Geotech Instruments, LLC
Geotech Instruments, LLC, has over 50 years experience in the development and production of ground motion monitoring instruments. Today, most of the seismic field instruments used by the U.S. Air Force in fulfilling its mission to monitor nuclear events worldwide are produced by Geotech. The company ocupies a building of more than 20,000 sq.ft. for office space, assembly hall, testing labs, machine hall, and storage areas in sunny Dallas.
Geotech has participated in many programs during its long history of producing ground motion monitoring instrumentation. Such programs include the development of the Worldwide Seismic Network, the Alaskan Long-Period Array, the multi-country Group of Scientific Experts program, the VELA Uniform Seismic Arrays in operation for more than 20 years, the 25-year-old Seismic Data Analysis Center, and recently in Infrasound Arrays and Seismic Systems for explosion monitoring. Also, Geotech provided the sensors and signal conditioning for the active seismic experiment on the Moon.
Geotech innovation continues with seismic sensors and digitizers designed to record high-resolution, low-noise data, along with powerful software programs that analyze and quickly extract more information from raw data. Geotech products are used in a wide range of applications: research, seismic survey of natural and induced seismicity, civil engineering, microzonation, industrial vibrations, as well as in education.
