In order to prevent a potential collapse of the atoll, the ministry of Defense have scheduled improvement works on all its telesurveillance system, named Telsite, starting late 2014 and up to 2017, to monitor the seismic activity of the base. The Telsite system includes a network of seismic captors placed on the surface but also in wells hundreds of meters deep. 35 soldiers live on the atoll carrying maintenance and security tasks.
