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.

UDRC Phase 1

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 Phase 2

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 was jointly led and coordinated by two academic consortia across the UK:

UDRC Phase 3

Phase 3 commenced on 1st July 2018 and is a 5 year project. The work entitled "Signal Processing in the Information Age" will develop new underpinning Signal Processing and Machine Learning tools for the defence community.
