Active E-O Systems
MSS is intended to bring the DoD technical and user community together to review and discuss advances in Active E-O Systems. Attendees include key government and industry decision-makers, program managers, and leading technical experts. This Symposium offers an overview of major active programs, a window on significant trends, and the opportunity to present new technology to the community. The MSS Active E-O Systems Symposium provides the premier forum for the military application of active electro-optical (E-O) and laser systems. Our annual meeting features presentations on requirements and solutions based on efforts carried out by government and industrial organizations. Although our symposium accepts unclassified papers, it is, in addition, the only forum for the presentation of material and/or materials not accepted for public release.

Electro-Optical & Infrared Countermeasures
The Electro-Optical Countermeasures Specialty Group provides a forum that focuses on countermeasures and counter-countermeasures for electro-optically based sensors, seekers, and systems operating from the UV through the far-far infrared. The group focuses on the signatures of US platforms and the suppression of those signatures in order to make the job of countering enemy sensors and seekers easier. Threats are characterized including various types of missile seekers and other guided weapons, in order to develop specific means of countering them. Warning systems that inform platform crew of impending threats or automatically trigger countermeasure systems are covered, including various types of missile and laser warning systems and systems used for situational awareness. Self-protection decoys and active countermeasures systems such as jammers are treated. Finally the group also focuses specifically on hardening of sensors against enemy laser threats to those sensors.
