A Brief History of ERT

ERT was founded in 1993 when Dr. Peter Li began applying his scientific training in geophysics to the practical problems of locating munitions and explosives of concern, sub-surface voids, and structures with the potential to cause environmental or construction hazards.

Dr. Jingli Yang joined Dr. Li in 2001 to provide mission-oriented scientific and data systems services at NASA and NOAA—integrating remote sensing science with in situ-collected data to create models and developing software and data systems to optimize scientific data analysis, data management, and data dissemination.
