University at Buffalo - The State University of New York
Skip to Content

The Center for Multisource Information Fusion (CMIF) is a research partnership between the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York, and CUBRC, a non-profit research center in Western New York. 

Created through an Air Force-sponsored contract to CUBRC in 1996, our research focus is on multiple-source information processing environments, such as in multiple-sensor or multiple-instrumented systems. Such environments occur frequently in defense applications for advanced surveillance and reconnaissance systems but also in robotics, civil infrastructure systems, medical monitoring systems, intrusion detection systems, intelligent transportation systems, and in environmental monitoring applications.

What is Multisource Information Fusion?

Multisource information fusion is a sophisticated estimation process that combines data received from multiple sources to produce specific and comprehensive estimates about an entity, activity or event.

Research Projects and Resources

Most universities aren't equipped to work in the contract world. But here at CMIF, our partnership with UB and CUBRC allows us to do basic contracted research and directly apply our findings to real deliverables.
