We are developing an inexpensive, compact deployable Ground Truth Monitoring System (GTMS) for obtaining calibration ground truth information (timing, location, magnitude) autonomously from mining regions. The GTMS is capable of operating continuously for 6-months on a single small battery pack, weighs about 3 lbs, is simple to install and will cost about $1500. We anticipate that the unit can be easily adapted for the IRIS RAMP program.
