Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:
∎ The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.
∎ The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.
The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

5 Target Classification and Identification
In its fifth year as part of the SPIE Defense and Security Sensing Symposium, held 5–9 May 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland, the goal of this conference was to bring together the technical, operational (users), and policy community and provide a forum for the discussion of problems, issues, and technology involving interoperability for persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR). This Conference is about promoting and advancing technology and interoperability for persistent ISR, resulting in enhanced situational understanding for the warfighter decision makers!
The conference hosted 21 technical papers in oral presentations and was highlighted by two keynote speakers who are the U.S. leads for Unified Vision, which is a multinational, biannual NATO exercise that focuses on coalition ISR interoperability. The Conference featured five different session topics, including Data-to-Decision, Persistent Surveillance, Anomaly Determination, Interoperability and Target Classification/Identification.
I hope you find the proceedings both provocative and informative. I am looking forward to an even more exciting SPIE Defense and Security Sensing Symposium in 2015 and hope that everyone will join us.
