EDUCATING THE SPECTRUM WARRIOR: Make Plan Now to Attend the Harnessing STEM & Spectrum Management Conference this November in Florida!
This inaugural conference addresses key Special Operations concerns about tomorrow’s EMS battlespace, specifically the programming, planning and execution of operational Special Operations Forces within the EMS across all domains. This highly charged aspect of the conference will have presentations from SOF senior leaders, operators and programmers. Declining SOF budgets make it imperative that government, industry and academia come together to demonstrate innovation in speedy acquisition and development of critical EMS enabling capabilities.
 

EW ASIA 2012: The Future of Electronic Warfare in the ASEAN and Pacific Regions
EW Asia 2012 will build on the success of last year's inaugural event when more than 300 attendees and 20 leading exhibitors met in Singapore. On November 27-28 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, government, military commanders, military operators, politicians, scientists, academics and the industry will come together to discuss the latest developments in EW and related EM capabilities, such as ISTAR, communications and SIGINT across all war-fighting domains. EW Asia 2012 will also provide the opportunity for international industry to explore the possibilities in the rapidly expanding markets in the ASEAN region.

This year’s event will feature conference sessions over two days (November 27-28), social and networking events and a dedicated exhibition area. The AOC welcomes the opportunity to work with a new logistics partner, Tangent Link, which has considerable expertise in the region and in EW and related events.

DATES JUST ANNOUNCED: 2012 UAS/RPA Payloads/Requirements/ Operations Conference, December 4-6 in Las Vegas!

This conference will explore current payloads and operations in ongoing day-to-day operations. We will discuss and identify short-term and long-term program requirements, identify capability gaps and help develop courses of action to address them.

Today, it is more important than ever to bring military, government, industry, academia and research labs together to ensure our military men and women have the tools and knowledge needed to be successful in tomorrow's battlespace. Both state-supported and non-state-supported adversaries' acquisition timeline is many times inside of the U.S. and our Allies timeline due to them using OTS equipment and utilizing the fast pace of technologies to improvise these products for use in the battlespace.

It is imperative for us to continue to identify current and future capabilities and gaps to develop courses of action utilizing each organizations' knowledge, technology, R&D and manpower.

SHAPE THE BATTLEFIELD: Attend the AOC Land EW Conference, December 11-13 in Quantico, VA
Within many military circles, it is becoming more and more evident that the electromagnetic spectrum and its manipulation, with a variety of toolsets, will dictate the actions of commanders in the 21st century. Whether monitoring a ground radar or leading from an operations center, the increased attention revolving around cyberspace and activities associated with the information environment are warranted given their ability to manipulate a commander’s perception of the battlefield. From an EMS perspective, the challenge is twofold: identifying the right technologies and then institutionalizing their use. Effective manipulation of the EMS requires that members clearly understand their roles and responsibilities so as to ensure spectrum activities support commander’s intent.

History has demonstrated that commanders who shape their battlefield, thereby dictating the tempo of operations, will eventually emerge victorious. However, history also has proven that control of a single war-fighting domain does not allow a commander to dictate terms within the battlespace. It is the combining of arms in all of the domains that has proven the most effective in eventually defeating or placating an adversary.

The AOC Land EW Conference provides focus on technological and organizational efforts, from land component perspective toward meeting these ends. Sessions and demonstrations provide evidence of how the U.S. and Allied services are implementing technology and changing organizational paradigms in order to manipulate the EMS environment.
