Biography

Dr. David L. Hall is the Dean in the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) and a Professor in Information Sciences and Technology (IST) where he leads the Center for Network Centric Cognition and Information Fusion.   Previously he was the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs in Penn State's College of Information Sciences and Technology, where he was responsible for overseeing IST's Ph.D. and Master's Degree programs as well as research grant administration and leadership of IST faculty research efforts.

Hall joined IST from the University's Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) where he served as associate director and senior scientist. At ARL, he oversaw the 150-person Information and Network Systems Office, comprised of four divisions: Information Science and Technology, Navigation Research and Development, Systems and Operations Automation, and Communications Science and Technology.

He has more than 25 years of experience in research, research management, and systems development. He is the author of more than 200 papers, reports, books and book chapters, and he has delivered numerous lectures on his research, research management, and artificial intelligence. Hall has been named as an IEEE fellow for his contributions to data fusion and he was awarded the DoD Joe Mignona National Data Fusion award for his contributions and leadership in data fusion.

Research and Teaching

Hall's research has covered a wide variety of areas, including stellar structures, celestial mechanics, digital signal processing, software engineering, and automated reasoning. Multisensor data fusion is a particular focus for Hall and his work in this area is recognized both nationally and internationally. Hall has conducted and led research projects for such sponsors as NASA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Naval Research Lab, Office of Naval Research, U.S. Air Force Rome Air Development Center, the Department of Defense, and private aerospace corporations. Courses taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level include advanced physics, modern physics, astronomy, celestial mechanics, artificial intelligence and knowledge-based systems, information systems and project management, and information fusion.

The emerging technology of mutisensor data fusion has a wide range of applications, both in Department of Defense (DoD) areas and in the civilian arena. The techniques of multisensor data fusion draw from an equally broad range of disciplines, including artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, and statistical estimation. With the rapid evolution of computers and the maturation of data fusion technology, the door to using data fusion in everyday applications is now wide open and presenting great opportunities.
The Handbook of Multisensor Data Fusion provides a unique, comprehensive, and up-to-date resource for data fusion systems designers and researchers. Divided into five parts, its outstanding features include the following:
- A thorough introductin to data fusion terminology and models
- Advanced techniques for data association, target tracking, and identification
- Practical information on system develoment, including requirements analysis, systems engineering, algorithm selection, database design, human-computer interfaces, and performance assessment
- Applications from the DoD, NASA, DARPA, and condition-based monitoring of complex machinery
- Data fusion resources and Web sites
The contributing authors are all recognized leaders in data fusion and have collaborated to provide what promises to be the definitive reference for this rapidly developing field.
