GRSS Webinar: Tracking flying targets using High-speed Infrared Imaging
This webinar will cover techniques that we’ve developed at Telops using trajectory tracker with a Telops High-Speed infrared camera capable of reaching up to 3000 fps full frame we successfully tracked re-entry space probe models of few tens of milliliters in diameter flying at velocities of several hundreds of m/s and measure its in-flight surface temperature.
Stéphane Albon Boubanga Tombet was born in 1978 in the republic of the Congo, he received his MS and PhD degrees in condensed matter physics from Montpellier 2 University in France in 2005 and 2008, respectively. From 2008 to 2009, he worked for Montpellier 2 University as a teacher and research assistant. From 2009 to 2011, he joined the Research Institute of Electrical Communication, Tohoku University, in Sendai Japan, as a postdoctoral researcher granted by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). After that he worked for Los Alamos National Labs in New Mexico, USA as a postdoctoral researcher until Jun 2013. He is currently working as an Associate Professor at the Research Institute of Electrical Communication, Tohoku University. He has authored about 43 peer-reviewed papers cited more than 1000 times according to Web of Knowledge with an h-index of 17. His current research interests include III-V based plasmonics based emitters and receivers in the mid and far Infrared regions, graphene based materials/devices, graphene active plasmonics and their infrared and terahertz applications.
