Leaders will discuss proposals for a shield against incoming missiles and high-tech surveillance systems. Leaders will also be shown a Bulgarian project to develop lightweight armor for helicopters, a jamming device under development in Estonia to thwart remote-controlled bombs, and a Spanish laser prototype to detect roadside explosive devices used by insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan.
