New Delhi: National coal miner Coal India Limited (CIL) has launched a software named “Spectral Enhancement” (SPE), which will help in identifying thin coal seams under the earth crust and improve the assessment of coal resources using seismic survey during the coal exploration process.

"The launch of SPE software assumes significance as the present seismic survey techniques for coal resource exploration have their limitations in identifying the thin coal seams under the earth, which will now be possible as this new software helps in enhancing the resolution of seismic signals leading to the delineation of thinnest coal seams," the Ministry said in an official statement released Saturday.

CIL’s research and development (R&D) arm Central Mine Planning and Design Institute (CMPDI) Ltd has developed this first of its kind software in association with Gujrat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) and the company will also file for its copyright protection.

This ‘Made in India’ software will also help to save time and cost of coal exploration and thus boost the mission of 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' in coal production.

Coal India Chairman Pramod Agrawal launched the software in presence of the R&D Board of CIL comprising of senior directors of Coal India and expert members from the reputed organisations and institutions. CIL accounts for 80 percent of India’s coal output.
