Imperial College Student's dive into deep technology

1 Jan 2023
OA News

Aryan Shah (OA 2021), a second year Earth and Planetary Science undergraduate at Imperial College London (ICL), has achieved a number of great feats in the last few months.

Aryan has recently finished interning at a seafloor mapping startup called Oshen Sail and has also created his own start-up InXploratus Technologies (InX Tech), in which they are building long range autonomous underwater vehicles to survey the ocean floor and the seas for a variety of uses such as conservation, pipeline inspection and helping oil and gas companies drill sustainably.

Aryan has also been promoted from Business Associate to Partnerships Lead for the Business Division of the Karman Space Programme, a student team at ICL attempting to be the first student team to launch a reusable rocket into space and back. In July, the team successfully launched a rocket to 5km in Scotland and were publicised on BBC News. The team are certainly make a name for themselves and are sponsored by some of the largest companies in the aerospace industry, including Northrup Grumman, Microsoft and Google.

Recently, Aryan and his friend also entered a competition from the UK Space Agency, the SateLife 2022 Competition, to design a business idea using satellite data to benefit people on Earth. They came up with an idea (called TectOrbit) for a deep learning algorithm that takes satellite and autonomous underwater vehicle data, combines them and runs them through the algorithm to come up with an accurate prediction of earthquakes around the world. As one of the competition winners, they were awarded £4,500 and were given the opportunity to pitch their idea to the European Space Agency and the UK Space Agency in a Dragons’ Den event. They have since gained further support from the dragons and were recognised on the government website.

Congratulations on your hard work Aryan!
