Digital Signal/Image Processing Laboratory

The Digital Signal/Image Processing Laboratory at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Colorado State University (CSU) is involved with both theoretical and applied research activities in various areas of signal and image processing. Current activities include: sonar signal processing for underwater target detection and classification; sensor array processing; synthetic aperture sonar processing; detection, classification and localization of natural and man-made sound sources; collaborative detection and classification in multiple sensor environments; collaborative distributed signal processing and decision-making; adaptable text and image retrieval systems.

Some of the short and long-term goals of the laboratory include:

  • Identification and development of new application areas for military, medical, industrial, entertainment, and energy arenas.
  • Development of strategic plans to form a consortium with local industry and universities to pursue external funding support.
  • Development of strategic plans for expansion to a center of research excellence at CSU.
