Team Stellar has won the Project Team Innovation Award at the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) Innovation Awards 2009.

Cranfield University and the team of industry engineering experts were awarded a trophy for their team work in developing flying unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) and an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that identify, monitor and report military threats.

The IET Innovation Awards, held at Lords Cricket Ground, spanned 15 categories and attracted over 300 entries from around the world. They represent an opportunity for innovators to be recognised and celebrate innovative application across engineering disciplines.

Team Stellar has already received acclaim for its technology - accolades include; the R J Mitchell Trophy for winning the MOD ‘Grand Challenge’ competition in 2008 for producing the best autonomous defence robots and battling against ten other competitors to tackle threats including roadside bombs.

Dr Toby Breckon, Lecturer in Computer Vision & Image Processing at Cranfield’s School of Engineering, said: “Winning the team award is great recognition of a solid industrial and academic partnership working together to produce technology that could be helping to defend the lives of soldiers on the front line within two years.”

Nigel Fine, IET Chief Executive, said: “I would like to congratulate all the winning and shortlisted entries in this year’s IET Innovation Awards, which demonstrate genuine innovation and represent significant technological advances.”

Team Stellar is Cranfield University’s Autonomous Systems Group and Applied Mathematics & Computing Group, Blue Bear Systems Research Limited, SELEX Galileo, Stellar Research Services, Marshall SDG designs, TRW Conekt.
