3 Pillars of EW - Electronic Support

(Part II of a three-part series)

Thursday, November 14, 2019 14:00-15:00 EDT (18:00-19:00 UTC)

This second session in the 3-part series covers the importance of Electronic Support.  The terms Electronic Support (ES) or Electronic Support Measures (ESM) describe the division of electronic warfare involving actions taken under direct control of an operational commander to detect, intercept, identify, locate, record, and/or analyze sources of radiated electromagnetic energy for the purposes of immediate threat recognition, cueing EA, situation assessment, or longer-term operational planning. Thus, Electronic Support provides a source of information required for decisions involving Electronic Attack (EA), threat avoidance, targeting, Electronic Protection (EP), and other tactical employment of forces.  This Webinar will cover basic ES principles to include: ES System Components; Signal Processing; Direction Finding Techniques; GEO Location Techniques; Factors that impact ES; and ES Collection and Data Bases.

Be sure to register for Part 3, covering Electronic Protection (EP).

21st Century Electronic Warfare, Systems, Technology, and Techniques
Dr. Clayton Stewart  |  2/3/2020 - 2/21/2020  |  Web Course
This course offers a comprehensive overview of modern electronic (EW) warfare systems, technology, and techniques. The domains of electronic attack, electronic support, and electronic protection will all be explored.

EW Modeling and Simulation
Dave Adamy | 3/2/2020 – 3/25/2020 | Web Course
This is a practical course in which the basic concepts and techniques of Electronic Warfare modeling and simulation concept evaluation, training, and Test and Evaluation are presented and the students learn how to apply them to practical problems.

EW Against a New Generation of Threats
Dave Adamy | 4/13/2020 - /29/2020 | Web Course
This is a practical, hands-on course which covers Spectrum Warfare and current EW approaches, and moves on to discuss the new equipment capabilities and Tactics that are required to meet the new threat challenges.

Intermediate Electronic Warfare
Dr. Clayton Stewart | 6/19/2020 – 6/20/2020 | Web Course
This course is intended for an audience that has some familiarity with electronic warfare (EW) but wants to gain additional depth and breadth in the subject.

Missile Design, Development, and System Engineering
Eugene Fleeman | 7/13/2020 – 7/31/2020 | Web Course
Technologies for missiles are rapidly emerging, resulting in the frequent introduction of new missile systems. The capability to meet the requirements for performance, cost, risk, and launch platform integration of missile systems is driven by missile design, development, and system engineering.

Electronic Warfare Signal Processing
Kyle Davidson | 9/14/2020 – 9/30/2020 | Web Course
This course introduces students to Electronic Warfare (EW) signal processing systems and their implementation, providing a foundation in learning to solve modern EW problems.

Electro-Optical/Infrared Sensor Engineering
Dr. Phillip Pace | 10/5/2020 – 10/28/2020 | Web Course
This course presents the fundamentals of electro-optical (EO) & infrared (IR) sensor technology, its analysis and its application to military search, track and imaging systems. Electronic warfare (electronic attack and electronic protection) are emphasized.

Critical Thinking and EW System Development
Dr. Patrick Ford | 12/6/2020 – 12/7/2020 | Web Course
Through a series of discussions and notional exercises, this course will help systems analysts, engineers, software programmers and program managers to better understand how discarding even the most basic of engineering and physics constraints - or conversely, not leveraging same - can directly impact development risks, system capabilities and program costs.

"Advancing Electromagnetic Operations in the Asia Pacific Region"
February 4-5, 2020, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

The 4th AOC EW Asia event will consider the future of EW and EM Operations in the changing light of current and emerging threats.

The conference will consist of plenary sessions focusing on operations, defence capability development, and industry inventiveness. AOC EW Asia 2020 will bring together the EW, SIGINT, C4ISR, Cyber EM Activities (CEMA) communities and more. Speakers will include leaders and operators from the military, government, and academia, S&T and international R&D communities and, crucially, industry. This is an unclassified, English-language, pan Asia-Pacific event providing unique networking opportunities, a specialist exhibition and a world-class conference.

AOC EW Asia Agenda Revealed!

The conference agenda for the 2020 edition of AOC Electronic Warfare Asia has been announced.

Keynote speakers include:
- AVM Peter Nicholson, Executive & Project Director (ED + PD), Institute for Regional Affairs, Australia
- Air Marshal Daljit Singh, Indian Air Force (Retd)
- Dr. Seng Hong, Senior Adviser, US Air Force Research Lab

Tackling the theme of Enabling Electromagnetic Operations in the Asia Pacific Region, the event looks set to attract in excess of 350 EW-focussed attendees. Browse the full agenda online here. 

 

Outlining Approval Paths and Best Practices to Export EW Technology.

This forum provides a venue for stakeholders, thought-leaders and experts in Releasability, Export Control and Electronic Warfare to come together to focus on the USG processes required to acquire export approval via direct commercial sales (DCS) and foreign military sales (FMS) of EW technology. The first day will be classified SECRET / US Only and outline the specific technology release processes and best practices to enable positive export decisions for industry and the USG. The second day will be focused on our foreign allies and outline best practices and ways to leverage USG DCS and FMS modalities of sale to procure capabilities that fulfill EW operational requirements.

US Secret Only (Day 1) and Unclassified (Day 2)

Registration for this event opens December 3!
