    HFM-273 Multinational Exercise: Long Term Scientific Study on Chemical, Biological and Radiological Defence

    Tuesday, 28 January 2020 to Thursday, 30 January 2020

    UPDATE 18 December 2019

     The deadline for comments has been extended until 13 January 2020

    This site has re-opened for enrollment until  7 January 2020.

    The restriction on the number of participants has been relaxed

    The draft report is available

    NATO has since 1961 regularly conducted science and technology (S&T) studies in order to develop its chemical and biological defence capabilities. Relative to the previous study (AC/323(SAS-024)TP/30, May 2006), major geopolitical and security changes as well as significant technological advances have taken place. Several S&T areas continue to see rapid development that will influence the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threat, and consequently requirements for CBRN defence. The present LTSS study has a combined focus on chemical, biological and also radiological (CBR) aspects of CBRN defence. The aim is to identify existing and emerging CBR threat environments and understand how advances in S&T can be used to address these challenges and strengthen CBR defence. The LTSS will inform decision makers and focus capability developers and scientists in using S&T resources to obtain best overall defence effect. The draft study report is now available to NATO and other nations invited to HFM-273 (AUS, FIN, SWE) by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Comments to the LTSS draft report are encouraged from all interested parties by 13 December 2019, irrespective of whether they are able to attend the MNE or not.

    The MNE is the culmination of the LTSS work and will be organized as a workshop where the LTSS results will be presented, discussed and validated through peer review by CBR defence experts and decision and policy makers. Feedback sessions on the draft LTSS report will be held in order to review comments and propose revisions. CBR vignettes will be used to showcase the impact of the LTSS on NATO’s CBRN defence capabilities. Comments to the draft study report need to be forwarded to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 13 December 2019. The LTSS report will be finalized after the MNE, incorporating proposed revisions and lessons from the MNE.

    The invitation to participate at the MNE is extended to individuals from NATO nations, NATO commands and organisations and other nations invited to HFM-273 (AUS, FIN, SWE). Participation of qualified experts is encouraged in order to ensure that the study reflects the consensus input of the broader NATO CBR defence community.  Discussions will be held up to classification NATO CONFIDENTIAL Releasable to Australia, Finland and Sweden. Participants must have a valid up-to-date Personal Security Clearance (PSC) at the NATO Confidential level or above. The number of participants will, due to available seats, be limited and, if necessary, priority will be given to experts providing written feedback on the draft report. Enrolment needs to be completed via the STO Events website no later than 13 December 2019. Acceptance of enrolment will be forwarded within a week after that date. Updated agenda and other information pertaining to the meeting will be provided through the STO event website in the enrolment period.

    The Applied Vehicle Panel (AVT) of the NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) is organizing a Specialists’ Meeting (RSM) on Multi-disciplinary design approaches and performance assessment of future combat aircraft. The meeting is open to NATO Nations and two Enhanced Opportunity Partners: Australia and Sweden. The Specialists’ Meeting is classified as NATO UNCLASSIFIED OPEN TO AUSTRALIA and SWEDEN. The meeting will be held in Quebec City, Canada during the Spring 2020 AVT Panel Business Meeting Week, 27 – 28 April 2020.

    The three day RSM is planned to have approximately 24 papers, several of which will be invited. In addition, the Specialists’ Meeting is open for poster presentations given during the Panel Business Meeting Week in parallel to the oral paper presentations. It is as well open to static displays as desired. Full Meeting Proceedings will be published on the CSO website: www.cso.nato.int.

     

    General Scope and Meeting Objectives

    The intention of the RSM is to share and expand the knowledge of design and performance prediction capabilities of future agile combat fighter aircraft within the NATO community. The military relevance is given by the necessity to provide a common knowledge to design and assessment of the performance of current and future air vehicles. The related RTG AVT-251 was able to consolidate a certain group of NATO nations and was able to show the capabilities of the current STO research community. To be able to convey this knowledge base into the outside community such as procurement agencies and industry, a common Specialists’ Meeting is a valid format. Furthermore, the STO community needs feedback from outside to address technological gaps for future activities. The main objectives are:

    • Provide a spectrum of design aspects and overall design experiences for future combat NATO military aircraft and provide vital links between disciplines.
    • Demonstrate the performance of existing design methods with respect to applicability and reliability.
    • Identify future and progressive aircraft design requirements and identify the necessary method developments to solve aerodynamic, S&C, structural etc. characteristics challenges.
    • Discuss design strategies using advanced design tools like multi-fidelity methods or reduced order modelling (ROM).


    Specialists’ Meeting Topics

    The RSM will cover the following areas:

    • Conceptual and preliminary design of future combat military aircraft
    • Aerodynamic design, CFD and Multi-Fidelity methods
    • Control device and control concept design
    • Propulsion integration
    • Structure design and aeroelastic assessment
    • Signature aspects and design concepts
    • Flight mechanics analyses and control systems

    Emphasis will be placed on several mandatory aspects like:

    • Demonstration on application
    • Military impact and exploitation
    • Multi-Disciplinary aspect
