The VAST lab, directed by Dr. T. Boult, is actively pursuing research in both vision and security. In 2003, the VAST lab moved from Lehigh University to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

Particular areas of research depend on both funding and students’ interests. We currently have funding (either direct or with company partners) from ONR, Rome Labs (Air Force), US Army Research Labs, Missle Defense Agency, US Department of Education, and NISSSC, with multiple pending proposals. We are working with local industry in Colorado Springs, and work sith/support many of the teams in the UCCS Bachelor of Innovation program.

Current research projects at the VAST lab are in the field of biometrics, video surveillance systems, biometric fusion, supporting trauma treatment, steganalysis, network security, and detection of chemical and biological weapons .
