Space weather events impose a threat on critical infrastructures such as electrical power grids, global navigation satellite systems, satellite operations, aviation technology and radio communication channels at various frequencies. We present an update on a new ground-level neutron monitor (NM-2023) which will be used to monitor space weather events, namely the detection and alert of ground-level enhancement (GLE) events. The NM-2023 will provide data to entities such as the United Kingdom Meteorological Office, the Neutron Monitor Database (NMDB), and the University of Surrey. We also report on a neutron monitoring survey conducted using a pair of subsystems deployed at several UK field sites. The data collected by these subsystems will be compared across the various sites, to data collected using a partial NM-2023 instrument and with data from established NMDB instruments with similar geomagnetic cutoff rigidities.
