Sensor Technology

The objective of the course is to provide an in-depth understanding of basic physical principles and characteristic features in sensor technology, design, function and applications of different sensors.

  • Understand the basic principles of sensor systems required for satellites and tactical aircraft
  • Understand the atmospheric propagation and its impact on the performance of sensors
  • Troubleshoot, repair/replace a faulty sensor in optimize process efficiency
  • Physical principles underlying the sensor systems needed for satellites and tactical aircraft, as well as limitations imposed by the atmosphere and operating environment on these systems and their communication links
  • Phased array and pulsed compressed radars, imaging synthetic aperture and inverse synthetic aperture radars
  • Atmospheric propagation of signal. Noise resources and thermal radiation
  • Principles of semiconductor devices. Optical and infrared imaging detector systems
  • Detector resolution limitations and bandwidth requirements, Relationship between signals and noise
  • The characteristics of critical sensor functions (including detection, estimation, imaging, and tracking)
