The CTFG is an independent and informal group dedicated to advancing the knowledge, theory and applications of tracking and information fusion activities in Canada. Through our web site, Google Group, workshops and other activities, it is our vision to encourage the exchange of information and the spawning of collaborations on problems of common interests, incorporating diversified applications, including those for land, air, space, maritime and underwater.

  1. Share
    To share real-world tracking and fusion data, challenge problems, and solutions;
  2. Discuss
    To discuss current and future topics of interest in various application areas;
  3. Understand
    To understand the needs of government and industry and provide a forum for discussion with academic groups;
  4. Liaison
    To be a liaison to industry, academia, and government by establishing working panels and providing benchmark problems to evaluate new and existing solutions;
  5. Foster
    To foster technology transfer among the CTFG members and their member organizations.
