Photonics for unmanned autonomous systems

UAS at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2018

Call for papers opens soon
Present your sensing, imaging, and photonics technologies research for unmanned autonomous systems (UAS) applications at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing. Share the latest advancements that can be used to enhance air, ground, and underwater UAS such as LiDAR, infrared, multispectral and hyperspectral imaging, and more.

Benefits of being part of a topical track

If your paper is accepted, it will be cross-listed in the topical track/s indicated. SPIE will feature these online and in both the advance and final programs.

  • Gain additional exposure for your presentation
  • Help individuals interested in UAS easily find applicable presentations

How to sign up

You can indicate your paper is applicable for the UAS topical track during the online submission process.
