At SPIE Defense, Security+Sensing (DSS) 2015, more than 6,000 attendees—including scientists, researchers, engineers, and company representatives—will gather to discuss the latest inoptics, lasers, sensors, infrared imaging, and optoelectronics for defense and security, as well as industrial applications.

Held April 21-23 in Baltimore, MD, USA, SPIE DSS 2015 consists of a show floor exhibition, along with 35informative courses. The show is divided into two technical symposia, which combined will have a total of 55 conferences with more than 2,000 technical presentations, covering a number of topics:

  • Sensing Technology + Applications (New as of 2014): Hyperspectral imaging, fiber optic sensors, spectroscopy, 3D imaging and visualization, wireless sensing, advanced photon counting techniques, biomedical/physiological wearable sensors, thermosense, energy harvesting, robotics sensors, along with sensing technologies in chemical, environmental, biological, harsh environment, wireless, and agriculture and food safety
  • Defense + Security: Infrared sensors and imaging systems, lasers and systems, mine/chemical detection, cyber sensing/security, biometrics and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, UAVs, aerospace, sensor data and information exploitation, imagery and pattern analysis, pattern and target recognition, along with sensors for command/control/communications/intelligence, radar, and next-generation systems.

In addition, a new track on fiber optic sensors will highlight papers from both areas, supported by a one-day course on fiber opticsensor design and technology, along with several presentations. While fiber optic sensors were first developed for aerospace and defense applications—including rotation measurement and underwater acoustic sensing—the track will also cover diverse developing areas such as robotics and dangerous or life-threatening locations, according to SPIE.

New and featured courses at the show include:

  • Fundamentals of fiber optic sensor design and technology
  • Dimensionality reduction for hyperspectral image analysis
  • Laser systems engineering
  • Applications and performance of high power lasers in the battlefield
  • Radiometry and its practical applications
  • Statistics for imaging and sensor data

Attendees of the show can expect to the following featured technologies:robotics, UAVs, chemical and biological sensing, infrared detectors and systems, cameras and CCD components, displays, optical components, high-speed imaging and sensing, and law enforcement technologies.
