Welcome - Center for Multi-INT Studies
What is CMIS?
The Center for MultiINT Studies (CMIS) is an interdisciplinary research center in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. CMIS faculty and staff have a rich and diverse educational background that include but not limited to electrical and computer engineering, physics, mathematics, operational research, computer science, mechanical engineering, and oceanography. CMIS also works in collaboration with US government, DoD and DoE agencies, as well as academic institutions to solve to solve mission critical problems that face the Navy, DoD, and intelligence communities.
CMIS seeks to understand how integrating intelligence across the intelligence cycle can vastly improve tactical and strategic decision making. This is achieved by using processes, algorithms, and systems to extract knowledge and insights from data that ranges from being abundant to being sparse and unstructured. The mission of CMIS is to produce high value multi-intelligence research outcomes and engage with industry, academic institutions, and other government agencies to understand the state of the art and enable them to pursue the appropriate advanced research and apply the most effective technologies to solve their most difficult problems.
- Conduct cutting-edge research and produce valuable research outcomes
- Develop & disseminate high-quality academic products that advance the Multi-INT profession
- Develop & enable a strong Multi-INT community
- Create an "intellectual multiplier effect" to maximize federal investment - share program content, research results, and educational resources across the community
