Due to the continued impact of COVID on in-person events, the 2022 Joint Conference will be held virtually.
The virtual conference is taking place during the dates of 31 October - 10 November. The Committee Unclassified Days will run 31 October - 4 November (BAMS: 31 October-1 November, Joint Sessions: 2 November, NSSDF: 3-4 November) followed by an S-VTC session on 10 November 2022.
Battlespace Acoustic, Seismic, Magnetic, and Electric-Field Sensing and Signatures Committee (BAMS)
Previously the ARL sponsored Acoustics Meeting, the BAMS specialty group joined IRIS in 1997 and began its evolution into the Military Sensing Symposium. The BAMS specialty group provides a mixed forum for unclassified distribution C and a SECRET level classified material focused on exploitation of mechanical wave (acoustic and seismic) and field strength (electric, magnetic, and gravitational) sensors to support military and homeland security applications. Beginning with theory, modeling and simulation, the group treats source and background phenomenology, propagation, noise mechanisms, detection, processing and interpretation. Signal and Information processing areas covered include beamforming, target detection and tracking algorithms, noise reduction, target identification, and fusion of inputs from multiple sensors and sensor/data sources. In the sensors area the group treats evolving requirements, improved sensor concepts and designs, performance, test and evaluation, and operational application. A key area of interest is sensor fusion of disparate sensing types at the node level. Specific applications covered include unattended ground sensors, persistent surveillance systems, sensors for robots, weapon mounted, and implanted acoustic sensors; littoral sensors; sensors on vehicles, airplanes, ships, UAVs and UGVs; acoustic, magnetic, hybrid and other mine (surface, buried and marine) detection sensors; tunnel detection sensors; vehicle signature identification; etc.
National Symposium on Sensor & Data Fusion Committee (NSSDF)The NSSDF conference provides a secure forum for the presentation, discussion, and dissemination of classified and unclassified foundational, technological, and application-focused innovations in the sensor, data, information, and knowledge fusion scientific domain within the defense, intelligence, and homeland security communities. NSSDF hosts both SECRET level and special sessions presenting the latest developments in integrated information operations (fusion) technology, requirements, and programs. Our intent is to bring together fusion researchers, practitioners, and users of multisource information from the academic, industrial, and governmental components of the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Intelligence Community, to discuss recent advances and new applications in sensor and data fusion that contribute to the defense of the United States.
Due to the continued impact of COVID, the 2022 Joint Conference is being held virtually. You must be fully registered to receive the virtual conference invite and attend virtual sessions.
Attendees who plan on attending the classified portion of the program will need to submit a clearance. Attendees who plan on ONLY attending the unclassified portions do not need to submit a clearance. However, all attendees must have an approved and active account on the MSS website to register. See the General Information brochure for detailed registration instructions. Please note that website account creation and conference registration are two separate steps. Plan accordingly as website account approval can take up to 5 business days.
