Antelope Environment Monitoring Software is a distributed open-architecture UNIX-based acquisition, analysis and management software system. It is designed to provide a comprehensive set of environmental monitoring data and processed information in real-time. Finely engineered as an all-in-one system, Antelope integrates state-of-the-art technology and scientific advances, making it ideal for monitoring seismic events from local/regional, national and global networks and arrays. Antelope takes full advantage of the extensive support services provided by the UNIX environment and standard TCP/IP network utilities over multiple physical interfaces.
Antelope consists of two major sub-systems:
The current generation of Antelope provides full functionality for seismic network and array operations and control, including real time data acquisition from field digitizers, interactive control of field equipment, system state-of-health monitoring, real time automated data processing(detection, picking, seismic event association, seismic event location, archiving). It also offers interactive and batch processing, information system functions, automated distribution of raw data and processed results, batch mode seismic array processing and a powerful development toolkit for extending and customizing the system.
- ARTS, the Antelope Real Time System
- ASIS, the Antelope Seismic Information System
The Antelope Seismic Information System uses the relational database (RDBMS) formalism and the CSS v. 3.0 schema for information organization. Antelope runs on Sun Microsystems' Solaris operating system on both SPARC and Intel architectures. In addition to providing specific functionality for seismic monitoring systems, Antelope provides a robust and versatile substratum of generic functions that can be used to support other non-seismic monitoring applications.
