The 2021 MSS Parallel Conference is a meeting of the MSS Specialty Group on Detectors, the MSS Specialty Group on Materials, and the MSS Specialty Group on Battlefield Survivability and Discrimination.

While the Specialty Groups typically have their session meet in parallel with each other, the Materials & Detectors and BSD sessions will be held serially this year during the same week and treated as individual conferences.

BSD sessions will be held 1-3 September 2021.

MSS Specialty Group on Battlefield Survivability and Discrimination
The Battlefield Survivability and Discrimination Specialty Group evolved from the MSS Specialty Group on Camouflage, Concealment and Deception (CC&D) and focuses heavily on the survivability of both sea and battlefield platforms. It covers CC&D, Counter CC&D, Countermine, and IED Defeat topics. The meeting treats counter CC&D sensors including a heavy emphasis on Hyperspectral sensors. In addition, the human factors aspects of both detecting enemy assets and hiding US assets from the enemy is considered in depth.
