Developing Modern Surveillance Systems

The Center for Surveillance Research (CSR) is a National Science Foundation Industry/ University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) whose mission is to develop a principled theory and advanced practice for modern surveillance systems. 

The Center for Surveillance Research (CSR) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC). Its mission is to advance the body‐of‐knowledge for modern surveillance systems. The inherent multidisciplinary nature of surveillance systems means that the Center includes researchers from a broad spectrum of expertise, including, sensor phenomenology, signal and image processing, machine learning, sensor technology (e.g., radar, acoustic, chemical/biological, etc.), and human factors.

There is an increasing need and urgency to train and educate qualified scientists and engineers that can become the next generation of thought leaders in the surveillance system field. Surveillance theory is a broad, multidisciplinary topic that integrates ideas and techniques across several disciplines. ​If this is a domain in which you are interested, please consider joining our collaborative effort of industry and university partners.
