IMS Station Location and Profile
Contributing to the Develpment of the Island
This new IMS station was designed collaboratively by the CTBTO's Provisional Technical Secretariat and Nanometrics with construction management and support provided by Guralp Systems. In total, three trips to Tristan da Cunha between 2001 and 2004 were required to complete station installation.
Certification, Testing and Evaluation
HA09 data began to arrive at the IMS in March 2004. The station started transmitting data to the CTBTO's International Data Centre (IDC) for testing purposes in November 2004 without any major problems. Thus, it was certified on 22 December 2004.
