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

She illustrated what she termed the “virtuous cycle (of) defense needs and commercial opportunity" with numerous photonics examples resonant with topics being reported in conference rooms -- night vision equipment, smart prostheses, cyber security systems, and more. (See a video of Prabhakar’s talk at http://spie.org/DARPAtalk).

“Working with this community has resulted in innovations that have saved lives,” Long said in her talk. “It has turned big data into big value. You, in SPIE, are our partners. You continue to develop the sensors of the future, to help us with the integration of the innovation, to develop the automated tools as close to the primary data as possible. This enables our analysts the time to analyze information and deliver better knowledge, so policy makers have more options. This is about decision advantage.”

Symposium Chair Kenneth Israel (Major General, USAF Retired) and Cochair David Whelan (Vice President, Engineering, Boeing Defense, Space, and Security) had high praise for the quality of the nearly 2,250 technical presentations and the products and systems showcased in the exhibition.

Advanced sensors, IR technologies, flexible displays, “big data" and analysis, high-power lasers, cyber security, and bio-integrated devices were among well-attended topics in the conference rooms. A sampling of technical papers, video, and a photo gallery are posted in daily reports from on-site at http://spie.org/DSSnews.

SPIE CEO Eugene Arthurs gave the exhibitor community an in-depth analysis of the U.S. defense budget and urged the community to get behind the launch of the Na
