Radar Target Sensing and Recognition in Complex Environments

This webinar will focus on target detection and recognition in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. Topics covered are physical-driven model and data-driven model for target recognition, statistical-driven model and data-driven model for change detection, motion model and data-driven model for ship detection, et al.



Mengdao Xing (Fellow, IEEE) received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Xidian University, Xi’an, China,in 1997 and 2002, respectively. He is a Professor with the National Laboratory of Radar Signal Processing, Xidian University. He holds the appointment of the Associate Dean of the Academy of Advanced Interdisciplinary Research, Xidian Unversity. He has authored or co-authored more than 200 refereed scientific journal articles and two books about synthetic aperture radar (SAR) signal processing. The total number of citations of his research are greater than 8000. He holds more than 40 authorized Chinese patents. His research interests are SAR, inverse synthetic aperture radar(ISAR), sparse signal processing, and microwave remote sensing. Dr. Xing serves as an Associate Editor for radar remote sensing of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING. His research has been supported by various funding programs, such as the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars. He was rated as the Most Cited Chinese Researcher by Elsevier.
