Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique 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 citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Over the years, the conference on Sensors and Systems for Space Applications has held seven technical meetings. As we reflect back on another successful consecutive offering in science and technology in and from space, several things stand out. Of course, Modular-Open-System Architecture principles and Better Buying Power 3.0 Initiatives—as featured in the invited talk by Dr. Tien Nguyen from The Aerospace Corporation—were quite interesting, and their impact on space enterprise and DoD resilient program acquisition strategies are just beginning. Additionally, a greater understanding of radio interference sources, the impact of radio interference on civil and military communication systems, and cyberization of space systems all occupied significant amounts of our time for paper solicitation. Regarding timely reporting of emerging capabilities for sensors and space systems, we decided to focus on some application areas where advanced science and technologies are making an impact. In particular, the session titles are adaptively categorized each year to represent the changing contents driven by the goal of providing the dual-use civil-military sensors and systems that can be relied upon in congested and contested environments. This year, the technical presentations have been grouped into the following sessions:

  • Space Payload Technologies

  • Cyber Physical Systems

  • Protected Satellite Communications

  • Positioning, Navigation, and Tracking

  • Space Situational Awareness

  • Processing and Exploitation

We are pleased to acknowledge the authors that chose this avenue for the publication of their technical contributions, which have resulted in high-quality work in the SPIE database. We also would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of our program committee and the session chairs for their tireless support to make this conference another success despite continued budget cuts and government travel restrictions. Thanks are also due to the SPIE staff for their invaluable help in making this all possible.

As the conference chairs, we speak for the conference’s program committee in saying that we really do need new members and volunteers, and we sincerely want to hear what you have to say. This includes getting help and hearing from you regarding technical (and other) matters, ranging from the way this conference is run to the presentations in this proceeding volume. The program committee and volunteers have gotten us this far and continue to allow us to move forward as a whole.

Lastly, looking ahead to 2016, we wish success to our new committee members for next year. And to you, our readers, many thanks for your continued interest. What more could a conference chair want?
