Paper Abstract

Historically, the communities of engineers and scientists who image objects under the ground, under the ocean, inside the body, and inside the cell, have had relatively little contact, despite dealing with similar issues and often using similar mathematical models and algorithms. CenSSIS, the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, is an NSF Engineering Research Center, developed to bring these seemingly disparate fields together. Conceived at Northeastern University, the Center now has four university partners, four affiliates, and a growing number of corporate and government sponsors. CenSSIS was established to solve real--world problems in these and other fields, to spark revolutionary advances by developing a unified framework for subsurface sensing and imaging systems, and to immerse students and researchers in a multi--disciplinary teaching and learning environment. Already this effort has begun to bear fruit. Here we report on the first full year of activity as an Engineering Research Center.
