Sensor Symposium 2016

Every two years FMV arrange the Sensors Symposium in co-operation with the Swedish Armed Forces. The objective is to raise the competence level among personnel of both the Swedish Armed Forces and other defense agencies regarding our sensor systems and the information they generate.

The symposium will focus on research and development of sensors and sensor technologies, on a long term basis. It will also cover present system developments, including trends in architecture and processing technologies and methods.

The symposium is aimed primarily at government and industry in the defense sector in Sweden, but also foreign lecturers and guests are invited. Here you can take part of Powerpoint presentations from the day.
