Notice of Intent: Incorporating Real-time GNSS into ShakeAlert: Improving telemetry and upgrading to multi-constellation GNSS with on-board positioning at existing NOTA stations

Notice of Intent to award a cooperative agreement to UNAVCO, Inc.

in support of the project entitled "Incorporation Real-Time GNSS into ShakeAlert:
Improving Telemetery and Upgrading to Multi-Constellation GNSS with On-Board Positioning at Existing NOTA Stations".

The objective

S. to provide warnings of earthquakes when strongshaking has begun, so that propertydamage, injury, and loss of life can be reduced in affected areas .

Thisphase will support further testing ofthe system, improving seismic algorithms, completing integration of geodeticalgorithms, creation of tools to monitor the system and manage users, expandingnetwork coverage through building new stations and upgrading existing stationsand associated communications systems, encouraging private-sector creation ofEEW applications, and developing coordinated training and education.

UNAVCO operates the Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO), whichis the geodetic component of the NSF funded EarthScope network.
