Scaled Synthetic Aperture Radar System Development

ABSTRACT

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems generate two dimensional images of a target area using RF energy as opposed to light waves used by cameras. When cloud cover or other optical obstructions prevent camera imaging over a target area, SAR Continue reading

Concatenative Synthesis for Novel Timbral Creation

ABSTRACT

Modern day musicians rely on a variety of instruments for musical expression. Tones produced from electronic instruments have become almost as commonplace as those produced by traditional ones as evidenced by the plethora of artists who can be Continue reading

Digital Guitar Effects Unit and Amplifier

ABSTRACT

This report outlines the design and implementation of a digital guitar effects unit and amplifier. The main portion of this project consisted of the digital equalizer and effects. Several commercial equalizers were researched in order to decide the typical Continue reading

Face and Lip Localization in Unconstrained Imagery

ABSTRACT

When combined with acoustical speech information, visual speech information (lip movement) significantly improves Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) in acoustically noisy environments. Previous research has demonstrated that visual modality Continue reading
