In the last several decades the use of Electro-optical / Infrared Seeker (EO/IR) technologies in Anti-Ship Missile (ASM) seekers has greatly expanded. To counter this increasing threat to NATO forces, an optimum design of a ship’s signature and the management of its signature are desired. The aim of the meeting is to provide an environment where best practices can be discussed and from which a standard NATO approach is documented.
The sole objective will be to hold a Research Specialists Meeting (RSM) titled “Above Water EO/IR Signature Requirements from an Operational Perspective” in the spring of 2019 at Defence Research Development Canada Valcartier Research Centre (DRDC-VRC) in Quebec City, Canada.
