    Abstract: Modern warfare is carried out in a complex electromagnetic environment, where noise suppression interference directly affects the detection ability of airborne warning radar to target, in order to make airborne warning radar play its due role in battlefield. More and more requirements are put forward for radar combat capability in complex electroma... Show More

    Abstract: The traditional method involved in the classification of surface types such as water, ice, and snow rely on thresholds values of spectral properties that are fixed. However, the use of daily fixed thresholds leaves a substantial number of either unclassified and/or misclassified ice and water pixels. In this study, a new dynamic threshold technique... Show More
  • An Assessment of the Role of Water Hyacinth in the Water Level Changes of Lake Naivasha Using GIS and Remote Sensing

    Abstract: Lake Naivasha is an important water resource for Kenya being a fresh-water lake in a region dominated by salty-water lakes. The lake supports several human activities around it. Its water level, though fluctuates, was gradually declining before 2010. The water level rose from March 2010 and has since remained relatively high. As a result, areas aro... Show More
  • Very High Resolution Mapping with the Pléiades Satellite Constellation

    Roland Perko, Hannes Raggam, Mathias Schardt, Peter Michael Roth

    Published: 24 December 2018
    Abstract: The Pléiades satellite constellation provides very high resolution multi-spectral optical data at a ground sampling distance of about 0.7 m at nadir direction. Due to the highly agile pointing angle capacity in the range of ±47 degrees the sensors are optimal for detailed earth observation. They are able to collect stereo and tri-stereo datasets in...
