Students may apply to one or more of the below projects, indicating this in their statement of interest, or they may apply for "AAE: General," indicating in their statement of interest their skills and background and some faculty with whom they would be interested in working. AAE Faculty List
|Title||Name||Project Name||Project Description||Requirements|
|Prof.||James L. Garrisonemail@example.com||Earth Remote Sensing using Signals of Opportunity||This research project will involve the assembly and test of a instruments for Earth remote sensing using “reflectometry”, which is based upon observing changes in the structure of a radio frequency signal reflected from the ocean surface. These changes are related to the air-sea interaction process on the ocean surface and can be used to estimate the wind speed through empirical models.||Electrical engineering or applied physics,
Students should have a solid background in signal processing. Excellent programming skills in C and MATLAB. Some knowledge of electromagnetic wave propagation and the mathematics or stochastic processes/random variables highly desirable. Hardware experience also highly desirable.
