SIGNetS: signal and information gathering for networked surveillance

Universities of Cambridge, Surrey and Sheffield will partner to address fundamental challenges in distributed sensing, multimodal data fusion and autonomous sensor management that the defence sector is facing, thanks to a $1.2M grant awarded by US Army and UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). The project titled, “SIGNetS: signal and information gathering for networked surveillance”, is funded under the scheme “Signal and Information Processing for Decentralized Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance”, a recent call from the US Army and UK MoD, aiming to address fundamental challenges associated with information processing and fusion in decentralized network of sensors in “Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance “ (ISR).
