Alumnus Dr Anand Sengodan and the University have been awarded the IET Emerging Technology Design Award for their SIMCA algorithm. The SIMCA algorithm – developed with the guidance of Dr Paul Cockshott and Dr Paul Siebert - can be integrated into a system that locates landmines by processing ground penetrating radar data. It has already saved many human lives by producing a clear 3D reconstruction of landmines, making it easier to locate and disarm them.
