    Microelectronic solutions for digital photography

    MOOC (Online) by Open University · Free · Current

    The human eye is a fascinating and complicated device, but how do digital cameras capture images? This free course, Microelectronic solutions for digital photography, examines one of the humanmachine interfaces that link optical information to the electronic world. You will learn how the components within a digital camera capture images for electronic manipulation.

    UK SAR Workshop

    Seminar (Leeds) by Space Hub Yorkshire · Free · Past

    Space Hub Yorkshire presents the UK SAR Workshop. SAR – Synthetic Aperture Radar – is an active imaging process with applications to environment, civil and defence sectors. SAR sensors can be hosted on satellites, drones or in-situ and have the ability to ‘see through clouds’, meaning that SAR imagery of the Earth can be constructed when optical imagery cannot, for example when it’s cloudy or at night. With the new UK Space Strategy and Defence Space Strategy, there is a big need for the UK to develop its SAR capability as we seek to expand both our civil and defence use of Space data. The UK has world-renowned expertise in SAR, and this workshop is particularly timely because of the status of the UK involvement in Copernicus and the potential failure of ESA SAR satellite Sentinel-1b. Space Hub Yorkshire are hosting a one-day UK SAR Workshop on Monday 11th April, to stimulate discussions across the academic, commercial, civil and defence communities. We hope this will be a great opportunity to bring the whole UK community together. This will be held at Nexus, University of Leeds, with the option to join virtually.

    Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Masterclass

    Seminar (Truro) by Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN) and Truro and Penwith College · Free · Past

    The primary objective of the workshop will be to raise awareness and understanding of the performance and limitations of positioning and timing systems; and to provide information on steps to take to improve performance and resilience. In addition, the workshop will include a look at positioning and timing sources including new approaches such as low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellite constellations and other “sensors of opportunity” such as cameras and audio.
