Titan SMA

An integrated digitizer and recorder for standalone and networked monitoring deployments.

Facilitates early warning systems

The TitanSMA is a strong motion accelerograph designed for high precision observational and structural engineering applications, where scientists and engineers require exceptional dynamic range over a wide frequency band. The TitanSMA features the same sensor as the Titan Accelerometer with its low noise floor, exceptionally low hysteresis, and industry leading dynamic range. The integrated digitizer and recorder facilitate both standalone and networked free-field monitoring deployments.

Civil Defense Applications

Provides all the necessary functionality to facilitate civil defense applications such as early warning systems (EEW) and shake maps. Local real-time processing and transmission of PGA, PGV, and PGD data, ability to recognize P-wave events and broadcast warnings, and network integration of multiple sensors for event triggers and voting.

High precision

Low noise floor, extremely low hysteresis, and industry leading dynamic range. Ultra-low latency configurations as low as .25 seconds. Precision timing with built-in GNSS or network timing PTPv1 (Precision Time Protocol), NTP (Network Time Protocol).


Convenient data retrieval Via removable SD card or local Ethernet in MiniSEED or ASCII formats.  
Provides network timing To other instruments including TitanSMA, TitanEA or Centaur digital recorders.  
Intuitive Web Interface For device configuration and control via web browser over ethernet connection.  
Built-in calibration Synthetic sine, step, and PRB waveform generation and waveform player.  
metadata-icons Station metadata Full digitizer/sensor response metadata files generated on-demand.  
Polar Certified This Polar Certified Model is available for operating temperatures down to -50°C.  

disaster planning & management

Giving populations valuable seconds to prepare for an impending event is essential. Our life-saving solutions range from the design and install of complete national networks to instrumentation that was designed and built with early warning in mind.
