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

tional Photonics Initiative (NPI).

The NPI is a key recommendation of the recent National Academies study "Optics and Photonics, Essential Technologies for our Nation." It is intended to increase visibility of the role of photonics in economic growth and ensure long-term government funding for photonics-based research.

Funding and budgets are always of great interest at DSS, and travel restrictions were a leading topic of discussion this year. Attendees said they see current U.S. restrictions depriving government scientists and engineers of opportunities to stay abreast of the latest developments. The results, they contend, will be a slowing of adoption and deployment of life-saving technologies, and ultimately a compromised U.S. defense capability.

A plea from the community was for policy-makers to provide waivers for government personnel to attend technical meetings such as DSS where the seeds of future capabilities are sown.

DSS will stay in the Baltimore Convention Center for the foreseeable future, with next year’s meeting running 5-9 May. The 2014 call for papers will open in July, with expanded tracks on commercial applications for sensing and imaging technologies.

"The strength of the conference and exhibition validates relocation of the event to Baltimore, in close proximity to a high density of government, industry, and academic institutions," Brown said.

Accepted papers are being published in the SPIE Digital Library as soon as approved and in print volumes and digital collections.
