The development of satellite remote sensing (SRS) and the exploration of SRS-based data are active fields of research and expertise at The University of Western Australia.
Satellites provide a uniquely efficient way of making repetitive observations of Earth's land, coast and oceans that allow for a wide range of applications, especially as past observations now provide decades of data to analyse.
Our research teams, overseen by Professor Charitha Pattiaratchi, focus on:

Our research team, led by Professor Lorenzo Faraone, is developing world-leading electro-optic sensors, imaging devices, and electronic systems for space-based earth observation and space situational awareness.
We focus on:
We are also active developers of cutting-edge quantum sensing technologies, working in collaboration with UWA Professor Michael Tobar of the Quantum Technologies and Dark Matter Research Lab.
