Pegasus Quick Deploy Grant-in-kind

A call for studies in seismology using 5 Pegasus and broadband Compact Horizon Quick Deploy Stations

Start your research journey

We are pleased to announce a call for proposals for the use of five Nanometrics Quick Deploy Pegasus Stations to support a six-month study. The Pegasus and Compact Horizon Quick Deploy Station is a complete, self-contained, state-of-the-art broadband seismometer station that provides high-quality data for a range of applications, including:

  • Earthquake monitoring
  • Volcano monitoring
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Engineering seismology
  • Tomographic studies
  • New techniques 

The Pegasus Station is easy to transport, set up and deploy, making it an ideal tool for field studies.

The successful applicant(s) will receive a grant-in-kind of five Pegasus and broadband Compact Horizon Quick Deploy Stations for a period of six months for the study.

The winner(s) will be required to provide:

  • Photos and/or videos of the campaign site to Nanometrics
  • A completed survey on the functionality of the equipment

They would also need to choose at least one of the following three options:

  • Case poster
  • Abstract & case paper
  • Testimonial statement

The aim of these requirements are to showcase the results of the research and the effectiveness of the Pegasus Quick Deploy Stations in the field.

Nanometrics is particularly interested in proposals that demonstrate innovative applications of the Pegasus Stations in scientific research. The proposed study should aim to advance the understanding of a particular phenomenon, whether it be natural disasters, environmental changes, or other relevant scientific fields.

To apply, please fill out the form on this page to express your interest. You will then be sent an email which will include:

  • Proposal PDF:  complete a detailed proposal outlining your research objectives, methodology, and expected outcomes
  • Evaluation criteria
  • Acknowledgement of the Nanometrics Terms & Conditions

The deadline for submission is October 1st, 2023, and the awarded candidate(s) will be announced on December 11, 2023. The grant-in-kind is open to scientific researchers, particularly postgraduate students and early career scientists.
