ATI’s Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging course

This three-day class is designed for engineers, scientists and other remote sensing professionals who wish to become familiar with multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing technology. Students in this course will learn the basic physics of spectroscopy, the types of spectral sensors currently used by government and industry, and the types of data processing used for various applications. Case studies of applications will be used throughout the course

After taking this course, students should be able to communicate and work productively with other professionals in this field. Each student will receive a complete set of notes and the textbook, Remote Sensing of the Environment, an Earth Resource Perspective.

What You Will Learn:

• The limitations on passive optical remote sensing

• The properties of current sensors

• Component modeling for sensor performance

• How to calibrate remote sensors

• The types of data processing used for applications such as spectral angle mapping, multisensor fusion, and pixel mixture analysis

• How to evaluate the performance of different hyperspectral systems

About ATI and the Instructors

Our mission here at ATI is to provide expert training and the highest quality professional development in space, communications, defense, sonar, radar, and signal processing. We are not a one-size-fits-all educational facility. Our short classes include both introductory and advanced courses.

ATI’s instructors are world-class experts who are the best in the business. They are carefully selected for their ability to clearly explain advanced technology.

William Roper, P.E. holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering, Mich. State University and BS and MS in Engineering, University of Wisconsin. He is currently serving as: Research Professor, Geography and GeoInformation Science Dept. George Mason University, a Visiting Professor, Johns Hopkins University, Senior Advisor, Dawson & Associates and President & Founding Board Member, Rivers of the World Foundation and leading a number of consulting efforts with the private sector.

His research interests include remote sensing and geospatial applications, sustainable development, environmental assessment, water resource stewardship, and infrastructure energy efficiency. He teaches graduate courses in the science and technology of remote sensing and GIS applications which include the application of multispectral, hyperspectral, utraspectral and high spatial resolution imagery. Dr. Roper is also the author of four books, over 150 technical papers and scientific journal articles as well as presenting at numerous national and international forums.
