The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop of subject-matter experts on September 16, 2019, to gather information that will improve understanding of the science and technology (S&T) issues and opportunities in signature management for future U.S. Army missions. This workshop was part of a series of S&T activities under the National Academies Board on Army Research and Development. The goals of this meeting were to identify clear paths that illuminate knowledge of how biological systems sense prey and mask their signatures; explore promising S&T avenues to pursue and ways to improve information sharing; and to encourage a community of scholars to pursue these ideas further. This publication highlights the presentations of the workshop.
