KoRaTo Seminar (Lecture Series)

The Research Training Group "Kooperative Apertursynthese für Radar-Tomographie“ (KoRaTo, engl: Cooperative aperture synthesis for tomographic radar imaging) is a joint project between the Ulm University (UUlm) and the Friedrich-Alexander-University (FAU) Erlangen-Nuremberg under the direction of Prof. Christian Waldschmidt.

It aims at developing a new UAV- and radar-based geophysical monitoring system to measure for instance earth mass movements, vegetation heights, or the cryosphere.

Principal research aspects are

  • synthesis of cooperative measurements into a common 3D image;
  • UAV-swarm coordination and trajectory optimization to achieve a common multistatic aperture;
  • storage and resource management;
  • tomographic imaging in inhomogeneous media;

In the KoRaTo seminar, presentations on different topics within the various KoRaTo research areas are provided. Current developments are reported and the different research areas are presented.  In addition, basic topics related to KoRaTo will be addressed and overview presentations will be given.

A detailed list of lectures and dates can be found in the current program.
