UDRC Industrial Day

Come along and hear about the research in signal processing for defence where a number of case studies will be presented explaining the challenges and successes of the research. The outputs will be exhibited through a series of practical demonstrations. These case studies will showcase the collaborations between academia and industry.

There will also be an opportunity to hear about UDRC research at interactive poster sessions throughout the day and find out more from the Knowledge Transfer Networks and the Centre for Defence and Enterprise.
