Detection of airport runways in optical satellite images
Zöngür, Uğur; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Advances in hardware and pattern recognition techniques, along with the widespread utilization of remote sensing satellites, have urged the development of automatic target detection systems. Automatic detection of airports is particularly essential, due to the strategic importance of these targets. In this thesis, a detection method is proposed for airport runways, which is the most distinguishing element of an airport. This method, which operates on large optical satellite images, is composed of a segmenta...
Detection of reservoir water levels using landsat remote sensing data over Ermenek and Altınkaya dams
Şenocak, Ali Ulvi Galip; Yılmaz, M. Tuğrul.; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
Detection of water border using remote sensing observations at the visible bands and incorporating them with the digital elevation map is a useful approach for detecting water volume of dams and the water bodies with existing DEM images. In this study, NDWI, NDPI, WI2015 and AWEI indices retrieved using Landsat 8 images and ASTER/SRTM DEM maps are utilized to infer about the water levels of Ermenek and Altınkaya dams’ reservoir water levels. To reduce the water level retrieval errors during the cloudy and t...
Detection of Conducting and Dielectric Objects Buried under a Layer of Asphalt or Concrete Using Simulated Ground Penetrating Radar Signals
DOĞAN, MESUT; GÜMÜŞ, SİNEM; Sayan, Gönül (2017-09-15)
Ground-penetrating radars (GPRs) are ultra-wideband microwave sensors mainly used for detection and identification of mines and other explosive objects buried in soil or hidden under road construction layers. In this study, we investigated effects of having different construction layers over the soil surface in buried object detection problem using A-scan GPR data. A novel preprocessing technique that makes use of cumulative energy curves of A-scan signals is used for preprocessing and target detection in ...
Determination of buried circular cylinder with ground penetrating radar using an optical fiber sensor
Bulur, Hatice Gonca; Şahin, Asaf Behzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
The terms ‘ground-probing radar’, ‘ground penetrating radar (GPR)’, ‘sub-surface radar’ or ‘surface-penetrating radar (SPR)’ refer to various techniques for detecting and imaging of subsurface objects. Among those terms GPR is preferred and used more often. In this thesis, the depth and the position of the buried circular cylinder are determined by a GPR system which comprises of an optical fiber sensor (OFS). The system is a combination of OFS, GPR and optical communication link. In order to determine the ...
Detection of mini/micro unmanned air vehicle (UAV) under clutter presence and environmental effects
Dere, İsmail Gökhan; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Detection, tracking and classification of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) is an emerging and crucial capability of radars in recent years. In the presence of clutter such as a crowded city or a foggy weather above sea surface, mini and micro UAVs become very difficult for radars to detect, track and classify. Classification information of UAV targets can be very useful for the critical infrastructures in order to provide security. Examined studies imply that kinematic and characteristic features such as Dopple...
