Safety and Security
In the safety and security sector the focus is on how ICT can improve the avoidance and management of natural and man-made disasters.
Improved surveillance technologies will help to avoid or predict imminent disasters and improved crisis information systems will achieve more efficient responses to disasters.
NICTA's researchers are creating new tools for effective mitigation, management of, and recovery from natural and man-made disasters.
We are developing better video surveillance technologies, improved crisis information systems, more robust communication systems and better planning and resource scheduling.
Development of techniques for characterisation, diagnosis and assurance of health and quality formations and sensor networks, including wireless networks.
Better techniques and tools for evaluating integration between people, ICT, and environments of use.
Develop efficient tools to answer pattern questions in large data sets related to movement of objects
Develop statistical machine learning tools and algorithms for use in the different stages of the intelligence life-cycle. This implicitly includes data and text mining.
Develop techniques for obtaining a complete timing model of a production quality microkernel
Develop generic, robust, expressive and efficient models and algorithms to interpret and query data under uncertainty in digital forensics and environmental management
Focuses on improving ICT technologies in the emergency and disaster management domains
Develop and implement a precisely specified, secure API for the L4 microkernel
Solving situation awareness problems with logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning techniques
Spectral camera technology and exploration of spectral properties over 3D models and the localisation of spectral energy sources within objects
