Super-Resolution Imaging Given a number of low resolution Images of a scene (terrain), generate a spatially super-resolved image of the same scene (terrain). IITB investigator has used ‘blur’ as a cue in super- resolving images. EE : Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri ISRO Collaborator : Dr. K. L. Majumdar SAC, Ahmedabad. SAC/ISRO Requirement To super-resolve the satellite generated multi-band images. Should be a ground-based method of post processing. Scope for Collaboration Commonly attempted blur or spatial shift as a cue cannot be used here. Need to look for a suitable cue. Need to devise a method for cue fusion. Evaluation of the know-how generated on real data.

Obvious examples are vibration analysis for a spacecraft. Designing a chip which will produce a floating point FFT from a stream of time domain data. The input data will be typically from an A to D converter - and can be upto 16 bit wide. Will test the design using a fast commercially available A to D converter and an FPGA chip from Xylinx. Subsequently, the design will be fabricated as an ASIC. Initial simulations indicate may be able to handle data rates as high as 50 M Samples per second where each sample is 16 bits wide. Thus, the speed will be essentially limited by the A to D conversion rate. All internal operations are in 32bit floating point format. Sensors & MEMS Our Current Focus Areas: • Ion Sensitive Field Effect Transistors (expertise with the electrolyte-insulator-semiconductor systems) • Cantilever Structures for Bio-MEMS • Microfluidic structures for single cell electroporation and capillary electrophoresis Continuing Education Programmes We can offer in-house training programmes in practically all areas of Electrical Engineering including Communication Networks, DSP, Antennas and microwaves, Speech Processing, VLSI Design, Nanotechnology, CAD Tools, MEMS, Embedded Systems, Emerging Technologies, etc. Concluding Remarks There is already good collaboration between EE Department & ISRO. The time is now ripe for more long range projects wider in scope and stronger in impact.
