Corso di studio
Space Communication and Sensing
Secondo Semestre (06/03/2019 - 14/06/2019)
45 ore di attività frontale
SCRITTO E ORALE CONGIUNTI
First-level knowledge of: physics, chemistry, mathematical analysis. Having attended the “Satellite Data Analysis” course helps, but this course is designed so that it can also be taken alone.
Basic knowledge of data produced by remote sensing and information that can be extracted from them. Capability to evaluate the usefulness of different types of data to solve a given problem of detection, tracking, classification or even more complex ones. Basic skills in processing remotely sensed images through dedicated - and also general - software. Radar remote sensing is emphasized, although not treated exclusively, and industry-related applications are stressed thank to the tight connection with the Lombardy Aerospace Industry Cluster.
