The following new conferences have been added to the program for 2006:
Nonintrusive Inspection Technologies
Enabling Technologies and Design of Nonlethal Weapons
Sensors for Propulsion Measurement Application
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and Nanotechnologies for Space Applications
Intelligent Integrated MicrosystemsModeling and Simulation for Military Applications
Mobile Multimedia/Image Processing for Military and Security Applications
"DSS eliminates barriers for engineers and scientists who are developing and utilizing electro-optical, digital and microwave technologies for sensor-related defense and security applications," SPIE said. "Open discussions of commercial applications for these technologies help keep members of the scientific and technical community at the cutting edge of their professions."
DSS includes comprehensive presentations on research and development, and diverse conference topics from fundamental science to applications.
The 2006 DSS symposium, technical conferences, education sessions and exhibition provide a unique opportunity to discuss, debate and shape the future of this field.
