    The NATO Science and Technology Board (STB) highlights the requirement for decision making by exploiting Big Data and use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) means in NATO. This Specialists’ Meeting will provide attendees a forum to discuss state-of-the-art technologies, developments, concepts and operational requirements with regard to emerging technologies. The combination of specialists from various technical and non-technical domains in NATO allows a universal and unbiased discussion.

    In order to avoid an abstract scientific discussion, the national STB representatives will engage operational experts to participate and work with the scientists towards a common road map for future research activities in NATO that meet operational needs.

    Within the OODA loop the first step 'Observe' is about harvesting data. Intelligent integration of heterogeneous devices, architectures of acquisition systems and sensors, decentralized management of data, and autonomous collection platforms and sensors give a huge field for improvement with Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence technologies for acquiring and processing Big Data. The next step 'Orient' is about reasoning.  Analysis of social media, information fusion, anomaly detection, and behavior modeling are domains with huge potential for Machine Learning algorithms. The same is applicable for the 'Decide' step where predictive analytics, augmented and virtual reality and many more technologies support the operational decision-making process. A complex battlefield and high speed operations require independently acting devices to 'Act' with a certain degree of Autonomy. In all steps, the application of AI technologies for automated analysis, early warnings, guaranteeing trust in the Internet of Things (IoT), and distinguishing relevant from Fake Data is mandatory.

    Below is a (not exhaustive) list of relevant topics to be tackled during the event. The names of the Panels given in brackets are not exclusive and are just a snapshot for current activities.

    Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), also known as concussion, is a significant military operational and civilian medical problem. This lecture series will review state of medical knowledge and discuss medical treatment in the deployed as well as post-deployment settings. Participants will leave with increased ability to accurately diagnose mTBI/concussion and to treat patients appropriately.

    The rapid expansion of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) is building on the existing infrastructure of aviation, air vehicle design, instrumentation, air space integration and an ever-expanding range of applications.  UAS allow low cost and limited risk solutions for providing a variety of data sources supporting science, law enforcement and military functions including exploring hostile environments without risk to the human life.  The maturation of UAS necessitates a significant reformulation of the national air traffic control system, air traffic control training, pilot training, air space operations, sensor packages, data collection methods, and data processing centers.  For all these reasons, the creation and availability of quality UAS related courses and training is vital for the continued growth and safety of UAS operations to promote and enhance NATO defense priorities.

    The objectives of the Lecture Series are: i) to provide an overview on the design of Unmanned Air Systems including multidisciplinary aspects such as aerodynamics, propulsion, composite airframes, instrumentation and flight control systems; (ii) to assess the technological challenges and regulatory issues related to the integration and operation into existing air space; and (iii) to understand the human-system interface for operation of UAS.
