Geospatial Intelligence Lab

Research Centers

Center for Geospatial Intelligence (CGI)

The Center for Geospatial Intelligence is led by Curt Davis, Naka Endowed Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Since it’s inception in 2007, Davis and a large and diverse group of faculty and other researchers have conducted R&D for defense and intelligence agencies and related industries.

Fully 21 affiliated faculty from electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, geography, civil and environmental engineering and geological sciences have worked on equally diverse projects including satellite, airborne, and ground-based remote sensing; advanced geospatial data processing and production; automated feature extraction; target recognition; video processing and surveillance; pattern recognition; intelligent databases; information retrieval; human terrain modeling; change detection and the detection and characterization of underground structures.

The depth and breath of CGI’s personnel and it’s funded research have made it the leading academic research center in this country focused on critical geospatial intelligence for national security and military combat support. To date, the center’s awarded proposals total more than $30 million over the past 15 years.
