Adam was involved in developing a low cost continous radar system that measures the rotating speed of moving or stationary targets, enabling devices with hidden components to be serviced without being disassembled. The technology can be incorporated into radar systems or tracking devices.

Adam has been awarded a €250 One-for-All gift voucher after the idea was judged to be the best invention submitted to a DRIC partner institution in March.
