|The AIAA / Homeland Security Program Committee presents the third annual Homeland Security
Conference: Mission Integration to address the needs of basic and applied researchers. The
conference will be held at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA Aug 31 - Sep 4, 2009.
Across the Federal, State, and Local homeland security landscape, the many agencies involved are
initiating programs that emphasize the value of working together even as they share overlapping
responsibilities. Increasingly, these agencies also find themselves in partnership with other public and
private entities. Operating in open, distributed environments, civilian and military agencies are
characterized by greater integration and interdependency among diverse sets of players. These agencies
tackle complex mission challenges in areas such as disease control, disaster response, environmental
protection, law enforcement, counter terrorism, intelligence gathering and stability operations. Such joint-
mission responsibilities require new organizational and operating strategies that enable Mission
Integration—the ability to collaborate and work closely with mission partners.
The purpose of the Third Annual Monterey Homeland Security Conference is to provide in-depth content
and practical insights to the Mission Integration theme. This conference is a premier forum that allows
government and industry to develop synergistic relationships to protect the United States from both
terrorists and disasters while securing our borders.
