A New Jersey-based business owner is using his technology to clear unexploded bombs in Laos.
Ken Hayes runs Aqua Survey, a company based in Flemington that excels in land surveying.
He uses radar technology to see what's buried right under your feet.
In a country like Laos, there is unexploded ordnance to dig up from the Vietnam War.
Hayes has been making frequent trips there for 10 years to clean up those bombs.
The State Department says there could be 80 million unexploded cluster bombs still in the ground in Laos.
Hayes’ team is also building schools and libraries in 24 villages. The newest school will be formally dedicated in January.
