Enhancing microbiological defence against biological warfare

Enhancing microbiological defence against biological warfare

Ebola, HIV, Hepatitis C and now Coronavirus – historically, viruses have been one of the most deadly microorganisms known to man. The current strike rate of COVID-19 has given the virus a particularly bad reputation. But what if there was a good guy in the world of virology?

Developing a novel radar transceiver system for MAV collision avoidance and mapping


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an autonomous micro aerial vehicle (MAV) with a Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave 24GHz radar transceiver system. Catchy, isn’t it?

Leveraging AI to enhance wearable assistive technology for use in the military

Leveraging AI to enhance wearable assistive technology for use in the military

Manual handling jobs are a pain in the neck, quite literally. In industries that involve heavy lifting and carrying, back, neck and other injuries account for over $10 billion in medical expenses annually. This holds true even in the military, where soldiers are often required to carry supplies weighing upward of 40kgs, and where the risk of injury is as serious as it is expensive.

Harnessing the photonic power of diamonds to develop powerful sensing applications

Harnessing the photonic power of diamonds to develop powerful sensing applications

Diamonds, they say, are forever. One of nature’s most precious stones, they hold potential far beyond their ornamental value. As nanodiamonds (microparticles), they have found use in medicine, electronic applications and even defence through quantum photonics, where their ability to fluoresce can be used to sense magnetic fields.
