    Meeting topics will comprise: 

      • Ammunition emissions analysis; Setup, measurement methods, results, analysis and interpretation
      • Computational prediction models; For predicting emission products and translation “lab-scale” to larger scale
      • Exposure to combustion products and the effect of modus operandi and local parameters such as wind, humidity and temperature
      • Toxicity assessment; Approach, mitigation procedures and interpretation

    For the detailed Time Schedule and Programme please refer to the Meeting Announcement on the right.

    Our Slovak hosts will organize an Evening Reception on Monday, 20 May 2019, at 19:00hrs at the Hotel Grand Jasna for all PBM participants. Also Participants of this Specialists' Meeting are cordially invited to take part.

    However, please note that places are limited to 250 participants and will be granted on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to attend this event, please make sure you have ticked the related box in the online registration form. You will be informed 3 weeks before the event if you made it amongst the first 250.

    As there are no restaurants in the proximity of the meeting venue a lunch buffet will be organised at 12:30 hrs every day. The lunch will be at your own expense, can be paid only in cash and will cost 7,50 Euros including a soft drink. The weekly menu will not contain any pork. Also vegetarian alternatives will be available. Please indicate in the following online form on which days you would like to pre-register for the lunch buffet. The organisers need to know the number of guests in advance for every day in order to be able to prepare adequate amounts of food.

    The General Information Package (GIP) for all Liptovsky Mikulas events is visible and available for download on this website at the right only for registered and officially re-confirmed participants.

    Enrollment validation time can vary from 1 to 20 days depending on your nationality. Thank you for your understanding.

    Urbanization is a key trend relevant to the future of conflict and NATO operations. Research shows that the majority of the future population will be living in complex mega-cities. Potential adversaries will be  among the civilian masses.

    The Aim and Intent of this workshop is to leverage the new Capstone Concept to explain the complexities associated with modern cities, convey the military importance of urban operations and develop an appreciation for the new capabilities and technologies needed to help NATO win in an urban environment.

    This online virtual workshop will consist of 2 half day sessions on 23-24 May 2019 (08:00 - 12:00 EST, 14:00 - 18:00 CET) through the NATO Innovation Hub. The meeting will be conducted via GoToMeeting and additional details will be sent out to participants one week before the meeting.  Participation is limited to 40 persons, so please indicate your expertise and what you hope to gain from this workshop during the online registration.

    You will first be put on a waiting list and afterwards selected participants will receive a confirmation.

    Registration closes on 19 May 2019.

    Tactical missiles can strike and intercept targets on land, in the air and at sea.

    NATO needs to maintain a capability edge over potential adversaries with new and upgraded missile systems.

    Concept definition is the first step towards a new missile system. Mission requirements will determine the size and performance of a system. Both are strongly related to the type and size of the propulsion sub-system.

    Currently, to perform conceptual design, military users, procurement agencies and defense contractors in NATO nations use individual proprietary models and different data bases. This leads to non-consistent results and is hindering collaboration.

    This is the registration for the first host location Oberammergau. This Technical Course will also be held at the following three other locations:

    27 – 29 August 2019 - NATO Joint Warfare Center, Stavanger, NOR 10 – 12 September 2019 - German Aerospace Center (DLR), Washington D.C., USA 17 – 19 September 2019 - Lancaster University Center Lancaster, CA, USA

    04 - 06 June 2019 - NATO School Oberammergau, Oberammergau, DEU

    27 – 29 August 2019 - NATO Joint Warfare Center, Stavanger, NOR

    10 – 12 September 2019 - German Aerospace Center (DLR), Washington D.C., USA

    17 – 19 September 2019 - Lancaster University Center Lancaster, CA, USA

    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.


    Topics to be covered:

    . Cyber Security Science

    . Identification and elements of Cyber Science that address the volume, velocity, variety and temporal nature of the (big) data

    . Steps and processes that define Cyber Security as a science

    . A documented articulation on scope and directions of Cyber Science

    . Should Cyber Security Science be considered a System of (complex) Systems?

    . Cyber Security (systems) Engineering

    . Cyber Security Architecture

    . Training specifically for cyber security incident response centre operations.

    . Near and long-term academic curricula and certification schemes on cyber security (systems) engineering.


    The General Information Package for this event will be available once your enrolment has been validated by the CSO.
