About the project
The first phase of the SEMIS programme is now approaching a successful conclusion.
The aim of the SEMIS project has always been to combine advanced metal detection with ground penetrating radar (GPR), but previous testing had always required the two sensor types to be housed in different devices because of interference.
In September the team travelled to Benkovac, Croatia where they were able to test an integrated system consisting of an advanced metal detector array, a position measuring system for the detector and a new GPR. For the first time the team has now combined the two detection methods into a single device.
