New systems need to have modern software architectures that can keep pace with commercial software development cycles and loosely coupled to hardware. This will enable future hardware and software systems to run in diverse environments. Dated systems built with one specific purpose and function (e.g., one individual system for electronic attack; a different system for electronic support measures, etc.) require ongoing upgrades and multiple parts, which can limit mission effectiveness and slow down critical mission turnaround time.&nbsp;</p></p> 8/12/2019 3:58:14 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1223968&amp;group= REGISTER NOW: 5th Annual Cyber Electromagnetic Activity (CEMA) Conference, October 8 - 10, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD https://www.crows.org/page/CEMA2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63987>August 14, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em>On the Road to Army of 2028 - Delivering Integrated EW, SIGINT and Cyber at the Tactical Echelon.</em></p> <p><strong><span style="color: #0000ff;"><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://www.crows.org/page/CEMA2019#registration"><em>REGISTER HERE!</em></a></span></strong></p> <p><u></u><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>SPEAKERS ANNOUNCED!</strong></span></p> <p><strong>General John M. &ldquo;Mike&rdquo; Murray -&nbsp;</strong>Commanding General, US Army Futures Command (invited)<br /><strong>LTG Scott David Berrier</strong> -&nbsp;United States Army&nbsp;- Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army G-2 (Intelligence) - (invited)<br /><strong>LTG Stephen Fogarty</strong> -&nbsp;USA&nbsp;- Commanding General, Army Cyber Command (invited)<strong><br />The Honorable Dr. Bruce D.

Being a Chapter President has been a challenging role. This past year has been difficult to manage work and life, and my efforts with the AOC have dropped considerably. I don't think I did enough to even get a chapter of the year award again. I can't find a volunteer to take over, either, so I guess you get what you get and you don't throw a fit.</p> <p>But, today was my birthday. It started with getting coffee and my barista guessing my age at 41. I turned 36 today. I am no longer an AOC Young Crow, as defined as 35 and under. I've been one for almost a decade, so it's strange. The fact that ladies regularly think I'm in my forties (the highest I've gotten is 55!) is an indicator that I'm not aging well.</p></p> 8/5/2019 2:11:30 PM http://www.ecrow.org/pdf/Pikes_Peak_Roost_Chapter_Meeting.pdf AOC UK Chapter to Host Seminar at DSEI 2019: Hybrid Warfare, Cyber Electromagnetic Activities and Electronic Warfare - where we are and where we need to go, September 12, London, UK http://www.ecrow.org/pdf/20190723_DSEI_2019_UK_Chapter_Seminar.pdf <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63986>August 7, 2019</a> -- <em>Chapter News</em></strong><br /><p>The AOC and Clarion Events are event partners for EW conferences and exhibitions held in Europe and Asia.

For each of these methodologies, a brief technical introduction is followed by a discussion of that methodology&rsquo;s relative strengths and weaknesses, appropriate applications, and the areas in which a given methodology is most commonly employed.&nbsp;</p></p> 7/29/2019 3:47:35 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1223563&amp;group= REGISTER NOW: 5th Annual Cyber Electromagnetic Activity (CEMA) Conference, October 8 - 10, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD https://www.crows.org/page/CEMA2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63985>July 31, 2019</a> -- <em></em></strong><br /><p><em>On the Road to Army of 2028 - Delivering Integrated EW, SIGINT and Cyber at the Tactical Echelon.</em></p> <p><strong><span style="color: #0000ff;"><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://www.crows.org/page/CEMA2019#registration"><em>REGISTER HERE!</em></a></span></strong></p> <p><u></u><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>SPEAKERS ANNOUNCED!</strong></span></p> <p><strong>General John M. &ldquo;Mike&rdquo; Murray</strong>&nbsp;- Commanding General, US Army Futures Command (Invited)<br /><strong>LTG Scott David Berrier,</strong> United States Army&nbsp;- Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army G-2 (Intelligence) - (Invited)<br /><strong>Lt.

Examples of STT and TWS systems will be discussed, along with how they could effectively be deceived.&nbsp;</p></p> 7/1/2019 2:40:03 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1209279&amp;group= REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the 56th Annual AOC International Symposium and Convention, October 28-30, Washington, DC https://www.crows.org/mpage/2019home <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63981>July 3, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em>Building the EMS Enterprise</em></p> <p>The AOC International Symposium &amp; Convention, the industry&rsquo;s leading, three-day event, brings together nearly 2000 professionals from 30+ countries spanning industry, military, and government sectors.&nbsp;Learn from subject matter experts and influencers from military, government, academia and industry who will speak to a multitude of topics around the theme of &ldquo;Building the EMS Enterprise&rdquo;.
