Technology for Icy Moons Seismology

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Development of ultra sensitive micro and macro Very Broad Band seismometers for the Moon and Ocean Worlds.

Define the system architecture under which Icy Moon seismometers will need to operate.; Select a seismometer technology for advancement.  Identify state-of the art Very Broadband and Micro Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) sensor technologies potentially applicable for the Icy Moons environment, and rank them based on their potential to fulfill the observational requirements determined by our sister Science task (101), and to comply with the system architecture.  Develop selected technology.
