Future Chemical-Biological-Radiological-Nuclear (CBRN) threats could include a chemical explosion at a plant, a use of a nerve agent in an urban environment or a radioactive leak from a facility. Thales Alenia Space (TAS) has been working on currently available satellite data which could contribute to the detection and modelling of such a scenario. Several gaps in the data are apparent: wind field data, chemical detection and radiological detection. These reveal potential areas for future missions. The objectives of the PhD are:
Please note that while this EPSRC iCASE studentship is based at the University of Bristol, it requires that a minimum of three months, usually working one day per week, is spent on site at Thales Alenia Space, Bristol. Candidates will be required to undergo baseline security vetting.
