Restricted Session

Friday, August 25, 2017

The program includes a restricted session for US Department of Defense (DoD) government programs and associated contractors to present protected information and interact with peers in the EO calibration community.

The session is organized to include material that is restricted and either 1) unclassified with limited distribution or 2) classified up to the TOP SECRET//SI/TK classification level.

Participation in this session will require the appropriate documentation for each individual presenter and attendee.

*TOP SECRET//SI/TK Level

This year’s program will also include a section for presentations at the TOP SECRET//SI/TK Level. This portion of the program will be held in an appropriate venue at the Space Dynamics Laboratory and require verification of proper clearances in advance by all presenters and attendees.

Registration & Verification

Participation in this session will require separate registration as well as the appropriate documentation for each individual presenter and attendee.

Registration

Verification forms are due to USU Research Foundation Security no later than August 11, 2017. Photo identification will be required upon check-in.
