For 2015, NAECON is combining with the Ohio Innovation Summit to exploring new research and contributions for core intelligent aerospace sensor integration in the following areas; Innovative Aerospace Technology, Intelligent Sensory Exploitation and Wireless & Information Interoperability.

This conference is a major forum for researchers, practitioners, and students interested in aerospace systems, and their impact on computing, information, processing, design, and applications.  The topics for paper submission include, but are not limited to, three application areas:  Innovative Information Processing; Sensory Exploitation; and Trust in Electronics, Cyber and Next-Generation Systems.

Application Areas

1. Innovative Information Processing

Radar, Cognitive Signal Processing & Visualization for RF Sensing, Monitor & Optical Surveillance Methods (ATR), Antennas, Navigation, Knowledge-based systems, Bio-Inspired Intelligent Information Processing, and Hybrid Control Systems.

2. Sensory Exploitation

Recent Advances in RFIC Technology, Aerospace Power Systems and Electronics,  Photonics, nanoDevices and Advanced Materials, Reconfigurable Computing,  Advanced Terahertz and Millimeter Wave Devices,  Multi-Sensor Exploitation/Fusion, Image Exploitation & Identification Algorithms,
and RF and Nonlinear Signal Processing.

3. Trust in Electronics, Cyber and Next-Generation Systems

Collaborative and Distributive Processing, Bio-Inspired Systems and Cyber-Physical Applications,  Autonomy and Machine Learning and Quantum Sensing and Computation, Resource Management, Next generation Cyber, and Information connectivity.

4. Algorithms for Tracking in Aerial Surveillance

Robust visual tracking from aerial platforms, tracking for: wide area surveillance, persistence surveillance, multiple targets, image stabilization, activity recognition, anomaly detection, object detection, foreground/background segmentation, and/or applications of aerial surveillance

5. 7th International Symposium on Monitoring & Surveillance Research

The ISMSR actually is the7th annual event and is the continuation of the IEEE International Symposium on Research on Assistive Technologies (2007) and the Assistive and Monitoring Technologies tracks from the IEEE Conferences (TAI, BIBE, IISA) 2008-2012. The annual IEEE International Symposium on Monitoring & Surveillance Research (ISMSR) provides a major international forum where the creation and exchange of ideas related to smart homes, ambient assistive living, and monitoring and surveillance research are fostered among academia, industry, and government agencies. The symposium facilitates the cross-fertilization of these ideas and promotes their transfer into practical tools, for developing intelligent systems and pursuing monitoring and surveillance applications, like Bioinformatics and Bioengineering. The ISMSR encompasses all technical aspects of specifying, developing and evaluating the theoretical underpinnings and applied mechanisms of the Monitoring and Surveillance based components of computer tools (i.e. algorithms, architectures and languages), smart devices and environments, and advanced sensors.

The Grand Challenge Problem will be in the area of pico-satellite system design (See
