  • Brief Bio

    Batu holds a B.Sc. in telecommunications engineering and a Ph.D. in synthetic aperture radar interferometry time-series analysis. His dissertation was selected to be the most original research, and he is the winner of the University of Miami Rosenstiel School F.G. Walton Smith Prize for 2013. His primary area of expertise is radar remote sensing, and he has worked on applications for observing surface deformation, measuring target velocities, boosting signal-to-noise ratio in target detection algorithms, and radar design and instrumentation.

    Since June 2013, he is a contracting scientist for Universities Space Research Association, for which he is employed at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. He is working on the instrument and algorithm development of P- and L-band digital beam forming synthetic aperture radar systems. He took part in the P-band EcoSAR system development, testing, and integration phases. He attended the 2014 Tampa-Costa Rica flight campaign as one of the four radar operators.

    In 2011, he co-founded, BOS Technologies, LLC, a geodetic analysis and consulting company. He also works at International Association for Hydrogen Energy as an Internet editor. In his free time, he helps to create new features for TU-Delft's DORIS software, and he is the core developer of the automated DORIS environment (ADORE-DORIS).

    He is a member of the IEEE and American Geophysical Union, and co-chairs committees under Turkish American Scholars and Scientists Association (TASSA) and International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote-Sensing Technical Committee 7. He is also acting as the Managing Director for TASSA. He is a co-investigator for several radar remote sensing projects, for which he uses radar satellite imagery operated by European, German, Italian, Japanese and Canadian Space Agencies, NASA's airborne sensors DBSAR, ECOSAR and UAVSAR, and GAMMA's Ground Based Radar Interferometer.

    Research Interests

    Radar Remote Sensing

    Radar remote sensing uses microwave instruments to gather information about targets at a distance. 



    Current Projects

    EcoSAR

     EcoSAR is a new P-band airborne radar instrument developed at the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) for the polarimetric and interferometric measurements of ecosystem structure and biomass.
