Gamers have convinced Pok&eacute;mon Go that they are thousands of miles away in remote locations to collect virtual prizes. - Once the province of highly skilled technologists, GPS signal spoofing is now available to every nation and every consumer. Recent work has shown that it is even relatively simple to spoof multiple GNSS constellations at the same time. This Webinar will explore the development of spoofing technology, provide examples of documented spoofing incidents, and discuss countermeasures that can be taken to help avoid being spoofed.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Click <a href="https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142362">here </a>to register!</strong></span></p></p> 10/15/2018 11:36:57 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142362 DON'T MISS PART 2 OF THIS WEBINAR: Demystifying Radar and Jammer Range Equations - Part 2, December 13, 14:00 - 15:00 EST https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1159506 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61340>October 17, 2018</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>In a break with tradition, the previous webinar on this topic dealt with the mathematical origins of the range equations. But rest assured, normal service will now be resumed with this webinar focusing on the real-world implications of these results. </p> <p>The range equations are at the heart of a wide range of important EW topics such as the need for coherent jammers (e.g. DRFMs), why RWRs can be effective with surprisingly poor sensitivity, the meaning of burn-through range, some of the reasons stealth is so expensive, how LPI/LPD operation is achieved, and why radars tend to have more powerful transmitters than jammers. Each of these topics will be explored to demonstrate the significance and practical value of the range equations. <br /> It will be assumed that attendees are familiar with the range equations and their origin, so attendees are advised to watch the first webinar in this series before this webinar.</p></p> 10/17/2018 7:48:20 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1159506 INDUSTRY NEWS: Second Phase of Multi-Domain Task Force Pilot Headed to Europe https://www.army.mil/article/212342/second_phase_of_multi_domain_task_force_pilot_headed_to_europe <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61340>October 17, 2018</a> -- <em>Industry News</em></strong><br /><p>After recent testing of multi-domain operations in the Pacific, the Army now plans to expand its future warfighting concept to Europe this coming fiscal year.

First, through a discussion of the classes of angle tracking, such as: lobe-on-receive-only (LORO) and monopulse, along with their vulnerabilities. The webinar will then focus on the primary forms of Electronic Attack (EA) that create angular errors, such as amplitude modulation, cross-eye jamming, and cross-polarization jamming. Finally, the presentation will conclude with guidance on how to integrate angle deception with other forms of EA, along with active and passive decoys, to develop an effective countermeasure.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Register <a href="https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142357">here </a>today!</strong></span></p></p> 10/8/2018 10:26:45 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142357 PRE-REGISTRATION CLOSES OCTOBER 17 for the 4th Annual Cyber Electromagnetic Activity Conference (CEMA), October 23-25, Aberdeen, Maryland https://www.crows.org/general/custom.asp?page=CEMA2018 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61339>October 11, 2018</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>The theme for this year&rsquo;s CEMA conference is: &ldquo;CEMA as a Critical Enabler to Modernization Priorities".

This webinar introduces the various methods of achieving that error using angle deception techniques. First, through a discussion of the classes of angle tracking, such as: lobe-on-receive-only (LORO) and monopulse, along with their vulnerabilities. The webinar will then focus on the primary forms of Electronic Attack (EA) that create angular errors, such as amplitude modulation, cross-eye jamming, and cross-polarization jamming. Finally, the presentation will conclude with guidance on how to integrate angle deception with other forms of EA, along with active and passive decoys, to develop an effective countermeasure.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Register <a href="https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142357">here </a>today!</strong></span></p></p> 10/1/2018 9:27:45 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1142357 REGISTER NOW for the 4th Annual Cyber Electromagnetic Activity Conference (CEMA), October 23-25, Aberdeen, Maryland https://www.crows.org/general/custom.asp?page=CEMA2018 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61338>October 3, 2018</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>The theme for this year&rsquo;s CEMA conference is: &ldquo;CEMA as a Critical Enabler to Modernization Priorities".

Today, SIGINT provides the foundation for all intelligence assessment. This webinar will focus on the technical collection of intelligence from the electromagnetic spectrum under the headings of communications intelligence (&lsquo;COMINT&rsquo;) and electronic intelligence (&lsquo;ELINT&rsquo;). An overview will be provided to SIGINT collection methods used on the ground, in the air, in maritime and overhead (satellite). Additionally, we will look at the technologies involved, particularly at receiver technology and signals processing. A brief look at Russian and Chinese capability will demonstrate that SIGINT is now a world-wide capability. The webinar will conclude with a introduction to how SIGINT in the EM spectrum is now at the forefront of combating terrorism.&nbsp;</p> <p>To register for the webinar, click <a href="https://events-na11.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/1099999966/en/events/event/shared/default_template/event_registration.html?sco-id=1892888294&amp;_charset_=utf-8">here</a>!</p></p> 8/6/2018 1:30:44 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1128093 AOC Support to International EW Workshop 2018 KOREA http://www.ecrow.org/pdf/International_EW_Workshop_Korea_2018.pdf <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=61330>August 8, 2018</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>On Thursday 12 July, AOC President-Elect, Muddy Watters, International Region 2 Director, Jeff Walsh and Director Global Conferences, John Clifford OBE, joined members of the Republic of Korea Roost, led by Dr Kwang ILL Lee at an International EW Workshop co-organised by the ROK Air Force, ROK Roost and Agency for Defence Development in Seoul.
