Advanced Sensors Concepts: Exploitation, Signal Processing and System Engineering
October 15, 2018 @ 18:00 - 20:00
In this talk, a number of concepts and technologies forming the foundation for the exploitation of sensors from a Big Data perspective are presented. A signal processing and systems engineering approach is discussed, and heuristic techniques are presented as being critical to leap ahead advances in sensor exploitation. While Space-Time Adaptive Processing oriented and radar centric in nature, the foundation for a more general sensors approach to Big Data exploitation is discussed. Archival data is considered to be essential to the optimal exploitation of sensor phenomena, as humans are unable to fully observe or even comprehend the volumes of rapidly changing data available today. Topics as diverse as radio frequency tomography for below ground imaging, millimeter wave sensing for exquisite feature extraction, target resonance and dynamic imaging of targets obscured by clutter and cover, as well as Space-Time Adaptive Processing are presented. The integrating theme of Big Data exploitation in the Internet of Radar is discussed within the context of these enabling sensor technologies as is the “Velocity of Sensor Data.”
