Signal Processing is fundamental to the capacity of all modern sensor/weapon systems. The University Defence Research Centre (UDRC) is concerned with fundamental research in Signal Processing with emphasis given to areas that play a substantial role in improving the performance of defence systems.
The main mission of UDRC is to maintain the global leading position of UK in defence related signal processing research and applications. In order to achieve this, UDRC is aiming to promote fundamental research in signal processing and related areas, particularly with application to defence related industry. At the same time UDRC aims to provide a forum to invite and engage signal processing researchers from academia, industry and government to tackle open but significant challenges in the field.
Currently there are 30 research projects running in the centre. From these, 17 come from the EPSRC-DSTL Open Call, 6 from the Core Research at Imperial College and 7 are DSTL Internal research project. More specifically the following projects are part of the MOD-UDRC.
