3rd Institute of Space Sciences Summer School and 1st IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) Instrumentation and Future Technologies (IFT)

The Institute of Space Sciences (Institut de Ciencies de l'Espai - ICE) is organizing its 3rd Institute of Space  Sciences Summer School, which in this edition is linked to the 1st IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) Instrumentation and Future Technologies (IFT) Remote Sensing Summer School (IFT-R3S).

The objective of the first Summer School on Instrumentation and Future Technologies for Remote Sensing is to promote future research in remote sensing, to connect future PhD students to research topics under the IEEE GRSS IFT Technical Committee, and to highlight the educational activities of the GRSS society. This IFT-R3S is meant to be the first of an itinerant series (annual or biannual) of IFT-R3S editions, moving to different towns and continents and hosted by other Instrumentation and Future Technologies Technical Committee (IFT-TC) groups. 

The topics of this edition are:

  • SAR principles, modes of operation, spaceborne instrument, processing, interferometric SAR, bi-static SAR
  • reflectometry using Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and other Sources of OPportunity (SoOP)
  • Lidar principles, Lidar applications, instruments and processing techniques
