GENERAL INFO, PRICES, AND OUTLINE FOR:

OVERVIEW OF DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING

GENERAL INFORMATION:

This overview course is intended principally as an introduction or review of digital signal processing technology and methods for engineers, scientists, managers, and others involved in  software/hardware design and implementation, systems specification, systems design and development,  realtime or offline analysis, field operations, advanced concepts, and research & development.   Students are not required to have prior knowledge of digital signal processing to gain value from this course.   However, technical matters, including such things as the digital sampling theorem, Fourier transforms, and additional fundamental concepts, methods, and techniques are discussed as part of the course.  The course is useful for technical personnel who are making a transition to digital signal processing from other technical fields, such as analog signal processing.  Specific contents of this course can be adapted to the needs of students, particularly where it is given at customer facilities.

OVERVIEW OF DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING  was originally abstracted from our ELINT/EW APPLICATIONS OF DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING  course, but is applicable to Digital Signal Processing in general..  It is updated on a regular basis and also as necessary to maintain its state-of-the-art content and value.

This OVERVIEW DSP course is available currently as a two day presentation, but can also be provided in the form of a one day introduction, with adaptation to specific customer's needs.   However, GMF recommends the 2 day course as the better value.

OVERVIEW DSP is presented by Dr. John F. Green and other technical staff employees of GMF.   All presenters have extensive practical experience in applied digital signal processing.

At present, this course can be arranged to be presented by GMF in your own facility.  Scheduled presentations will be announced here.

Provided below is an outline of the OVERVIEW DSP   course presentation.  The 5 day version of this course covers some sections in greater detail, the degree to which can be adapted to accommodate customer needs.

COURSE PRICES:

Price for the 2 Day course, held at your US facility, is $999 per student, with  discounts for 15 or more students attending.  A minimum of 12 students is required to schedule this course at your US facility.

Price for the 1 Day course, held at your US facility, is $799 per student, with  discounts for 15 or more students attending.  A minimum of 12 students is required to schedule this course at your US facility.

Price quotes for the 2 Day  course, with presentation at your facility outside the US, may be obtained from GMF by submitting your requirements via fax.

Please contact us by email (dsp_ov@gmf.com) or fax (530 504-7884) if you have further interest in this course being presented at your facility, or any questions concerning it.

The 2 Day course is also presented for general enrollment from time to time in the Washington, DC area.  Schedules and prices are provided here for those presentations.
