<detailed description here>

Main optical constituents of an infrared system: infrared scene, atmosphere, optics, detector

Basic rules in infrared system design, using criteria such as NETD (noise equivalent temperature difference, MRTD (minimum resolvable temperature difference) …

Embedded vision for autonomous navigation of mini drones - Room2: 14h00-15h30

Guy Le Besnerais, Senior Scientist at Onera, Palaiseau, France

<detailed description here>

Major results and actual trends of embedded vision

Vision-based navigation of drones in unknown and cluttered environment

Atmospheric lidar - Room2: 15h45-17h15

Laurent Lombard, Senior Scientist at Onera, Palaiseau, France

<detailed description here>

Lidars or laser radars are increasingly used in the study of atmosphere or for aircraft safety. This tutorial is an introduction to lidar technologies and their applications.

  • Overview of various Lidar technologies and configurations for atmospheric applications: coherent and incoherent lidars, elastic and inelastic lidars, differential absorption (DIAL) lidars,...
  • a few examples of atmospheric lidar applications: analysis of aerosols, CO2 monitoring, wind profilers, turbulence monitoring,...
