A full-day Forum addressing Safety, Security and Defence issues and featuring the EuMW Defence/Security Executive Forum
Wednesday 12 October 2011, 09.00 to 19.00, Room Charter 1
Attendance is FREE and open to all EuMW2011 conference delegates, exhibitors and visitors.
The resounding success of the inaugural EuMW Defence/Security Executive Forum at EuMW 2010 in Paris has prompted the joint
organisers, the European Microwave Association (EuMA) and Microwave Journal, to expand European Microwave Week’s coverage
of the Defence/Security sector with a full-day Forum.
Following the format that attracted over 200 attendees in Paris, the 2011 EuMW Defence/Security Executive Forum will again offer delegates the opportunity to benefit from the expertise and experience of representatives from government defence agencies and leading defence/security contractors who will provide insights into how their organizations view future threats to global safety, security and defence, and the role of technology in addressing these risks. The Executive Forum will conclude with an open panel discussion with questions from the floor.
The Executive Forum will keep its established early evening time slot and be preceded and complemented by morning and afternoon sessions. The agenda will include a Keynote which will set the scene and offer an overview of prevalent defence and security issues.
The morning session will focus on Safety and Security and consider the application of the microwave technology that is being developed
to increase security and address safety issues. World recognized experts will give tutorials and presentations on active and passive RF
detection and imaging techniques applied to short range stand-off surveillance and through-wall and buried sensing. The afternoon session will consider – Radar (and EW) Challenges for the 21st Century: An Industry Perspective – which will focus on the application of
microwave technology to provide security and counteract threats. The day’s proceedings will conclude with a Cocktail Reception which will give delegates the unique opportunity to discuss the issues raised in an informal setting.
