About the Lab-STICC

 Created since 2008, the Lab-STICC is a multidisciplinary research laboratory in the field of Information and communication science and technology. Researchers work in a single structure within one central theme: “from sensor to knowledge”.

 The Lab-STICC is a research unit of the French national center for scientific research (CNRS) involving two universities (Université de Bretagne Occidentale, Brest; Université de Bretagne Sud, Lorient) and three graduate schools of engineering (IMT Atlantique, ENSTA Bretagne and ENIB). Under the title UMR 6285, it is attached to department INS2I and INSIS of the CNRS.

 The Lab-STICC incorporates more than 566 people including 317 permanent staff, 206 PhD students and 43 non-permanent positions. The staffs are located over the different institutes on several geographical sites in Brittany: Brest, Lorient, Rennes, Quimper and Vannes.

 Over the last five years, Lab-STICC members have authored more than 700 refereed journal papers, 1800 conference communications and 40 patents. Our research leadership has involved strong academic and industrial collaborations with national and international research grants amounting to more than 30 M€.

 Lab-STICC members play an important role in the academic training (master, engineering degree) in the field of ICT in western Brittany. Several partner institutions are in charge of these courses.

Old organization

The lab-STICC is a research center on communication systems studied from the hardware point of view as well as from the software point of view. The integration of these two aspects has opened a new path for research. The strength and success of the laboratory is based on the high level of collaborations between experts of different domains and the development of original research axes.

 The Lab-STICC is organized around:

 3 scientific poles (for a total of 11 research teams):

  • Microwaves, Optoelectronics and Materials (MOM)
  • Communications, Architectures, Circuits and Systems (CACS)
  • Knowledge, Information, Decision (CID)

 All research is essentially focused on:

  1. Ocean and Information Technology
  2. Cyber security
  3. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
  4. Human Ambient Assisted Living
  5. Neural Machines & information Theory


 The Lab-STICC consists also in:

 6 joints laboratories:

  • ATOL (Thales Aerospace System - )
  • CALIPSO (Thales Aerospace System -Embedded system for electronic warfare)
  • CLAPOT (Thales Underwater Systems – submarine drone)
  • LATERAL (TOSA ,Thales Optronics SA – electronic for missile)
  • SPARTE (iXBLUE, acoustic imaging and positioning)
  • WHIST (Orange, communicating man and to the interactions between waves and people)

 1 industrial chair:
