SAS-137 Research Symposium: Integration of Women into Ground Combat Units


The NATO STO's Systems Analysis and Studies (SAS) Panel conducts studies, analysis and information exchange activities that explore how operational capability can be provided and enhanced through the exploitation of new technologies, new forms of organization or new concepts of operation

In support of new initiatives, as well efforts to increase the representation of women in close ground combat units through enhanced selection, training, and retention strategies, this Research Symposium on Integration of Women into Ground Combat Units will provide opportunity to share lessons learned, best practices, and research analysis. It will provide insights to support the expansion of combat roles for women and to better understand the impact of gender integration on ground combat units.

Please note that this symposium is open to NATO Nations/Organizations, NATO STO Enhanced Opportunity Partners (Australia, Finland, Sweden) Partnership for Peace Nations, Argentina, India, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore.

The Programme Committee was able to build a mature programme with a focus on new and innovative ideas about threats and responses. Among the speakers are representatives from United States Marine Corps, Women In International Security, Canadian Ministry of Defence, Norwegian Defence Research Establishment, United Kingdom Defence Science and Technology Laboratory,  Ministry of Foreign Affairs Japan and German Ministry of Defense.

The General Information Package is available (password protected) at this meeting announcement after your registration is validated. This package contains all information to make travel arrangements and benefit from negotiated hotel rates. The limited number of blocked rooms will be released on 5 January 2019.

The Conference Booklet will be published at the same location (password protected) 1 week prior to the conference and only accessible to participants in the conference.

SET-257 on Compressive Sensing Techniques for Radar and ESM Applications - Athens (GRC)

Lecture Series Lecture Series Office
Booked: 4 | Free Seats: 46


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.
