Washington DC, December 18, 2002. An upcoming two-day conference, "Optical Sensing for Homeland Security: A User-Driven Forum," will focus on the key role optical sensing technologies play in protecting national security and in aiding national defense. As it applies to homeland security, optical sensing is the use of optical beams and light to detect biological agents and pathogens in the environment, as well as for border surveillance.

This Forum will bring together representatives from the National Guard, U.S. Military, and other law enforcement and government agencies, the ultimate users of the technology, and its developers, including scientists, engineers and government and academic researchers.

Warfare is increasingly scientific and advancements in optical technology are crucial to the development of devices that will ensure our security at home and achieve success in offensive operations abroad. Current events demanded that this conference be held to encourage discussion between the nation's top defense experts and scientists on new developments that will affect the future of homeland security.

Optical Sensing for Homeland Security: A User-Driven Forum, will be held February 19 - 20, 2003 at the Hilton Washington Embassy Row Washington, DC
