Computers and blasting
Early computerized blast-monitoring equipment consisted simply of a digital version of the existing analogue machine with, perhaps, a few enhancements. Many additional facilities have since been developed to enable the efficient collection of high-quality data. These developments are examined with reference to digital sampling, triggering systems, the storage of complete recordings and signal processing. Recent advances have been made in the use of blast-monitoring locations with centralized control and data collection.
