A network of sensors are linked by software and the Internet to an autonomous-satellite-observation-response capability. This system of systems has a flexible, modular, architecture to facilitate expansion in sensors and customization of trigger conditions and responses. Researchers have used this system to implement a global-surveillance program of science phenomena including volcanoes, flooding, cryosphere events, and atmospheric phenomena.
