Detecting Humans with SAR remote sensing technologies
LOW ALTITUDE AUTOMATIC TARGET DETECTION WITH REMOTE SENSING using SAR technology. Automated Target Detection Automatic target detection (ATD) is very important in military applications and there are challenging problems with ground surveillance. The inability to achieve high detection rates and low false alarm rates for well-known challenges, such as the target type, weather conditions, and…
Urban Rural Air Mobility
Urban Rural Air Mobility refers to transportation systems that move people and goods by air. These transportation systems developed in response to both traffic congestion in the Urban context or accessibility in the Rural context. While the two different environments differ dramatically the challenges for transport and delivery are very similar.   DIFFERENT JUNGLES –…

DRONE NOISE LEVELS
Drone noise levels. The advent of drone technology and the prospect of skies filled with whirring rotorcraft have raised alarms about increasing noise levels and the resulting impact on society (and the environment), challenging drone manufacturers to find ways of reducing the noise (acoustic) footprints of their aircraft.   DRONES and SURVEILLANCE Drone technology powerfully…
Methane Gas Detection: Thermal vs Laser
Methane Gas detection sensors: THERMAL vs LASER ?   The question frequently asked is, which is better, thermal or laser sensor for UAV based methane gas detection?   How does a laser gas detector work? Utilizing laser technology, gas leaks are located by pointing the laser beam towards the suspected leak, or along the survey…
