The Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research (ACSER) was establishedat the University of New South Wales in Sydney to increase Australia's capabilities in the space industry. The centre builds on the well established UNSW strengths of satellite navigation, earth observation and hypersonics, and draws on the huge expertise of Australia's largest Engineering faculty.
*PhD OPPORTUNITIES AT ACSER*
The Australian Space Research Program (ASRP) project "SAR Formation Flying" is based at the centre. Working to user requirements, the project is developing the business case, design and technologies for a constellation of low cost and light-weight Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) spacecraft to image the earth at night and in any weather. These will monitor floods in Australia and have application to forest monitoring for carbon accounting, border protection, oil spill detection, agricultural monitoring and ocean surface current mapping.
We are currently looking for PhD students to assist in this and other projects. Current topics include:
- Deployable Antennas
- Ultracapacitor Power Supplies
- Image Processing
- GNSS Receiver Design
- GNSS/SAR Signals
- Radar Applications
