Date: November 5-7, 2002
Army Research Laboratory (ARL)
2800 Powder Mill Road
Adelphi, Maryland 20783

About this conference:

The need to produce target geolocations in near real-time with high precision has never been greater and this workshop will update participants on requirements for precision targeting and the latest technologies being pursued. The three-day workshop continues cross-communication and understanding of the state-of-the-art in precision target geolocation begun in the earlier workshops and adds updated material from services and DoD agencies. Day 1 is an unclassified tutorial on precision geolocation using GPS, issues related to imagery accuracy, and a repeat of the video technology tutorial with new airborne HDTV footage. Days 2 and 3 will be classified SECRET and will update participants on service needs for high-precision target geolocation (Day 2) and introduce new geolocation technology projects and an update on the GRIDLOCK ACTD (Day 3).
