Description of the event

SPIE Security + Defence is the leading conference of its kind in Europe. Interact with fellow engineers, scientists, researchers, developers, and educators on technological advancements that continue to have an impact in the areas of sensing, data and signal analysis, tracking and targeting, communications, networks, sensor platforms, energy topics, materials and more.

With a European focus, SPIE Security+Defence and SPIE Remote Sensing attract more than 800 attendees in their combined technology areas. By becoming a part of this exhibit, you gain access to two distinct yet relevant audiences.

Take this opportunity to explore new opportunities of collaboration with partners from other fields of activity.  Leaders from the defence industries from both Europe and North America will gather to share topics and photonics technology developments related to this critical industry.
