Videoconferencing, VIC
  26 Apr 2021 - 30 Apr 2021

Objectives:

To provide Station Operators with the knowledge and technical understanding on the operations, maintenance and management of an IMS infrasound station using Nanometrics Europa-T and Guralp DM24 digitizers. Upon completion of the course the trainees will be able to efficiently perform essential tasks for station operation, reporting and configuration management, to conduct proper State of Health (SOH) and data monitoring, and to proceed with methodical equipment and software configuration and maintenance.

In particular, the trainees will be able to:
  • Identify and describe the main station systems, components and equipment;
  • Proceed with Europa-T and DM24 digitizers and SSI software configuration;
  • Use State-of-Health (SOH) and data monitoring tools and demonstrate ability to assess station performance and SOH information;
  • Outline main operational tasks and practice on IRS reporting;
  • Explain the concept of configuration management and demonstrate efficient use of DOTS;
  • Demonstrate interrelationship between operations and maintenance activities and sources of support to sustain IMS stations and
  • Develop plans for mitigation, troubleshooting and problem solving of failures with significant impact on station performance, including recent experiences in relation to COVID-19 pandemic.
