The delegation from Beijing Research Institute of Remote Sensing Equipment in SPbPU
The delegation from Beijing Research Institute of Remote Sensing Equipment led by the researcher Mr. Zhang Xiaofeng has visited Peter the Great Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University.
The objective of the Chinese scientists' visit is the expansion of scientific contacts and experience exchange on radio engineering and telecommunications.
"We are well familiar with the resources and experience of your university and we think that our cooperation may be productive for a variety of reasons. The first one is the unique educational programs of the Polytechnic University. They are known all over the world and they meet high requirements of the international scientific community", – Mr. Zhang XIAOFENG said.
In return, the head of SPbPU Department of International Scientific and External Economic Relations S.S. ANTONOV emphasized that "cooperation between Polytech and China is long-term contracts with reputable universities and research centers. Today, more than 750 Chinese students study in our university. We hope that after graduating from Polytech each of them will contribute to the development of China's industry.
The head of the Radiophysics Department of the Institute of Physics, Nanotechnology and Telecommunications prof. L.B. Liokumovich and also associate professors of this department E.L. Svechnikov and A.V. Medvedev made the Beijing delegation familiar with SPbPU's project activity in remote sensing, which includes basic research, laboratory work, field observations, gathering data from aircrafts and artificial satellites. Prof. Liokumovich told the Chinese counterparts about the experimental part of the University's research and shared his opinion on possible ways of future development.
"The specialists of our Research Institute will participate in short-term educational programs of the Polytechnic University with great pleasure. We are ready to send them to raise their skill level for the purpose in order to acquire new knowledge", - Mr. Zhang XIAOFENG explained.
Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object, and hereby being in contrast to on site observation. In modern usage, the term generally refers to detecting electromagnetic radiation with the use of different cameras, scanners, microwave receivers, radio-locators, and other devices. Remote sensing with the use of ships, aircrafts, spacecrafts, and ground-based telescopes is used to gather and record data about the ocean floor, Earth's atmosphere, and the Solar System.
