Project Abstract
Goal: Discuss current state of automated detection efforts, issues with adapting existing codes to the testing center framework and future directions.
Intellectual Merit Background: The Transient Detection Test Exercise is a project in support of one of the SCEC3 priority science objectives, to “develop a geodetic network processing system that will detect anomalous strain transients.” Systematic searches of geodetic data for transient signals has obvious applications for network operations, hazard monitoring, and event response, and may lead to identification of events that would otherwise go (or have gone) unnoticed.
Broader Impacts We utilize existing facilities for our testing center, which will hopefully open up this exercise to a wider community.
