Environmental Sensing (IE)

This group emphasizes sensing for the environment. Environmental sensing involves those tools and processing techniques to characterize the environment including DIAL and LIDAR, hyperspectral monitoring, detection, processing and characterization, surveying applications, atmospheric propagation, pollution monitoring, and remote imaging. Also included in this area is remote sensing for military and commercial applications such as land management, target detection, and disaster monitoring.

Environmental Sensing Special Talk: AFOSR Program on Imaging and Beam Control Through Deep Turbulence.

Monday, 20 October, 19:00 -20:00
Arizona Ballroom Salon 11

Special Guest Speaker: Dr. Michael Roggemann
Abstract: Deep turbulence arises when the combination of optical path length and turbulence strength lead to saturated log amplitude fluctuations in the log amplitude of the field at either the transmit or the receive end of an optical system working in the presence of turbulence. Our team combines both optical and meteorological modeling expertise as we are investigating both overcoming strong turbulence, and using meteorological modeling to help predict the best conditions for propagation. In this presentation we summarize our efforts and progress to date.
