Welcome to IMPRESS LAB!

Information Processing and Sensing (IMPRESS) Lab does research on opportunistic and conventional microwave remote sensing from satellite scales to small aerial platforms in environmental sustainability. Our research focuses on recycling the radio spectrum to address the challenges of decreasing radio spectrum space for science while exploring entirely new microwave regions for land remote sensing. To this end, we harness various man-made, non-cooperative Signals of Opportunity (SoOp) which we measure using sensory platforms as widely available as smartphones in addition to dedicated, custom-made instruments to enable a myriad of practical solutions in precision agriculture, forestry, and water conservation. Our research is grouped into six major thrusts

RESEARCH in NUTSELL

Our research is grouped into six major thrusts:

  • – Spectrum Sensing, Coexistence & Recycling
  • – EM Modeling & Simulation
  • – Information Retrievals & Geospatial Intelligence
  • – RF Testbed for Digital Agriculture
  • – Off-road Robotics & Mobility
  • – Ubiquitous RF Sensing

We do a lot of work developing algorithms, developing software in the lab, but it is always implemented on actual robotic platforms (e.g., satellites, drones, and rovers) in the field.
