- Passive and Active Electro‐Optical Sensors for Aerial & Space Imaging
Passive and Active Electro‐Optical Sensors for Aerial & Space Imaging
The workshop will focus on new and improved methods, techniques and applications of
(electro-optical) sensors on airborne and space platforms. The first edition of this workshop took
place in Auckland, New Zealand (2015), and the second workshop was in Wuhan, China
The aim of this workshop is to bring together engineers and scientists from academia, industry
and government to exchange results and ideas for future applications of electro-optical remote
Topics include, but not limited, to:
- Systems and sensors on planes, helicopters, remotely piloted aerial systems, and spacecraft
- Active and passive optical sensors: capabilities and technologies
- "Low cost" high-spatial and spectral resolution sensors
- Passive hyperspectral imaging for precision farming, etc.
- Applications: Agriculture and forestry; security and monitoring surveillance; target tracking; environmental monitoring: natural disasters, fire, volcanic activity, earthquake; land use, land cover, change detection; 3D terrain and object reconstruction; atmospheric phenomena
- Automatic target detection, recognition, and identification
- Fusion of the data from multiple sensors having different resolutions, spectral ranges, perspectives and modes of operation allows enhance recognition and identification process
- Calibration accuracy and robustness, and advances of in-motion calibration
Other important points for sensor and platform description are calibration standards, testing standards and image quality assurance procedures.
Motivation and Goals
Advances in the miniaturization, performance and low cost sensors, has allowed
researchers access to camera technology for wide-ranging applications. Developments in
sensor fusion and the proliferation of platforms offers researchers opportunities to extend
the range of devices available. However, there is still a need to provide quality assurance
of sensors, such as calibration, to minimize artefacts and bias in the data received and
facilitate high-quality processing.
