Research proposals for thesis on Satellite Image Processing
Due to the successful collaboration with the ONR (Office of Naval Research) the opportunity to work alongside them in the satellite image processing area has arisen. Currently the ONR and CTI-HPC are looking for enthusiastic researchers in developing one of the following topics:
- Ocean surface analysis. Study of oceanic sea surface (air/sea interations, oil slicks, thermal processes, etc), using dynamic equations, SAR, and MODIS.
- Vessel classification from hyperspectral and multispectral data. Different approaches of Hyperspectral Image techniques for solving remote sensing image classification. These privide an important feature in material identification, discrimination, detection and classification.
- Application of HPC in image processing. Implementation of Hyperspectral Image algorithms on HPC architectures (multi-computer clusters, hetereogeneous networks of computers, and specialized hardware architecture such as FPGA and GPU).
- Ship detection. Development of ship detection algorithms using SAR platform, plays an important role in the field of marine monitoring.
Surely the study of one of these topics could be an excellent opportunity for the development of a thesis project.
The next visit from the ONR experts will be in November 2011 when they will give a background of these topics as well as the use of different tools for image processing. We will keep you informed about the exact dates and duration of their visit in our News section.
