We welcome you to the SPIE Defense+ Security 2016, the leading meeting for scientists, researchers, and engineers from industry, military, government agencies, and academia throughout the world.For more than 20 years Defense + Security has been one of the largest defense technology meetings worldwide, and it is the key event featuring optics, imaging, and sensing.

One of the strengths of Defense + Security is its central location in the Baltimore Inner Harbor, close to the center of many U.S. Federal Government offices/agencies and many of the largest defense/security contractors and aerospace companies in America. Defense + Security is a prime event for government acquisition, policy, and program executive representatives. 

We know that you will enjoy the conferences and all events at the Symposium, and Baltimore!
