A key issue which must be addressed in order for the potential benefits to be realised is guaranteed performance ofthe dynamic behaviour of MUAVs. In this part we shall focus on coordinating of MUAVs in a predictable and verifiable way, includingpreservation of communication network integrity.Part 2Bio-inspired sensing for autonomous operation of sensor platformsA key enabler for realisation of the battlefield potential of autonomous vehicles is endowing them with affordable sensing. Thisentails not only low-cost hardware, but also sparing use of the communication datalink, contrary to the current practice of realtimestreaming of video and other high-bandwidth sensor data for human-intensive, ground-based, off-line analysis. Bio-inspired approachto this problem leads to content-activated sensing, which means information extraction only in reaction to appearance of the relevantinformation in the data. Operating in GSP-denied environment is naturally addressed by this framework. In this part we shall focus oncontent-activated sensing, which can dramatically reduce the cost and time of sensor processing, datalink utilisationand also reduces human workload for the ground operator/analyst.Benefits of attending include:v Access to the most update technology research that will define the future of the UAV marketv How UAVs can operate in adverse environments where they previously would be unable to functionv A discussion on achieving a reduced operating personnel without impacting the intelligence gatheredv Achieving a reduction in both cost and time of sensor processingAFTERNOON SESSION: 13.00 – 15.30Hyper-Spectral and Multi-Spectral Imaging, Processing, and AnalysisLed By:Dr. Mike Cathcart, Group Lead, Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory, Georgia TechResearch InstituteGeorgia Tech is currently engaged in a Multi-University Research Initiative (MURI) program, sponsored by the Army Research Office.This program is designed to investigate and understand the detailed phenomenolgy underlying the detection of humans in traditionallydifficult circumstances (such as buildings, caves, tunnels, or camouflaged individuals). This is a basic research program designed toexplore new areas of human signature phenomenology in order to aid in the creation of new sensors, new sensor modalities, and newsensor network. The research results will have wide application in both military (such as sniper location, perimeter intrusion, cave &tunnel monitoring) and non-military applications (like border surveillance, smuggling, and search & rescue).How you will benefit:v Develop your knowledge of one of the leading ISR research programs in the USv Understand the latest developments in remote sensing technologies for use in difficult environmentsv Gain a unique perspective on how new sensor technologies are developed and take away valuable lessons for your business For your booking enquiries call us on +44 (0)20 7368 9737
