployed in Indian Tsunami Early Warning System The India Meteorological Department (IMD) selected Nanometrics for the upgrade and expansion of existing networks and the establishment of new seismological observatories. Nanometrics was awarded this tender based on its background and expertise in deploying large-scale mission critical seismic projects.
Seismometer Sales to Academia Sinica's Institute of Earth Sciences Top 150 Academia Sinica is one of Asia's premier research and educational institutions. Sinica's Institute of Earth Sciences (IES) is one of several long-term Nanometrics customers in Asia. IES has purchased over 150 seismometers of all types from the original Trillium 40 to the latest Compact model. In addition to deploying them in local networks, IES has also provided several seismometers to SE Asian countries as part of technical cooperation projects.
Trillium 240 Produces Outstanding Results at -60º C
Trillium Compact Carrying/Insulating Case Trillium Compact is available with an optional transport/installation case. The unique design provides space for the sensor and tripod deployment cradle (included with the case) which can be set securely into soil or onto an irregular rocky surface. The Trillium Compact is then set into the bowl-shaped arms of the cradle and leveled in seconds. Optional tripod cradle spike kits are also available for use in unconsolidated soil and sand deployments.

1000th Trillium 40 Ships The 1000th Trillium 40 recently passed production test and is en-route to its new owner. The Trillium 40 continues to enjoy widespread acceptance and success. The success of the Trillium 40 can be attributed to its consistent performance and outstanding track record for reliable operation. Nanometrics' original goal was to design a seismometer that would “arrive alive”, not just on the first shipment but every time, to any destination.
The Caribbean Tsunami Warning Network Set in Motion The Seismic Research Unit (SRU) of the University of the West Indies selected the Nanometrics Inc. Libra VSAT telemetry seismic systems to establish a sustainable and robust seismic network to rapidly provide accurate detection of tsunamigenic events and issue early warnings for the region. This organization is responsible for monitoring earthquakes and volcanoes for islands of the Eastern Caribbean, in addition to the Dutch islands of Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Martin.
IRIS selects Trillium 240 for Transportable Array The USArray component of the National Science Foundation's EarthScope project is a continental-scale seismic observatory designed to provide a foundation for integrated studies of continental lithosphere and deep earth structure over a wide range of scales.
