Battlespace Acoustic, Seismic, Magnetic, and Electric-Field Sensing and Signatures Committee (BAMS)

Previously the ARL sponsored Acoustics Meeting, the BAMS specialty group joined IRIS in 1997 and began its evolution into the Military Sensing Symposium. The BAMS specialty group provides a mixed fora including an unclassified distribution C forum and a SECRET level classified forum focused on exploitation of mechanical wave (acoustic and seismic) and field strength (electric, magnetic, and gravitational) sensors to support military and homeland security applications. Beginning with theory, modeling and simulation, the group treats source and background phenomenology, propagation, noise mechanisms, detection, processing and interpretation. Signal and Information processing areas covered include beamforming, target detection and tracking algorithms, noise reduction, target identification, and fusion of inputs from multiple sensors and sensor/data sources. In the sensors area the group treats evolving requirements, improved sensor concepts and designs, performance, test and evaluation, and operational application. A key area of interest is sensor fusion of disparate sensing types at the node level. Specific applications covered include unattended ground sensors, persistent surveillance systems, sensors for robots, weapon mounted, and implanted acoustic sensors; littoral sensors; sensors on vehicles, airplanes, ships, UAVs and UGVs; acoustic, magnetic, hybrid and other mine (surface, buried and marine) detection sensors; tunnel detection sensors; vehicle signature identification; etc.


National Symposium on Sensor & Data Fusion Committee (NSSDF)

The NSSDF conference provides a secure forum for the presentation, discussion, and dissemination of classified and unclassified foundational, technological, and application-focused innovations in the sensor, data, information, and knowledge fusion (SDIKF) scientific domain within the defense, intelligence, and homeland security communities. NSSDF hosts both SCI and SECRET level sessions presenting the latest developments in integrated information operations (fusion) technology, requirements, and programs. Our intent is to bring together fusion researchers, practitioners, and users of multisource information from the academic, industrial, and governmental components of the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Intelligence Community, to discuss recent advances and new applications in sensor
and data fusion that contribute to the defense of the United States.
