Funded PhD Project for Students Worldwide

PhD Project: High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing

The research project is concerned with development and implementation of signal and image processing algorithms for predicting a distortion function when viewing an artificial satellite or large space debris objects thorough atmospheric turbulence and with the aid of a 60 cm to 100 cm optical telescope. The project focuses on novel computational methods and algorithm development to implement methods such as atmospheric tomography to achieve real-time performance. This project is in collaboration with other adaptive optics and computational imaging groups, such as University of New South Wales in Canberra, however the majority of work will be completed at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch New Zealand.
