ABSTRACT

There is the continuous need to enhance the capabilities to extract target, environmental and battlefield domain awareness to inform decision makers and deploy appropriate measures. Innovative sensing solutions, comprising sensors, sensing paradigms and advanced information extraction will be the focus of this special session. Potential topics of interest for the session include innovative sensing paradigms such as neuromorphic sensors and passive radars as well as advanced processing solutions for advanced target characterisation and RF surveillance.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS

Professor Carmine Clemente, is Director of the Sensor Signal Processing and Research Laboratories and Co-Director of the Centre for Signal and Image processing and of the Applied Space Technology Laboratories at the University of Strathclyde. He is co-chair of the Advanced Signal Processing for Radar and EW of the Electromagnetic Systems interest Group, the UK radar Society. He is a recognised world expert in radar systems and processing, having contributed to books, delivered tutorials to several international conferences and courses to Industry and Academia on this topic. His research interest is in the field of radar signal processing with specific experience in Synthetic Aperture Radar processing, including the development of target detection and recognition and micro-Doppler information extraction in SAR imagery.

Dr Gaetano Di Caterina, is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and Fellow of the HEA. In particular, he is the Leonardo Lecturer on a joint program (2023-2027) between Strathclyde and the security and defence company Leonardo UK Ltd.
His current research interests are in Neuromorphic Engineering, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, Digital Signal Processing and Embedded Systems. He is Director of the Neuromorphic Sensor Signal Processing Lab.

Dr Christos Ilioudis, is deputy director of the Sensor Signal Processing and Security (SSP&S) Laboratories where he conducts and oversees remote sensing related research activities. Dr Ilioudis has a broad portfolio in signal processing solutions ranging from commercial to security and defence applications. Highlights of his research include the National (UK) and Overall Winner awards of the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2016, second-place in Copernicus Masters 2020: BMVI Transport Challenge and finalist for the E&T Innovation Awards 2020: Visionary Award for Protective Society and Saving Lives. His current research is focused on radar signal processing including SAR, multistatic and passive radar systems, application of Al in radar signal processing, automatic target recognition and micro-Doppler.
