2005 CENS Summer Intern:NIMS (Networked Info-Mechanical Systems) is a sensor system utilizing fixed and actuated sensors to monitor environmental changes. A new, rapidly deployable NIMS (NIMS RD) allows for more mobility and versatility in the field. With short-term deployments, data is able to be read quickly and in-field calibrations are possible. A variety of sensor nodes can be attached to the system allowing it to work in diverse environments. As a result of this, many deployments have been possible and much environmental data has been collected at Medea Creek, the James Reserve, and the White Mountains.
