    The last 25 years brought a significant evolution of the nature of warfare that was conceptualized by the 4th generation and hybrid warfare ideas. The war-fighters are now facing a broad spectrum of conflicts ranging from quasi law enforcement operations to large-scale war against small groups of individuals to major state armies. This resulted in an evolution in the needs for sensing for all engagement aspects. For instance, cheaper, smaller and more power-efficient sensors are required to equip various platforms or dismounted soldiers. As computer, communication and autonomous system technologies became ubiquitous, distributed networks and smart sensors are becoming a reality. Similarly, these technologies are enablers for evolutions (i.e. MIMO, noise radars, digital NVS, etc.) of classical sensors which result in a very dynamic technological environment. This ninth NATO Military Sensing Symposium will explored this ongoing evolution of the nature of warfare and the resulting shift in emphasis required by military sensing.
    This NATO Military Sensing Symposium (MSS) will be the ninth in a series of international meetings focusing on military sensing. The last edition was convened in May 2011 (SET-169). Presentations are invited that will identify new sensors, systems and techniques as well as the usage of these improvements and their potential benefits to military operations in the areas of electro-optics/infrared, radar, seismic and acoustic. These technologies are continuously evolving, particularly in the radar and infrared (IR) spectral regions. New materials are being investigated and the spectral range of sensors are been extended to address the challenges of detection and identification in adversarial environments. In addition, novel data fusion approaches and techniques, integration of multiple sensors, development of algorithms and signal processing are being used to increase sensor performance and improve situation awareness and interoperability.
    The three-day symposium will provide excellent opportunities to discuss these challenges and possible solutions with NATO military and technical experts. The Symposium is open to NATO nations and bodies, including Australia, Finland and Sweden and is free of charge for presenters and participants.

    The SET-241 Symposium is classified up to and including NATO RESTRICTED. Symposium is open to Australia, Finland and Sweden
    Papers and presentations are to be submitted/ presented in English

    SET-241 (RSY) - 9th NATO Military Sensing Symposium
  • Mon 12 .

    The armed forces of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and the Partnership for Peace (PfP) countries possess and use large quantities of munitions. The production, use and disposal of these munitions makes a contribution to the overall environmental impact. Handling of munitions with energetic materials requires great care and considerable cost. The environmental impact of the processes must be acceptable to an increasingly critical general population to avoid anti-military backlash or overpass any environmental law. Clean up and restoring areas where military activities has polluted the ground or water requires significant funding. Past practices such as dumping at sea or into land-fill sites are no longer generally acceptable.

    There is a need to know and minimise the environmental impact from munitions so we can handle and manage our land properly. Governments have a duty of care to the members of their armed forces and all reasonable precautions must be exercised to ensure safe use of munitions, including managing contamination and risk appreciation and management. This will ensure a more coherent approach; it will support the work of NATO CASG in developing processes for implementing environmental policies and will develop the technological base for future munitions in all NATO and NATO related countries.

    The lecture series is intended to introduce scientists, technologists and users to the understanding of environmental issues and of the ways to manage potential risks. It is aimed at providing a basic understanding of the science and its application for reducing environmental risks in the design, use and disposal of munitions. Those attending will be able to understand the rationale for the NATO policy and be introduced to ways in which the solutions can be applied or specified.

    AVT-276-RLS- Environmental Aspects of Munitions and Greener Approaches to Design  in  Rijswijk, NLD
  • Tue 18 .
    Jul

    This is a cross-Panel activity NMSG and IST. The co-chairs hope that running IST-156 and MSG-151 together will provide fruitful common areas between the simulation & training and information systems communities as well as the opportunity to address specific requirements of each community.

    The workshop will bring together military and civilian researchers, technologists, practitioners and stakeholders interested in modelling and simulation. This will provide an excellent opportunity to increase participants’ insight into the civil as well as the military cyber defence and security problem space, and to influence future research in modelling and simulation for cyber defence.

    The objectives of MSG-151 are:

    • to link results and proposed solutions to ongoing defence and security research
    • to motivate future research within NATO STO
    • provide collective insight into the art of the possible regarding the application of M&S techniques to the cyber domain
    • a list of specific technical challenges that need to be addressed to maximise the benefit of M&S for cyber-related training and mission rehearsal
    • insight on how the M&S and the cyber domain may evolve in the future, and the opportunities and threats this poses

    Topics of interest for the MSG stream include but are not limited to:

    • Representing high-level effects of cyber warfare (such as disrupted logistics, erroneous navigation and effects of information operations) for campaign- and mission-level exercises
    • Requirements for training cyber awareness for personnel who are not cyber practitioners
    • Possible extension of NATO design documents to accommodate cyber defence
    • How existing NATO IRC outputs and SISO standards can augment cyber defence training

    If you wish to present a paper, PLEASE SUBMIT BEFORE 15 MAY 2017
    PLEASE ENROLL BEFORE 15 JUNE 2017

    The Workshop is NATO UNCLASSIFIED
    OPEN to NATO nations, and EOP nations: Finland, Sweden and Australia
