The principal objectives of the Computing Sciences program are to provide increased performance and capability for processing signals and data; extract critical information and actionable intelligence to enhance the warfighters' situational awareness; decision making; command and control; and weapons systems performance. This program identifies and addresses the Army's critical basic research problems in Computing Sciences where progress has been inhibited by a lack of novel concepts or fundamental knowledge. Computing Sciences is pervasive in nearly all Army systems especially Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. Research in this program has application to a wide variety of developmental efforts and contributes to the solution of technology-related problems throughout the Army's Future Force operational goals.

The Computing Sciences program supports the following research areas:

Division Chief

Dr. Cliff Wang
(919) 549-4207

Computational Architectures and Visualization

Dr. Joseph (Michael) Coyle
(919) 549-4256

Computational Architectures and Visualization is concerned with modeling, analysis, and design of both hardware and software architectures with special emphasis on the effect that the technological shift to heterogeneous, multi-core processors will have on these architectures. This subarea also involves innovative research in all aspects of visualization to include everything from computational geometry and computer graphics to large-scale computer simulations and virtual environments.

Information and Software Assurance

Dr. Cliff Wang
(919) 549-4207

Information and Software Assurance addresses the research and development of highly assured, self-healing and survivable software and information systems that address the processing and delivery of authentic, accurate, secure, reliable, and timely information, regardless of threat conditions.

Information Processing and Fusion

Dr. Liyi Dai
(919) 549-4350

Information Processing and Fusion is focused on addressing research needs in converting sensor data into useful information to support effective decision-making. Topics supported under this program include image understanding, robotic perception, collaborative sensing by multimodality sensors, analysis and exploitation of high dimensional multimodality datasets, and brain-computer interfaces.
