Plan to Participate

We invite you to participate in 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 urge you to participate by submitting your abstracts, and encourage your colleagues to do the same.

We hope to see you again in Baltimore!
