Remote Sensing Text Olsen

My primary research interests are in remote sensing, with an emphasis on the general problem of target detection. I have been working with optical and radar data from a variety of civilian and national systems. Primary areas of effort in the last few years have been in the area of spectral imagery, utilizing the visible to short-wave infrared HYDICE sensor, and the mid- to long-wave infrared SEBASS sensor.  Lately, I have been working more with the commercial remote sensing systems, Quickbird and IKONOS,   I used to work more in space physics, particularly satellite charge control.
