Dr. Frank Vernon
CEO @Boulder Real Time Technologies
Dr. Vernon is the CEO of BRTT after many years as a Research Geophysicist at the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD. He has developed and deployed large-scale distributed real-time sensor networks in terrestrial and marine environments, including the ANZA seismic network, which was the first digital telemetry network and an early adopter of broadband seismometers and 24-bit data acquisition systems. Another system is the HPWREN program which initiated wide area wireless IP networking for sensor networks. This experience influenced the design of the USArray Transportable Array which has deployed over 2200 stations starting in 2004 using Antelope. Dr. Vernon has led multiple very dense seismic nodal deployments in the San Jacinto and San Andreas fault zones. Dr. Vernon obtained a B.A. in Physics in 1977, and a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences from UCSD in 1989. He is author or co-author on more than 150 refereed scientific articles.
