SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2013 Highlights Vital Role of Photonics for Defense and Commercial Applications
Date:5/7/2013

BALTIMORE, Maryland, and BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing (DSS), with over 6,000 registered attendees in Baltimore last week, highlighted the importance of photonics technologies in defense and commercial applications. Established in the late 1970s, the annual event draws international participants from government, industry, and academia.

"The robust participation in DSS -- even with budget cuts around the world and sequestration and government travel restrictions in the U.S. -- is a clear expression of the value placed on advancing and employing these technologies for the most challenging of applications across the industrial and security sectors," said Andrew Brown, SPIE Senior Director for Business Development.

The exhibition showcasing 490 companies provided a well-stocked marketplace for IR systems, lasers, and advanced optics. Building on the event’s Baltimore debut in 2012, the number of visitors to the exhibit increased again this year, and exhibitors had positive comments about the quality of leads. As longtime SPIE exhibitor Michael Myers, president of Kigre, Inc., said, "I could have left after the first day -- we had so many leads. This show has been great for us."

Highlights of the technical symposium included presentations by plenary speaker Arati Prabhakar, director of DARPA, and banquet speaker and DSS Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Letitia Long, director of the U.S. National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.

Prabhakar described future solutions to security needs as being "full of photons," telling her audience of photonics professionals, "if we do our job, and you work with us, all of us get to be part of creating a whole new generation of technology for national security."
