Dr. Stefano Coraluppi works in multi-target tracking and multi-sensor data fusion, with applications that include ground, air, undersea and maritime surveillance. He has been with STR since 2014, where he is a Chief Scientist leading projects in multi-sensor surveillance in both real-time and forensic settings. Prior to joining STR, he was on the research staff at ALPHATECH Inc. (1997-2002), the NATO Undersea Research Centre (2002-2010), and Compunetix Inc. (2010-2014). At ALPHATECH, he led the development of advanced multi-sensor ground surveillance capabilities under the DARPA Dynamic Database (DDB) program. At NATO, he led the development of multi-sensor undersea and maritime surveillance and anomaly detection capabilities, with active participation in numerous international sea trials with civilian and military assets. At Compunetix, he led research in robust collaborative data fusion and in biological particle tracking.
Dr. Coraluppi received the BS degree in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics with University Honors from Carnegie Mellon University in 1990, and MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1992 and 1997, respectively. His doctoral research was in stochastic control. He is Member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, Member of the Board of Directors and Secretary of the International Society of Information Fusion, Technical Editor for Target Tracking and Multisensor Systems (and Associate Editor-in-Chief) for the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, Area Editor for Tracking (and Associate Editor-in-Chief) for the ISIF Journal of Advances in Information Fusion, and a Senior Member of IEEE. He lectures regularly for the NATO Science and Technology Organization.
