11am-12pm - MARCS Research Meeting 

Topic: Exploring Space Situational Awareness using Neuromorphic Event-based Cameras

Speaker: PhD Candidate Nicholas Ralph

Earth orbit is a limited natural resource that hosts a vast range of vital space-based systems that support the international community's national, commercial and defence interests. This resource is rapidly becoming depleted with over-crowding in high demand orbital slots and a growing presence of space debris. My thesis explores this space situational awareness (SSA) challenge using neuromorphic event-based cameras. In this presentation, I will demonstrate the FIESTA algorithm as a robust, real-time and principled approach to optical SSA to detect, localise and track resident space objects accurately and timely. I will also present the dithering mirror telescope add-on, which is being developed to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the event-based camera.

We thank you for your continued attendance at the MRM's and look forward to seeing you again.
MARCS staff and students are reminded that all meetings and workshops have an important role in building and maintaining the sense of community which is central to the success of MARCS as a cooperative and energetic research institute.  Your attendance is both welcomed and expected.
