21st International Conference on Information Fusion - 10 - 13 July 2018

Studying at Cambridge






At Systems & Technology Research, we harness the power of technology to solve challenging U.S. national security problems. The U.S. military and intelligence services employ advanced technologies at all echelons, from central commands to battlefields, to create strategic and tactical advantage. Our mission is to provide this advantage through the development and delivery of innovative sensors and information processing capabilities.

We are motivated by a commitment to excellence in everything we conceive, design, develop and build; and we believe that by working collaboratively – among ourselves, our clients and partner companies – we can deliver powerful capabilities to our customers.

STR is a privately-owned, growing business focused on research and development for the defense and intelligence communities. STR has over 200 employees at sites in Woburn, MA; Dayton, OH; and Arlington, VA. Several programs have transitioned advanced technology to military and intelligence users.  We partner with dozens of businesses, large and small, as well as academic institutions and professors.  We recruit and hire at all levels: interns, co-op students, recent college graduates at all levels, mid-career and seasoned professionals.

STR specializes in advanced research and development for defense, intelligence and homeland security applications. While our primary focus is on serving US Government customers, we are pursuing commercial applications as well. We are a nationally recognized leader in research areas including:


  • Sensor Development
  • Sensor Signal Processing
  • Electronic Warfare
  • Computer Vision
  • Social Media Processing
  • Cyber Defense
  • Data Analytics
  • Command and Control

Thank you for a great Fusion Conference!!

Jul 15, 2018

We would like to thank everyone involved in the conference this year, and wish next year's conference in Ottawa all success! The conference is made by the quality of our technical programme, and this was excellent as in past years... We had record registrations (~500 people) and a very vibrant set of technical talks and presentations, expanding our notions of Data Fusion in exciting directions. Well done to all our paper award winners and runners up - this was a really tough competition and many papers were award-worthy. In future we would like to see recognition of more of our very best submissions through an honours list or similar. Thank you also to the plenary speakers - your efforts were particularly commented upon by many. Fusion's horizons were expanded with talks on Machine Learning (Gaussian Processes), Image fusion, and by a timely survey of the particle filtering method, from its statistical origins to the present day, presented in the Bootstrap filter's 25th anniversary year - thank you so much Carl, Jean-Yves, Adrian, David and Neil! The local organising team of Jo, Ella, Lisa et al. at IfM deserve special commendation. Their forebearance, patience and general good humour, not to mentiom highly professional organisation skills, were a true enabler of the conference. Thank you!! Finally, thanks to all of the conference committee, including TPC, special session chairs, tutorial chair and co-chairs for a real collaborative effort that made the Chairs' role a pleasure rather than a burden. All best wishes to you all and Fusion's future ventures. The Conference Chairs - Simon, Mila and Simon
