Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) often rely on GPS for navigation. GPS signals, however, are very low in power and easily jammed or otherwise disrupted. This paper presents a method for determining the navigation errors present at the beginning of a GPS-denied period utilizing data from a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system. This is accomplished by comparing an online-generated SAR image with a reference image obtained a priori.

Matrix factorization with sparsity constraints plays an important role in many machine learning and signal processing problems such as dictionary learning, data visualization, dimension reduction. Among the most popular tools for sparse matrix factorization are proximal algorithms, a family of algorithms based on proximal operators. In this paper, we address two problems with the application of proximal algorithms to sparse matrix factorization. On the one hand, we analyze a weakness of proximal algorithms in sparse matrix factorization: the premature convergence of the support.

There is growing interest in the use of deep neural network
(DNN) based image denoising to reduce patient’s X-ray
dosage in medical computed tomography (CT). An effective
denoiser must remove noise while maintaining the texture
and detail. Commonly used mean squared error (MSE) loss
functions in the DNN training weight errors due to bias and
variance equally. However, the error due to bias is often more
egregious since it results in loss of image texture and detail.
In this paper, we present a novel approach to designing a loss
