Photonics is a key enabling technology for many emerging systems for homeland and national security. The range of applications encompasses visible and IR imaging, 3-D ladar imaging, IR countermeasures, laser range finders and designators, chem.-bio sensing, OE networking of sensors, directed energy, and a host of others. The PhAST track on this topic will present the state of the art in many important facets of this exciting field of defense R&D.
