    Summary form only given. Achieving accurate pedestrian detection for practically relevant scenarios in real-time is an important problem for many applications, while representing a major scientific challenge at the same time. We present a human detection framework which efficiently computes pedestrian-specific shape and motion cues and combines them in a probabilistic manner to infer the location ... View full abstract»

    We report the utilization of synthetic diamond grown by chemical-vapour-deposition (CVD) for use as metal-semiconductor field-effect-transistors (MESFETs). The lack of a shallow n-type donor means that diamond-based electronic devices are unipolar (p-type). The devices presented in this paper are based on delta-doping. Delta-doping stands for the use of very thin (<5 mm) highly doped (NA View full abstract»

    A physically based sea clutter model is used to calculate the statistics of sea clutter. The mean radar cross section (RCS) is found to match experimental results and the second moment is found to be consistent with the resolution dependence of the clutter shape parameter. The correlation structure predicted by the model is found, on average, to be consistent with real data, but the latter also sh... View full abstract»

    The non-linear synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technique uses a combination of platform manoeuvre and novel processing to separate the effects of a target's radial velocity and cross-range displacement, giving accurate estimates of both. The technique provides high resolution images free from the image distortion caused in conventional SAR imagery by moving targets, and allows the accurate target l... View full abstract»

    In the context of investigating coherent SAR data for battle damage assessment, we examine the ability to detect changes in objects using synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) observations. The emphasis is on targets which are a few resolution cells in extent. Both coherent and non-coherent methods are studied. Coherent methods are effective when clutter coherence is high. The correlation between intensi... View full abstract»

    The problem of electromagnetic wave scattering from a rough interface is a non-trivial but rather well-known subject, through the advances made over the last years. The study focuses here on a stack of two rough interfaces (a layer): the objective is to dispose of a fast analytical method which can predict the bistatic radar cross section from a rough layer. The approach used here, which has not b... View full abstract»

    Several distinctive capabilities of satellite-based synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems make them a powerful tool for Earth observation purposes. In fact, SAR systems can provide an efficient, quick and cost effective coverage of any area independently from weather effects and from the day-night cycle. Nevertheless, the automatic interpretation of SAR images usually constitutes a complicated ta... View full abstract»
