The work on sensors focuses on microwave sensors for airborne and spaceborne remote sensing applications. The research covers all aspects of microwave sensors including components, circuits, signal processing, instruments, operation, data acquisition and data processing.

The major effort has been on polarimetric and interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems (e.g. EMISAR), Synthetic Aperture Interferometric Radiometers and real aperture radiometers (e.g. EMIRAD), and Ice Sounders.
