Signal Processing section creates and implements technologies which extract information from signals and imagery, and use the extracted information to inform decisions and control complex systems. This broad competency combines an understanding of the underlying physical processes, statistical analysis, and sophisticated mathematical techniques used to extract quantitative information from corrupted observations and models.
