Eduard Angelats holds a M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering from Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in 2008, where he currently is an Aerospace Science and Technology PhD student. He has a previous research background in image processing from his experience at the Institute of Imaging and Computer Vision (RWTH Aachen University, Germany). In 2009, he joined as a research assistant the former Institute of Geomatics, where he was involved in the development of innovative trajectory determination systems based on robust and hybrid navigation and focused on alternative applications. Since January 2014 is with CTTC, where he is a researcher of the GEON department as part of the Geomatics division.

His research is related to the development and implementation of algorithms for multi sensor based positioning in GNSS unfriendly environments, and algorithms for the fusion of camera and LiDAR data, for both RPAS and mobile mapping platforms. This line is directly related with the department research lines, in which he actively contributed to their definition. In the last years, he has also started to investigate the potential of using multispectral imagery, from RPAS or Sentinel-2, together with advanced processing techniques for the detection of archaeological non-superficial remains and for water quality control for aquaculture applications. This line is also fully related to new platforms and paradigms of high-resolution geodata acquisition, one of the research lines of the GEON department.

He has been involved in several European projects, funded by grants from the European Commission (such as the Seventh Framework or H2020 programmes): IOPES, ATENEA, GINSEC, ENCORE, CLOSE-SEARCH; Nationally funded grants: ARCHREMOTLANDS, ATENEA+, GeoTRAM, DECIVEL; and Industrial projects: CATERPILLAR, PERIGEO, ASRAIM. He is also actively involved in the maintenance, improvement and finding new applications or uses of the GEMMA testbed. Since 2015, he has participated in the preparation of 25 European, National and Industrial proposals, being in 7 the CTTC promoter and in 3 of them the proposal promoter. He has participated in the organization of several specialized courses as well as the IOPES users’ meeting in 2020. He also has been invited as lecturer in other specialized courses.

He is co-author of 1 journal papers and 25 conference papers, and he has supervised and co-supervised 3 TFG thesis and 2 TFM theses. He is also a lecturer of Master’s degree in Applications and Technologies for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UPC) and invited lecturer of master’s degree in Advanced Studies in Archaeology (UB). Finally, he is part of the scientific team of the Roman and Late antique city of Pollentia (Mallorca, Spain).
