Prof Simon Watts will be giving a talk titled: "UK Maritime Surveillance Radars for the RAF 1940–2010" for the inaugural presentation for the AES Society as part of the society being re-established in the UK & Ireland. As part of the 1st organised meeting of the IEEE AES Society we will are arranging a small drinks reception along with a meet and greet component so members attending can meet the newly established committee members.
This presentation reviews recent progress in Surface Nanoscale Axial Photonics (SNAP) which allows to create photonic circuits at the fibre surface with unprecedented sub-angstrom precision and ultralow loss. Recent and potential applications of SNAP ranging from miniature optical delay lines, buffers and frequency comb generators to microfluidics are discussed.
You are invited to attend this event to engage with the EMSIG community and to investigate collaboration opportunities in the field of Advanced Signal Processing for Radar and EW. The scope of this focus group within the EMSIG network is to bring together academics, industrialists, and potential end-users working on development of signal processing techniques for radar sensing and electronic warfare.
NASA observes our space environment daily with a fleet of space observatories, and in order to understand the Earth, we must comprehend it in the context of a larger universe. Every discovery we make about the distant universe, or the worlds, or our solar system, better informs our knowledge of our home planet. Three areas are at the heart of NASA’s comprehensive science program: Exploration, Innovation and Excellence. Dr. Zurbuchen will explore these tenets and share how NASA leads on a civilisation scale to enable new capabilities and address global challenges.
This talk by Dr Luke Rosenberg, Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, Australia covers three new approaches for target detection in the maritime domain. These include the use of stationary wavelet transforms to isolate different spectral features, the use of sparse signal separation algorithms and the application of the single snapshot coherent detector.
The 2019 Electromagnetic Systems Interest Group (EMSIG) 2019 Symposium will be held on 18th-19th June 2019, in Edinburgh at the Royal Society of Edinburgh. This event is an opportunity for interested parties from across industry, academia, and government to come together at a dedicated event to discuss the latest developments in the field of electromagnetic systems.
Daniel W. O'Hagan is Head of the Passive Radar and Anti-Jamming Techniques Department (PSR) at Fraunhofer FHR. His department leads numerous research activities for the German Ministry of Defence, NATO and the European Defence Agency.
The lecture hosted by the Radar Group @ UCL will review the topics of “Stochastic filtering & association” and “Multisensor tracking”.
