Indonesia will boast one of the world’s most advanced computerised seismological data networks when an $18m Unix project goes on line next year. The network will link supermicros at regional seismic control stations via satellite with the Indonesian Meteorological and Seismological Agency’s mainframe in Jakarta. The French consortium of Bull Far East and software house Sofrevia SA will be installing twin Bull SPS 7/70 32-bit supermicros running Unix at each of three seismic control stations on Java, Sumatra and Bali. Real-time data collected at these stations will be processed by the two Bull machines working in parallel before being via satellite to the control data processing centre in Jakarta. This has three SPS 7/70s and a Bull 64 DPS mainframe as well as links to a world-wide seismological network via Singapore and Melbourne. A second phase of the project will involve linking in the seismic control stations at Ujung Pandang and Jaya Pura with the rest of the network. The project, which should be completed by the end of l990, is funded by Indonesia’s Ministry of Communications.
