David Groves – works for Quantech Image Processing. He examined the photo of Aldrin emerging from the lander and said he can pinpoint when a spotlight was used. Using the focal length of the camera's lens and an actual boot, he allegedly calculated, using ray-tracing, that the spotlight is between 24 to 36 centimetres (9.4 to 14.2 in) to the right of the camera. This matches with the sunlit part of Armstrong's spacesuit.

Notes from ApolloHoax ProBoard:
Firstly, Quantec. This company is/was registered at Companies House. It was
closed down on 14th Nov 2000. I have what records there are (3 documents, which
I could upload - is there a space here somewhere.) There were 2 directors,
Groves being one. Groves listed his profession as "computer programmer". There
are a number of addresses listed for the company : Leigh, Warrington and
Skelmesdale - the last two being the towns where the two directors lived.
There is so little information around, that I feel fairly sure that Groves is a researcher, at a university, that he found a business application for something he was working on, and started a small company to cover this extra curricular work.
As to his whereabouts now... I have found some stuff around.
Some good starting points are the National Refractory Angina Centre, the Cardiothoracic Centre, both in Liverpool, and Liverpool University.
Some links ....
Sure, David Groves must be a fairly common name (in particular, the e-mail
address is for a Mr David Groves, not Dr.).
However, at the end of the pdf document I linked, there is an acknowledgement to David Groves, the Cardiothoracic Centre, and the Quantec Scanner. The other leads came from a bit of research into that institution.
It doesn't mean that Groves is a medical doctor, but rather that he works in Medical Imagery.
still think that the link below
could be a trace of this elusive person. The subject of the paper is consistent
with Groves' claim for developing holographic techniques to analyze photographs
and it's from Liverpool Polytechnic. However I'm reluctant to pay the 30 bucks
to buy the article
have made some more inquires about
Quantec and the David Groves in the film.
Quantec Image Processing Ltd went into liquidation in 1999 and ceased to trade in 2000.
The directors were:-
Paul Curran ( I have his address in Wigan)
DOB 19/08/47 (60 Years old)
Dr David Groves . Who also doubled as the company secretary
DOB 17/09/54 (53 years old)
Both are listed as computer programmers.
They issued 150 shares, worth a total of £ 1000
I have a copy of there 363 return the UK Companies house.
