The workshop starts on September 23 at 14:00 and closes on September 24 in the afternoon.

The workshop is open to the interested public (EU and NATO members).  

The following topics are of major interest for this Workshop:

  • Acoustic environment on the battlefield: vehicle, helicopter and weapon noise, IED and blast events (characteristics, metrology,etc.)
  • Hearing protection devices (earplugs, earmuffs, etc.
  • Auditory hazard and damage risk criteria
  • Noise regulation and application to the military context
  • Noise control and audio communication (advanced active personal
    protection devices)
  • Advanced techniques in signal processing, 3D audio display,
  • Acoustic sensors for counter-sniping, for ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance
    and Reconnaissance) applications, for acoustic locators
    and for sensor networks
  • Performance of acoustic systems for detection and localization
    including the influence of the environmental conditions
    (acoustic propagation)
  • National or international actions in these fields (DGA,
    BAAINBw, EDA, etc.)
