Summary: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) has been around for almost 70 years. Historically dominated by space and military applications. Now commercial applications are emerging and changing the face of SAR.

Bio: Dr. David Jansing is Chief Engineer in the Electromagnetic Systems Group at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Dr. Jansing has more than 20 years’ experience in remote sensing (including maritime applications), signal and image processing, data analysis, interpretation, modeling, optimization, synthetic aperture radar processing and machine learning (including deep learning and evolutionary computation). He currently teaches a graduate level course in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) at Johns Hopkins University in the Whiting School’s Engineering for Professionals program. Dr. Jansing is a recognized expert in remote sensing having won multiple awards, including the JHU APL FY2008 R. W. Hart Prize for Excellence in Independent Research and Development for the Exploitation of Synthetic Aperture Data Products IR&D, the 2011 University of Louisville Distinguished Alumni Award, and the 2018 Whiting School Engineering for Professional Program “Exceptional Online Course Design” for EN 525.748 Synthetic Aperture Radar.
