daily coverage of the optics & photonics industry and the markets that it serves

SPIE Security+Defence 2020

SPIE - The international society for optics and photonics.
21-24 September 2020
Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Edingburgh, United Kingdom

The conferences in SPIE Security + Defence crosses the divide between fundamental optical science and the application of the underpinning technologies in advanced defence and security systems. Interact with fellow engineers, scientists, programme managers and policy makers on the latest developments in sensing, data and signal analysis, quantum science, optical technologies, and funding programmes. Also while addressing the new challenges that continue to emerge: network-enabled capability/network-centric warfare evolve; asymmetric warfare: military operations in the urban theatre; and peace-keeping. The free exhibition offers access to over 30 participating companies as you make connections with suppliers and project partners.
