Based on this partnership, LU students will be granted access to the test Range by SPH Engineering for geophysical sensors in Baloži, as well as a fully equipped workshop at SPH Engineering premises. They will get a chance to touch the latest technological developments in drones, geophysical sensors, and software - both from the world market leader in airborne geophysics SPH Engineering, and other manufacturers.
It will help develop their skills and provide them with an experience they would not get anywhere else. In addition, the SPH Engineering team will provide technical support for scientific research carried out at LU with technologies developed by the company.
“I'm thrilled with how well the collaboration has worked out! Students will have access to a unique Test Range, with the option to use the latest drone technologies to conduct research projects. Furthermore - the scientific research staff of LU will be supported by engineers from SPH Engineering. who will share their knowledge and professional experience with them.” Janis Karuss Dr. Geol Sc. at LU · Faculty of Geography and Earth Sciences.
SPH Engineering CTO Alexey Dobrovolskiy emphasizes the importance of business and academics' close collaboration.
"We believe that technology, innovation, and education are key to solving global challenges. Therefore we are very happy that LU supports us in promoting these values. It is not only an investment in each student's professional growth but a way to contribute to Latvia's competitiveness in an international community of engineering and science. This also includes the future development of local manufacturing and service industries. Our company is ready to provide support and expertise in the development of new technologies required by the University," Alexey Dobrovolskiy comments.
