Overview
Event Date: 
November 5, 2019 to November 6, 2019

The Sensors & Seekers Test Technology Working Group (SSTT WG) 2019 Annual Workshop, hosted by the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Center (AvMC), will take place 5–6 November 2019 in Huntsville, AL.

FOCUS:

The SSTT WG is always interested in the latest developments in resistive array and light-emitting diode (LED) ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) scene projector technologies. However, since we have a pretty good understanding of these technologies, the focus this year is on alternative technologies (carbon nanotubes, meta materials, etc.). The Steering Committee will accept and review abstracts on any topic in areas the community thinks is interesting and worth presenting to the WG.

ABSTRACTS / PRESENTATIONS:

Please submit a one-half-page abstract that explains the technical merit, significant contribution, recent advancement(s), and/or lessons learned from your project/efforts no later than COB 9 September 2019 via email to allen.hansen.1.ctr@us.af.mil. Selected presenters will receive email notification no later than 20 September 2019. Final presentations are due no later than 18 October 2019. The SSTT WG Steering Committee will not publish abstracts and papers from this workshop.

Day 26 November 2019Start: 8:00 am; End: 5:00 pm

The SSTT WG Steering Committee decided to hold only closed-session briefings from contractors, so unlike previous years, we will not be holding open-session briefings.

The Tuesday morning Government briefings will be open to all, with the remainder of the time dedicated to closed-session briefings. This will preclude company proprietary information getting out to non-Government personnel.

To the maximum extent possible, we will to schedule the "locals" on Wednesday. The "non-locals" may attend the Government briefs on Tuesday morning and give their presentations that afternoon. This is our attempt to help the out-of-towners with travel arrangements.

In past years, we have allowed multiple briefings from the same project. Due to reducing the workshop to two days, we are only allowing one presentation per project - please plan your time accordingly.

The closed session schedule will be available during the week of 23 September 2019.
