Information Processing & Systems


The Information Processing and Systems team aspire to bridge the gap between academia and industry through its mission of solving complex multi-domain problems in the areas of Information Processing and Extraction, C4ISR (Command Control Communication and Computer Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance), Remote Sensing, and Data Fusion.


The Information Processing & System team brings together over 30 years of collective experience building products and solutions for defense and commercial industries.  This positions them perfectly to partner with federal agencies, defense contractors, national labs, and commercial partners. Using their expertise, their approach is to build partnerships across the UIUC campus and leverage the best-in-class low-TRL (Technology Readiness Levels) research for submitting joint proposals to government funding agencies like DARPA, AFRL, ONR, and other DoD departments which look to solve applied problems. Working on applied problems, translating them into requirements, and delivering field hardened solutions is one of the core competencies of the team.
