The objective of this Lecture Series is to present the latest developments in cognitive radar sensing and thereby increase the awareness of the value of these concepts to the NATO scientific and engineering communities. Lectures will be given by leading experts in the area who will present the underpinning ideas and explore their relative merits. The Lecture Series will review current and emerging developments in cognitive radar sensing. Discourses will be based around fundamental concepts and advanced applications using a wide variety of examples relevant to NATO’s mission.

IST-143 - LS on Cyber Security Science & Engineering in Talence - FRA

Lecture Series Lecture Series Office
Booked: 155 | Free Seats: 45

The ubiquitous application and pervasive use of Information Communications Technologies (ICT) and emerging web sciences is being driven by the so far insatiable commercial demand for global computing, telecommunications and multi-media services. These developments have had a profound impact on both the commercial and military sectors to the point where the majority – if not all – critical functions, networks and systems depend on ICT. Military staffs rely on these infrastructures as well as specialised critical infrastructures and CIS (Communication and Information Systems) to support operations and deliver network enabled capabilities (NEC). The common point, and weakness, is the functional space that such ICT-based infrastructure and systems operate in. Any vulnerability in this cyber space – regardless of its size – can be exposed and exploited.

There is a worldwide lack of talent with respect to cyber security. This has become an issue facing national governments, and raises the question of how to reduce the shortage of cyber security experts and personnel.

Several NATO member states have issued national cyber security strategies identifying the need to spot and develop cyber defence talent and to boost cyber security education. However, current practice of engineering cyber systems as well as techniques and tools for cyber operations are extremely ad hoc and not guided by a coherent body of knowledge comparable to older fields of engineering.

The main objective of the proposed lecture series is to disseminate knowledge on Cyber Security Science, Cyber Security Architecture and Cyber Security Engineering among researchers and systems engineers in NATO’s member states. There are clear indications that such a series of lectures is timely and will be highly welcomed.

SET 247 (RSM) - Specialists' Meeting on Remote Intelligence of Building Interiors

The ability to discern activity, occupancy, structure and/or intent within a building is a major disruptive capability in ISR, with a number of consequent intelligence benefits at strategic and operational levels. NATO adversaries are now commonly aware of being observed from ISR assets and in some countries intelligence is only gained from conventional imaging sensors when permitted by a foreign state-actor. As a result the NATO intelligence community has seen a significant reduction in open-sky nefarious activities with many previous key observables (e.g.Terrorist training camps, opiate manufacturing and Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) testing) now taking place inside buildings or underground facilities. Capabilities are therefore required to facilitate surveillance and intelligence gathering of building interiors in order to understand internal structure, occupancy, the nature of activities and/or intent. This also needs to be (i) Covert; and (ii) From a distance. Such technological capabilities would contribute significantly to solving a number of intelligence problems such as :

  • Detecting illegal or nefarious manufacturing activities
  • Detecting illegal or nefarious storage of materials, weapons and equipment
  • Detecting people being held against their will
  • Supporting disaster relief.
