The present paper is dedicated to the construction of an allocated system designed to perform vibroseismic monitoring of earthquake prone zones.

The main problem is associated with the creation of a distributed computer system providing collection, accumulation and processing of the observational data at an area of several thousands of square kilometers.

The monitoring systems of seismic-prone zones must make routine observations of expected earthquake sources and, using the dynamics of the behavior of prediction features, decisions on the force, place and time of a possible earthquake can be made.

A generalized information model of a system for active vibroseismic monitoring of seismic prone zones is proposed. It consists of the following basic elements: vibrator; object being studied (seismic-prone zone); observation system for collection of primary information; solution-computer module for the processing of routine observations, comparison and estimation of data, control of the working regimes of the vibrator; prediction - the system's element responsible for the prediction of the source behavior.

A version of the system is proposed for the sounding of earthquake focus areas using seismic arrays and powerful vibroseismic sources. Data flows and information rates are assessed for real time and bufferied data gathering. The module principle of earthquake prone zone sounding system design is considered.
