Event Description

The University Defence Research Collaboration (UDRC) will be hosting an International Summer School covering topics relating to Signal Processing for Defence, including Detection, Localisation and Tracking, Compressed Sensing, Anomaly Detection and Source Separation and an Industrial Day.

Our aim is to offer an excellent teaching and learning environment which places a limitation of participants and requires an applicant selection process. As experienced from our first UDRC Summer School on Finite Set Statistics, a limitation of 50 students offers perfect conditions for a productive study.


To ensure that participants are equipped to apply this work to practical solutions, the course will be delivered through traditional lectures and tutorials on set exercises supervised by leading experts in the field. In addition the course will include invited international speakers discussing advanced topics.


This course is aimed at researchers in defence, industry, government and academia with interests in Signal Processing for Defence and will be pitched at Masters level.


The objectives of the project are to:

  • Fill a gap in knowledge for signal processing engineering research students and industrial practitioners
  • Facilitate the process of taking new theoretical developments into practical engineering applications
  • Create a focal point for research in Signal Processing for Defence
  • Stimulate new collaborations in this field
