Safety and security
Contact: Alexander Yarovoy
The research is focused on system design for distributed observation systems, sensor fusion, sensor management, development of sensing signals to extract maximum information from the scene, signal and information processing methods including detection, classification, localization and tracking.
The research is performed in close co-operation with industrial leaders (such as Thales, NXP) as well as end-users (governmental agencies, Ministry of Defense, airports, etc.).
Specific areas are:
- microwave vision,
- distributed sensor systems for environment monitoring
- large sensor arrays and applications in security
- resource management in distributed sensing systems
