For technology that could help rid battle sites of unexploded bombs, Engineering Professor Fridon Shubitidze received a Project-of-the-Year award at the Department of Defense’s (DoD) 2011 Partners in Environmental Technology Technical Symposium and Workshop in Washington, D.C. Shubitidze was honored as a “partner who has helped DoD achieve its mission while improving its environmental performance.”

Part of Dartmouth’s ongoing Geophysical Sensing Program, the project was submitted in response to DoD’s stated need for “Unexploded ordnance (UXO) technology: Advanced technologies for detection, discrimination, and remediation of munitions and explosives of concern.”
