Data Center Description
The U. S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) Monitoring Research Program supports a wide range of efforts in the area of nuclear explosion monitoring through in-house research and development, as well as contractor support. Seismic, hydroacoustic, infrasonic, and radionuclide technologies are all utilized in the effort to improve the capability for monitoring the globe for nuclear explosions.
The Program staff includes scientists, software engineers, and experts in information systems. Their capabilities, which range from data collection, analysis, and distribution to basic research and development, contribute to the various projects of the Program.
The Research and Development Support Services (RDSS) project is focused on improving verification monitoring capability by supporting the DTRA and SMDC R&D community, providing testing at appropriate scales for evaluating current and future capability, and focusing attention on the important technical issues.
Most Program resources can be accessed via the RDSS link. Additional information can be found in our archives.
