RSLab News

RSLab is the Principal Investigator (Prime contractor) of a project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) on the analysis of multitemporal images acquired by the ESA Sentinel 2 satellite constellation.

The project aims at defining the scientific methods and the related prototype algorithms for addressing three main challenges with the multispectral and multiresolution Sentinel 2 images:
1) change detection; 2) analysis of image time series; 3) updating of land-cover maps.

The algorithms should be tested on three full European countries in view of the definition of global products.

The project CRYOMON-SciPro (Improve the Science of Processes within the Cryosphere by Integrating Hydrological Modelling with Remote Sensing in a Multi-Level Data Fusion Approach – a Contribution to Cryosphere Monitoring in the EUREGIO Region) has been selected. RSLab is one of the key partners of the project. The project is focused on the fusion and integration of remote sensing techniques with other data sources and with modeling for Cryosphere.

RSLab is involved on a new project approved by Italian Space Agency on the development of an airborne radar with both nadir looking sounding and synthetic aperture imaging capabilities.

The radar will work in P band and is developed for applications related to criosphere, water detection in arid/desert areas, archaeology and forestry.

Prof. Bruzzone will give an invited  keynote Talk as Distingushed Lecturer at the Viriginia Chapter of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sesnsing Society in Maryland on November 6, 2015

Francesca Bovolo has been nominated Associate Editor of Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (JARS). JARS is a publication of the SPIE international society for optics and photonics.

Lorenzo Bruzzone is the recipient of the very prestigious  “2015 Outstanding Service Award” presented by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). This is a major award and one of the highest honors in the remote sensing field presented  to recognize an individual who has given outstanding service for the benefit and advancement of the geoscience and remote sensing society. The main factors considered for assigning the award are: international leadership, innovation, outstanding activity, breadth of cooperation and participation. The award is considered annually but not presented if a suitable candidate is not identified.

Prof. Bruzzone is the first Italian scientist of ever recipient of this very prestigious award.

NASA announced the selection of REASON (Radar for Europa Assessment and Sounding: Ocean to Near-surface) in the payload for the mission to the Jovianmoon Europa expected to be launched after 2020. REASON is an Ice Penetrating Radaraimed to study the sub-surface of Europa until a depth of 30 km!
The Principal Investigator of REASON is Prof. Donald Blankenship of University of Texas Austin. RSLab is deeply involved in REASON as this is the result of a long and intense activity of study and design of complex radar instruments for the study of the JupiterIce moons developed by a large team of international experts under the leadership of Prof. Blankenship and Prof. Bruzzone.
