The workshop will focus on new and improved methods, techniques and applications for data processing of (electro-optical) sensors on airborne and space platforms. Processing and imaging for such sensors is a challenging task. The causes lie in the mostly complicated detectors and sensors, which have a large radiometric dynamic, and require special correction and pre-processing tasks. On the other hand, these sensors can be spatially, radiometrically and spectrally calibrated. They often require additional effort in terms of ego-localization and orientation. In addition, a permanent (also automatic) determination of the sensor performance (spatial, radiometric and spectral) is necessary. The aim of this workshop is to bring together engineers and scientists from academia, industry and government to exchange results and ideas for future applications of electro-optical remote sensing.
Topics include, but not limited, to:
Other important points for sensor and platform description are calibration standards, testing standards and image quality assurance procedures.
Advances in the miniaturisation, performance and low cost sensors, has allowed researchers access to camera technology for wide-ranging applications.
Developments in sensor fusion and the proliferation of platforms offers researchers opportunities to extend the range of devices available. However, there is still a need to provide quality assurance of sensors, such as calibration, to minimise artefacts and bias in the data received and facilitate high-quality processing.
