EECS researchers are building innovative signal processing techniques that exploit noise and interference for additional information or as cover for covert messages. They are developing static/adaptive filtering schemes that will better enable cooperative communication systems and networks. Remote sensing research of the polar ice caps has led to numerous developments in signal processing. New techniques and methods are being explored in computer vision, digital image processing, optical sensors, and other current EECS research.
