Leonardo Carrer (PhD student at RSLab) won the 2016 Best Student Paper Award at the “SPIE Conference on Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring”, Edinburgh, UK, 26-29September 2016 with the paper  “A bat-inspired technique for clutter reduction in radar sounder systems”

RSLab is the Coordinator (Principal Investigator) of STRATUS (SaTellite Radar sounder for eArTh sUb-surface Sensing), which is a new satellite mission concept based on a radar sounder for Earth Observation. STRATUS aims at studying for the first time from satellite the subsurface of the Earth. STRATUS main goals are the 3D monitoring at global scale of both icy areas (including Antarctica, Arctic and large glaciers) and desert areas. The project, funded by the Italian Space Agency, aims at studying and further developing the mission concept and the radar payload.

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.
