The AlertTahoe system is made possible by using high-bandwidth microwave links to transmit high-definition images and near real-time seismic data. Data arrive within seconds to one of our data centers and is available for processing and distribution to the public.
The evolving plan for the Tahoe-Truckee corridor, Sierra west-slope, and Reno-Carson-corridor, includes ~30 fire cameras plus new and upgraded seismic stations, as well as new radio access points to transmit data to our UNR-hosted headquarters.
