    Theme

    Compressive sensing (CS) is a novel acquisition and processing technique that enables reconstruction of sparse signals from a set of non-adaptive measurements sampled at a much lower rate than required by the Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem as pertaining to the full signal bandwidth. In particular, compressive sensing exploits the fact that the information bandwidth of the signal is much smaller than the full signal bandwidth.

    For radar and ESM sensors, the use of CS may lead to several benefits, such as significant hardware reductions in ESM receivers, unambiguous signal recovery from incomplete measurements (filling in missing data) in interleaved radar modes (SAR/GMTI, multi-function radars) and sparse arrays, high resolution imaging with significantly less data and/or hardware.

    The main objective of this Research Lecture Series is to present the fundamentals and the cutting edge of CS techniques for a number of radar and ESM applications, with an outlook to expected future developments and hardware implications of CS based architectures.

    Topics to be covered:

    • Introduction and overview of CS applied to radar.
    • Introduction and application of CS for Electronic Support Measures (ESM).
    • Introduction and application of CS to Inverse SAR.
    • Hardware architectures for compressive sensing.
    • Application of CS to 2D/3D SAR.
    • Applications of convex optimization to GMTI.

    General Information Package: it will be available once your enrollment has been validated and you have received a confirmation by email. This package will be accessible on this meeting announcement when you are logged in. 

    Meals: It is recommended to book your lunches and dinner prior to 14th February 2019.

    Symposium Theme

    It has been more than a decade since NATO HFM examined leader strategies for addressing the health of their personnel (Military Leaders’ Strategies for Addressing Stress and Psychological Support). Since then, casualties of combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq have been the impetus toward a greater focus on health-related interventions. Current and recent HFM activities have examined health-related interventions, such as Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Optimized Nutrition, Suicide Prevention and Leadership Tools for Suicide Prevention to name a few. However, breakthroughs in the domains of leadership, organizational justice, motivation, work engagement, organizational commitment, workplace well-being, and job-related burnout, among others, have influenced models of health to include an increasing number of psychosocial factors. The result is a greater appreciation for a more holistic (or total) view of health and wellness in the workplace that has triggered action in public and private organizations, including the military.

    The objective of this symposium is to bring together leading academics and military experts from a variety of health disciplines to consolidate current evidence-based leader interventions that support military personnel health and wellness from a holistic perspective in order to optimize individual and group functioning in operational and non-operational settings.

    • Total Health and Wellness in a Military Context (scope, e.g., physical, psychological, spiritual, family, etc.)
    • Risk and Protective Factors for Health and Wellness in a Military Context
    • Current Leader Initiatives/Practices to Support Personnel Health and Wellness
    • Evidence-based Leader Interventions and Tools for Health and Wellness at the Individual, Group, and Organizational Levels
    • Gaps in Evidence-based Leader Interventions for Health and Wellness in the Military
    • Barriers to Establishing/Identifying Evidence-based Leader Interventions for Health and Wellness in the Military
    • High Risk Groups: Where Military Leader Interventions for Health and Wellness are Most Necessary

    Tactical missiles can strike and intercept targets on land, in the air and at sea.

    NATO needs to maintain a capability edge over potential adversaries with new and upgraded missile systems.

    Concept definition is the first step towards a new missile system. Mission requirements will determine the size and performance of a system. Both are strongly related to the type and size of the propulsion sub-system.

    Currently, to perform conceptual design, military users, procurement agencies and defense contractors in NATO nations use individual proprietary models and different data bases. This leads to non-consistent results and is hindering collaboration.

    Framework of the Meeting

    The Applied Vehicle Panel (AVT) of the NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) is organizing a Specialists’ Meeting (RSM) on Multi-disciplinary design approaches and performance assessment of future combat aircraft. The meeting is open to NATO Nations and two Enhanced Opportunity Partners: Australia and Sweden. The Specialists’ Meeting is classified as NATO UNCLASSIFIED OPEN TO AUSTRALIA and SWEDEN. The meeting will be held in Quebec City, Canada during the Spring 2020 AVT Panel Business Meeting Week, 27 – 29 April 2020.

    The three day Specialists’ Meeting is planned to have approximately 24 papers, several of which will be invited. In addition, the Specialists’ Meeting is open for poster presentations given during the Panel Business Meeting Week in parallel to the oral paper presentations. It is as well open to static displays as desired. Full Meeting Proceedings will be published on the CSO website: www.cso.nato.int.

     

    General Scope and Meeting Objectives

     The intention of the RSM is to share and expand the knowledge of design and performance prediction capabilities of future agile combat fighter aircraft within the NATO community. The military relevance is given by the necessity to provide a common knowledge to design and assessment of the performance of current and future air vehicles. The related RTG AVT-251 was able to consolidate a certain group of NATO nations and was able to show the capabilities of the current STO research community. To be able to convey this knowledge base into the outside community such as procurement agencies and industry, a common Specialists’ Meeting is a valid format. Furthermore, the STO community needs feedback from outside to address technological gaps for future activities. The main objectives are:

    • Provide a spectrum of design aspects and overall design experiences for future combat NATO military aircraft and provide vital links between disciplines.
    • Demonstrate the performance of existing design methods with respect to applicability and reliability.
    • Identify future and progressive aircraft design requirements and identify the necessary method developments to solve aerodynamic, S&C, structural etc. characteristics challenges.
    • Discuss design strategies using advanced design tools like multi-fidelity methods or reduced order modelling (ROM).


    Specialists’ Meeting Topics

    Papers and posters are invited in the areas of:

    • Conceptual and preliminary design of future combat military aircraft
