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.

This year's conference brought a wide range of papers related to Airborne ISR Systems and Applications. The conference was broken into multiple sessions, which addressed several different parts of the ISR TCPED image chain (Tasking, Capture, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination):

  • 1. Platforms and Missions

  • 2. Optics and Stabilization

  • 3. Sensors and Systems

  • 4. Information Extraction/Quantification

  • 5. Image Processing

I would like to thank all of the authors for their efforts in making our conference such a success. We greatly appreciate them for writing and presenting their papers, as well as for their innovations in this exciting field that make our conference better each year. I look forward to the 2017 conference to see what additional advances have been made in these areas and what new technologies have been developed.

See you at Defense + Commercial Sensing 2017!
