Integrated Systems
October 27, 2023

On November 14-16, 2023, SPH Engineering will participate in the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) Innovation Conference.

The three-day Innovation Conference in Geneva aims to highlight emerging technologies while offering an exclusive forum for addressing Explosive Ordnance Risk Reduction challenges tied to the demand-driven needs of mine action and ammunition management activities.

The following themes will be discussed during the event:

  1. Innovative finance
  2. Harnessing social and behavior change communication (SBCC)
  3. Technology prioritization: a needs-based approach
  4. Connecting the dots between innovation and standards
  5. Agricultural land release in Ukraine: outcome-based solutions 
  6. Advancing ammunition management through innovative approaches, tools, and technologies

On the second day of the GICHD Innovation Coveference 2023, SPH Engineering CEO Alexey Dobrovolskiy will join to present and discuss Possible use and standardization issues of airborne assets from a manufacturer and integrator perspective in UXO detection.

SPH Engineering looks forward to contributing to the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) debate about Explosive Ordnance Risk Reduction challenges.



The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) is dedicated to mitigating community risks stemming from explosive ordnance, explicitly concentrating on landmines, cluster munitions, and stockpiled ammunition.

The Center's mission is to enhance and advance the sector for the advantage of its collaborators, including national and local authorities, donors, the United Nations, various international and regional organizations, non-governmental organizations, commercial enterprises, and academic institutions. It accomplishes this through the integration of four key service areas: on-the-ground assistance with a focus on guidance and training, multilateral efforts centered on establishing norms and standards, research and innovation geared toward pioneering solutions, and the promotion of dialogue and collaboration.
