Sensors & Seekers Test Technology Working Group's (SSTT WG) Annual Workshop

Registration is open to U.S. Citizens ONLY


Event Date: 
September 18, 2018 to September 19, 2018

The Sensors & Seekers Test Technology Working Group (SSTT WG) will hold their annual SSTT workshop 18-19 September 2018 at the Gossick Leadership Center (GLC) on Arnold Air Force Base outside Tullahoma, TN. The Arnold Engineering Development Complex will host this year’s event.


The SSTT WG is interested in the latest developments in resistive array and Light Emitting Diode (LED) UV and IR scene projector technologies. Especially high on the “wish list” is LED light extraction efficiencies, calibration and non-uniformity correction, and non-traditional approaches to scene projector technology. Having said that, you may submit topics related to the WG's activities, and the WG will review for interest.


Please submit a one-half-page abstract that explains the technical merit, significant contribution, recent advancement(s), and lessons learned from your project/efforts. Please let us know if you would like to present this information in one of the open sessions or during a closed session. The SSTTWG encourages presentation in the open forum to the maximum extent possible as our goal is to inform the greater audience on the latest technology advancements and on-going projects. Although we originally requested abstracts be submitted no later than 06 AUG 18, we are still accepting abstracts for review. Please email abstracts to We will not publish abstracts and papers from this workshop. Selected presenters will receive email notification and directions on submitting final presentations.


There are still a couple of open slots for closed sessions with the Government, so if your company would like to discuss something that is proprietary with the SSTT WG Steering Committee please let us know right away. 


Please submit any questions or concerns for this workshop to:
