The innovative research on Remote Sensing/ Digital Image Processing will promote the advancement in technology of many earth-observation related applications, especially in natural disasters, agriculture, fisheries, biodiversity, transport, environmental modelling, and others. Remote sensing research and development will mainly focus on research to understand the fundamental knowledge of the Earth and its biophysical processes and to develop and improve techniques for analysing and interpreting remotely sensed data from earth observation sensors. Various remote sensing based methods and analytical techniques will be explored and developed such as production for libraries of object improvements modules to enhance the technological capabilities for various aspects of satellite tracking and mapping.
The centre will explore to use latest imaging technologies and state-of-the-art sensors (e.g. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Laser Scanning Systems such as Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), Terrestrial Laser Scanning Systems (TLS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Drone-based remote sensors (e.g. Optical, Infrared, Thermal, Hyper-Spectral, LiDAR etc.) for various Earth observation applications and monitoring of environmental phenomenon. The research will provide an environment where faculty, staff, and students can work together to advance knowledge in the application of remote sensing technologies in Ecosystem Science and Natural Resource Management, Environmental Modelling, Radar Technologies, and Advanced Digital Image Processing, in which multidisciplinary approaches to environmental problems will be stressed with plenty of hands-on experience.
