Global vegetation mapping using synthetic aperture radar
This laboratory proposes
many methods to monitor the landcover of earth surface by using microwave (L, C,
and X bands) to know the characteristics of vegetation, especially
interferometric and polarimetric SAR techniques are employed to retrieve the
tree informations, including 3D tree mapping.
Mapping of snow area in tropical area
This laboratory employs the polarimetric -
interferometric SAR (Pol-InSAR) and develop original methods to monitor the snow
cover in tropical area, especially at Papua island. This research is focused to
retrieve the correlation between snow change and global
Natural resources mapping using SAR technique
The main objective of this research is to mapping the
natural resources by interpret the earth surface using synthetic aperture radar.
We collaborate with many agency relating the mineral exploration to map the
global natural resources, especially in Asian countries. The multi polarization
microwave is employed to find the accuracy natural resources map. This result is
also used to develop new sensor in our laboratory
Three dimension city mapping using old maps and satellite
This important research
is done to build 'Asian spatial database program' using remote sensing and GIS
technique. This program is established to promote the Asian infrastructure,
especially the spatial information infrastructure. In this program, we collect
the old maps as reference to make scale 1:50 000 maps whole of Asian countries.
Development of high resolution - ultra wide band SAR
developes many types of next generation sensors for earth surface
We propose the synthetic aperture radar that has high resolution
and multi bands. In the future, this sensor could be employed to retrieve detail
information of earth surface, including natural resources or minerals,
vegetation, city mapping, snow area etc.
Development of 3D Weather
In this research, we develop
original 3D Weather Radar that works in 5 GHz and 13 GHz. This radar will be
installed in many sites around Asian countries to profiling the cloud to
investigate the phenomenon in hydrosphere.
Development of microstrip antennas for SAR and mobile
This is an unique research theme in this laboratory. In this research, we
develop many types of original shape of microstrip antennas for SAR and mobile
satellite communications. Recently, we received many awards and research grants
relating this research.
