Our main objective is the integration of sensor physics and the tools of statistical analysis and modeling into Image Understanding (IU) methods and techniques. We believe that a precise analysis of sensor physics, performance and noise will lead to new models and approaches that suggest novel ways in which IU concepts need to be adapted and extended in order to make optimal use of all available data. The set of interrelated research topics that will serve as the initial focus for our research include:

  • Multiresolution SAR-based ATR
  • SAR-based ATR incorporating pose-dependent SAR image formation and analysis
