    Moral decisions are among the most difficult that soldiers will face, and they exist throughout the full-spectrum of military operations. A single bad decision can erode local, national, international and host nation support thereby derailing the strategic mission and putting troops at risk. Evidence exists linking moral decisions, attitudes and behaviors to military mental health and well-being. This is a crucial component of leaders’ responsibility for their soldiers. Recommendations are made including education and training, after action reviews, counseling, reintegration programs that seek to mitigate the threat to the mission and soldier well-being.

    NATO STO Technology Trends Workshop #1

    Workshop EATON Free event Your booking will be on the waitlist

     

    This workshop aims to bring together a variety of national experts from different nations and different science and technology disciplines to share their views on future technology trends and their impact on military operations and capabilities.

    Specifically with respect to the STO Technology Trends Report production, the objective is to generate a set of militarily relevant technology trend areas with associated narratives that are properly informed by a diverse group of experts and that describe the predicted developments in each trend area, potential militarily relevant applications in each area and potential impact on military operations and capability development in the short ((

    The output from this workshop will form the basis for Workshop #2, where more a detailed assessment of the impact and probability of various applications in the trend areas will be conducted. The output from this workshop will also be made available to nations who may wish to make use of it in support of their own technology trends efforts.

    The workshop will run for two full days and be organized at the NATO STO/CSO facilities in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France.

    A list of pre-reading will be sent out one month prior to the workshop.

    Participation is open to national experts, preferably early-career, who are:

    • Knowledgeable in an area of exciting, ground-breaking science and technology (S&T), technology trends or technology foresight;

    • Able to imagine future applications of technology that could disrupt future warfare. For example by changing the propensity of state actors to go to war, the way warfighters behave during conflict, the way military forces are structured, or the costs associated with capability development and military operations;

    • Aware of predictions regarding potential developments in technology in the short

    • Able to explain themselves to non-experts;

    • Interested to learn about trends in other areas;

    • Thrilled when they get a chance to start a sentence with “in the future…”

     

    The total number of places is limited to 50. An initial allocation of up to two places per nation will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Unfilled places from this allocation will be allocated to participants whose background and expertise adds to the diversity of the group. All participants will receive firm confirmation of their place on or before 27 January 2018.

    Aerospace Medicine - A Century Of Challenging Boundaries

    MILITARY RELEVANCE
    Aircrew performance is a critical determinant of mission effectiveness. Modern technology has led to current air operations becoming increasingly challenging, which require aircrew to be physically, medically and psychologically fit. The development of dynamic fifth generation multi-role aircraft employs a single seat cockpit, which increase the pilot’s psycho-physical workload compared with previous generation aircraft. Costs of training Aircrew are rising, making each individual a significant financial investment, which gives an incentive to maintain Aircrew in flying status for longer, and therefore more likely to suffer from age related or natural disease. In this regard, Aerospace Medicine is becoming more personalized flight medicine focusing on the individual’s capabilities and condition, which define the medical care required. In addition, adequate perception and situational awareness are keys to the effectiveness of the human component of airborne military forces in the man/machine interface. In a network enabled air scenario (ISTAR) aircrew have to cope with multiple psycho-physical stresses. In this context, aircrew now include ground-based operators of Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems, and individuals working in cyberspace.

    SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVE(S) AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
    The objective of this Course is to provide state of the art knowledge and practices, share national practices and evaluate new and emerging technologies on the subject of Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance in its broadest context to NATO Flight Surgeons, by a group of expert lecturers from NATO nations. The course will cover the current and future challenges in Aerospace Medicine at home (selection, training, retention, career fields, aging) and in deployed area (exposure, threat, non-linear warfare) in more demanding and hostile missions, with exponentially growing technology, in a more volatile world.

    Call for Papers: Ramstein Aerospace Medicine Summit and NATO STO Technical Course 2018
  • Mon 19 .

    This is a Call for Abstract/Papers for the SET-SCI-254 Specialists Meeting on "Passive Radar"

    OPENING of The Enrollment: 18 December 2017

    Topics to be covered:

    The objective of the meeting is to identify possible approaches to “Countering the Passive Threat”. It will be entirely focused on countering PCL and PET in both air and maritime domains - but with the aim of exploring as wide a range as possible of potential solutions - and not focused entirely on conventional “jamming” approaches.

    Although RF countermeasures will clearly form a large part of the topics considered, other areas which might be addressed include – but are not limited to:

    • Electronic Protective Measures
    • Estimating possible radar locations
    • Mission planning
    • Emission control or modification
    • Cyber approaches
    • Modelling tools
    • Destruction of broadcast transmitters

    The meeting will of course also consider the threat environment, but only in as much as is necessary to put the other topics in context.

    Deadlines:

    • US Abstract submission : 24 November 2017
    • All Abstracts submission: 08 December 2017
    • Acceptance notification: 15 December 2017
    • US Paper/Form13 submission: 12 February 2018
    • Final paper and Form 13 submission:08 March 2018

    All additional information concerning the abstracts and paperc submission are to find on the right side ( pdf file to download)

    SET-SCI-254 (RSM) Specialists'' Meeting on Counter Passive Radar
  • Tue 8 .
    May

    The primary objectives of this symposium are to:

    1. Enable a broader shared awareness and appreciation of threats to NATO defence systems in cyber contested environments among the military operators, science and technology experts, requirements and operational planners, and the supporting national academic and industrial bases of the Alliance.
    2. Highlight important future materiel and non-materiel developments necessary within the Alliance to ensure NATO’s continued access to and effective leverage of cyber physical systems.
    3. Communicate a common message from among the NATO operational, planning and S&T participants on NATO’s strategic imperatives with respect to the cybersecurity.

    Further information about the specific topics to be found in the Call for Papers.
