UDRC: University Defence Research Collaboration in Signal Processing

Signal Processing is fundamental to the capability of all modern sensor weapon systems and the Defence Technology Strategy identified the development and application of signal processing techniques as high priority technical challenges within the MOD research agenda.

The UDRC is a leading partnership between industry, defence and is academia led and focuses on sensor signal processing for defence.

The work within this collaboration has been split into 2 phases of research.

UDRC Phase 1 Research commenced in 2009 and finished in 2013 and explores the two main themes of Classification and Multimodal Fusion and Detection, Localisation and Tracking. This work was led and coordinated by Imperial College London.

UDRC commenced its second phase of work in 2013, an ambitious 5 year project focusing on "Signal Processing in a Networked Battlespace"

This 5 year research programme is jointly led and coordinated by two academic consortia across the UK:
