The department provides instrument support to scientific and practical developments. The staff comprises the designers of measuring and electronic equipment, constructors and programmers experienced in carrying out significant scientific-research works and development works. The department does the design of technical documentation and manufacturing of systems’ elements (sensing measuring devices, digital measuring devices, information – measuring devices and control complexes) with their further use in systems of environmental, seismic and geophysical monitoring. Development of the electronic units is done based on the modern components with application of microprocessors and programmable logical integrated circuits.

MAIN DEVELOPMENTS

  • Unified automatic equipment for Forecast and testing areas in seismically hazardous regions of Russia (Federal target grand “Development of the federal seismic monitoring and earthquake forecasting network in 1996-2000”, IEG RAS, DB OT RAS).
  • Hazardous geological processes monitoring system for Russian – Turkey gas pipeline “Blue stream”-2002.
  • Hazardous geological processes monitoring system for Soligorsk ore mining and processing enterprise (Republic of Belarus) – 2003.
  • Groundwater level automatic-control system assigned for continuous monitoring of hydro-geodynamic fields at big territories – 2003.
  • Topsides induced monitoring system for oil and gas offshore platforms (Sakhalin II Project) – 2005-2006.

GENERAL ACHIVEMENTS

  • Type approval certificate RU.C.34.004.A. No 13659 for information(measuring and controlling complexes based on Unified automatic equipment has been issued according to the decision of the Russian Federation State Committee on standards and metrology. The complexes were included into State register of measuring equipment No. 23981-02.
  • Based on this design, the department has developed and delivered Hazardous geological processes monitoring system to such big industrial enterprises like Russian – Turkey gas pipeline, Soligorsk ore mining and processing enterprise (Republic of Belarus) and Topsides induced monitoring system for oil and gas offshore platforms.
  • In 2004 Information(measuring systems department took part in tender announced by Sakhalin Energy Inv. Co and has been awarded with a contract on modeling of external impacts induced to the oil and gas platforms and developing of the Earthquake Detection Algorithm. In 2005 the Department took part in the second tender by Sakhalin Energy and has been awarded with the Contract on design, manufacturing and delivery of the Topsides induced monitoring system for oil and gas offshore platforms, sites Piltun – Astohskoe and Lunskoe, Sakhalin II Project.
  • Working for Sakhalin II Project the Department has designed three&component accelerometer (TCA). The accelerometer has
    obtained Pattern approval after successful tests.
  • The Federal service on ecological, technical and nuclear supervision has issued permission for use No PPC 00&19283 and Certificate of compliance and Type approval certificate for Topsides induced monitoring system for oil and gas offshore platforms.
  • Topsides induced monitoring system for oil and gas offshore platforms is now passing tests to obtain Type approval certificate for the overall system.
