Specialization profile--Radar systems and remote sensing

Signal Processing for Remote Sensing and Radar Systems focuses on microwave system design, analogue and digital processing of microwave signals, signal processing for typical remote sensing applications (antenna array pattern synthesis; space-time adaptive signal processing in ultra-wideband arrays; detection and feature extraction; tracking and navigation; classification, and imaging) that are performed at either a single node or via distributed sensing.
