Summary on Grant Application Form
As well as encouraging staff to explore more adventurous research ideas and applications, the IESSG's strategic research strategy identifies three priority areas of core research for the next five years:- Applications of satellite navigation systems such as GPS (particularly environmental and engineering applications) Developments related to the European Galileo satellite navigation system- Techniques and applications related to imaging and remote sensing systems (space-based, airborne and terrestrial).These themes have been selected, noting EPSRC priorities [Strategic Plan: 2003 - 2007; online Science Vision], following discussions with industry, and with reference to the expertise and experience of the academic and research staff at Nottingham. The areas are not only of interest scientifically, but are likely to form the basis of much of the institutional and industrial research and development work in our field in the coming 5 years. The more focussed strategy within this Platform Grant is for the staff employed to help initiate and develop specific new areas of research within these themes (of which only some are extensions to work that is currently active or in which there has been some involvement in recent years). To this end, five detailed topics have been developed from the high-level research themes to act as the focus for efforts within this proposal. Two of the topics will involve adventurous/high risk research, whilst the other three are more closely related to existing strategic areas of development1. The use of positioning systems as a supporting technology to adventurous, multidisciplinary research2. A series of potentially high-risk developments related to eScience and GRID computing3. The identification, measurement, prediction and mitigation of propagation errors associated with satellite positioning systems such as atmospheric effects, multipath, and issues associated with indoor operations.4. The use of GPS/INS as an enabling technology in the field of space-based, airborne and terrestrial remote sensing.5. Integrated sensors and the development of application-driven (bespoke) Kalman filter-based optimisation systems.
