The “Pavia 2012 International School on Data Fusion and Target Detection from Airborne and Spaceborne Data" is the second in a series of International Summer Schools held in Pavia in early September, following the first edition in 2011 on “Data Fusion and High Performance Computing”, which was very successful and appreciated.
The new edition aims at providing to the interested students the basic knowledge on:
• problems related to target detection in various types of airborne and spaceborne remotely sensed data, including relevant and efficient data fusion approaches;
• available approaches to build efficient solutions for such problems in an operational and applicative environment;
• high‐performance computing as a tool to tackle the sometimes high computational resource demands of target detection algorithms.
Target detection and data fusion issues are typical in modern aircrafts, whose sensors are capable of providing large amounts of data of different kinds, which need to be suitably dealt with in view of turning them in real time into useful information to the pilot or to the ground control stations. This requires on the one side to develop effective data fusion strategies and on the other to implement them at a sufficient speed to timely deliver results.
