The objectives of this subject are to develop students' theoretical and practical understanding on active and passive sensing, sensor selection, evaluation, modelling, interfacing, signal processing, imaging and image processing. Topics include modulation techniques, filtering and convolution, frequency domain analysis, visual imaging and image processing, infrared imaging, passive microwave imaging, time of flight (TOF) measurement, radio tags and transponders, range tacking, doppler measurement and phase measurement. Some advanced topics such as probability of detection, angle measurement and tracking, frequency modulation, wide aperture methods, Synthetic Aperture Methods (SAR) and 3D imaging are also included.
