Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
Seismic activity can come in many forms from many different origins. Detection of seismic activity can help develop early warning signs of earthquakes and prevent loss of life through rapid evacuation. Disaggregating simultaneously occurring seismic events becomes more challenging. The ability to differentiate between events of concern and routine background noise.
From a security aspect we want to detect anomalous seismic events that could affect our buildings. We want to be able to develop techniques that enable us to create a seismic profile of a building and study this over a period of time with the ability to explain the origin, nature and duration of all seismic activity, however subtle.
We need to understand the technology landscape in this area and develop ways of protecting our people and assets from compromise. Detection of subtle seismic events and activities would help the UK protect its science, engineering, industry and critical infrastructure.
Current seismic monitoring can enable earthquake detection and prediction of events that require protection of towns and citizens. Early, volcanic activity detection over a wide range and monitoring to aid scientific understanding and protection of neighboring communities and infrastructure.
Novel drilling techniques for construction proposes to determine if there is likely to be any impact on integrity of a building or infrastructure, while providing benefits of its application for legitimate law enforcement, CT and military operations, see The Almost Silent Drill, courtesy of International Procurement Services Ltd.
