Yet GNSS signals are very easy to jam and spoof.</p> <p>Russia, China, Iran, along with several allies the United States have terrestrial systems to provide GPS-like services that can protect their populations and militaries from GNSS signal disruptions. The US and Europe don&rsquo;t and their adversaries feel free to regularly disrupt GNSS signals for both tactical and geopolitical/strategic reasons.</p> <p>The seminar will discuss how the US and Europe fell behind in this conflict, what is being done, and what should be done to protect the west&rsquo;s critical infrastructure and very way of life.</p></p> 3/23/2020 2:49:44 PM https://www.crows.org/page/NavTimingWar 2020 AOC Awards Nominations Due Tuesday, March 31! http://www.ecrow.org/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=608633&issueID=68330 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=68330>March 25, 2020</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>Submit nominations by Tuesday, March 31, 2020!</strong></span></p> <p>A central tenant of the AOC's mission is recognizing individuals, groups, and military units for their outstanding performance in furthering the aims of the AOC and the Electromagnetic Warfare enterprise.

Jim was a great man who dedicated his life to the safety of America&rsquo;s warriors in war and peace. He was a member of the Association of Old Crows since joining in 1972. At first, it was to understand the complexities of his duties as a Naval Officer and later to enhance his work in highly classified electronic warfare (EW) research and development at the US Naval Research Labs (NRL). Like so many others working on classified projects, the scope of his many contributions to the field of EW cannot be published.</p> <p>Upon retiring, he was determined to continue his work by consulting and volunteering with the Old Crow&rsquo;s Capitol Club. He volunteered for the last decade to attend, provide guidance and support the annual International Symposium and Convention in Washington, DC. Jim proudly directed specific activities while behind the scenes, discussing technical matters with briefers and participants. His inputs would add clarity and a richness to those presentations that otherwise would not have been had.</p> <p>Jim Talley was truly an Old Crow&rsquo;s Old Crow. His many contributions to the Capitol Club and to the men and women of the armed forces may never be fully known.

Jim was a great man who dedicated his life to the safety of America&rsquo;s warriors in war and peace. He was a member of the Association of Old Crows since joining in 1972. At first, it was to understand the complexities of his duties as a Naval Officer and later to enhance his work in highly classified electronic warfare (EW) research and development at the US Naval Research Labs (NRL). Like so many others working on classified projects, the scope of his many contributions to the field of EW cannot be published.</p> <p>Upon retiring, he was determined to continue his work by consulting and volunteering with the Old Crow&rsquo;s Capitol Club. He volunteered for the last decade to attend, provide guidance and support the annual International Symposium and Convention in Washington, DC. Jim proudly directed specific activities while behind the scenes, discussing technical matters with briefers and participants. His inputs would add clarity and a richness to those presentations that otherwise would not have been had.</p> <p>Jim Talley was truly an Old Crow&rsquo;s Old Crow.

Jim was a great man who dedicated his life to the safety of America&rsquo;s warriors in war and peace. He was a member of the Association of Old Crows since joining in 1972. At first, it was to understand the complexities of his duties as a Naval Officer and later to enhance his work in highly classified electronic warfare (EW) research and development at the US Naval Research Labs (NRL). Like so many others working on classified projects, the scope of his many contributions to the field of EW cannot be published.</p> <p>Upon retiring, he was determined to continue his work by consulting and volunteering with the Old Crow&rsquo;s Capitol Club. He volunteered for the last decade to attend, provide guidance and support the annual International Symposium and Convention in Washington, DC. Jim proudly directed specific activities while behind the scenes, discussing technical matters with briefers and participants. His inputs would add clarity and a richness to those presentations that otherwise would not have been had.</p> <p>Jim Talley was truly an Old Crow&rsquo;s Old Crow. His many contributions to the Capitol Club and to the men and women of the armed forces may never be fully known. But Jim Talley&rsquo;s true dedication to the craft of electronic warfare, the Association of Old Crows and to the Capitol Club will be greatly missed.</p> <p>James Talley&rsquo;s beloved wife of 56 years has provided Jim&rsquo;s obituary below:</p></p> 2/24/2020 3:12:25 PM https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/washingtonpost/obituary.aspx?n=james-talley-jim&amp;pid=195165010 Granite State Roost Promotes STEM through Outreach http://www.ecrow.org/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=604177&issueID=68326 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=68326>February 26, 2020</a> -- <em>Chapter News</em></strong><br /><p>The Academy for Science and Design in Nashua, NH recently hosted the AOC Granite State Roost&rsquo;s Earl "Skip" Stolz at their biannual da Vinci Day, an outreach event where academia and industry partner to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers to students.

Jim was a great man who dedicated his life to the safety of America&rsquo;s warriors in war and peace. He was a member of the Association of Old Crows since joining in 1972. At first, it was to understand the complexities of his duties as a Naval Officer and later to enhance his work in highly classified electronic warfare (EW) research and development at the US Naval Research Labs (NRL). Like so many others working on classified projects, the scope of his many contributions to the field of EW cannot be published.</p> <p>Upon retiring, he was determined to continue his work by consulting and volunteering with the Old Crow&rsquo;s Capitol Club. He volunteered for the last decade to attend, provide guidance and support the annual International Symposium and Convention in Washington, DC. Jim proudly directed specific activities while behind the scenes, discussing technical matters with briefers and participants. His inputs would add clarity and a richness to those presentations that otherwise would not have been had.</p> <p>Jim Talley was truly an Old Crow&rsquo;s Old Crow. His many contributions to the Capitol Club and to the men and women of the armed forces may never be fully known. But Jim Talley&rsquo;s true dedication to the craft of electronic warfare, the Association of Old Crows and to the Capitol Club will be greatly missed.</p> <p>James Talley&rsquo;s beloved wife of 56 years has provided Jim&rsquo;s obituary below:</p></p> 2/18/2020 3:03:48 PM https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/washingtonpost/obituary.aspx?n=james-talley-jim&amp;pid=195165010 LAST WEEK TO SUBMIT PRESENTATIONS! 45th Annual Dixie Crow Technical Symposium https://www.dixiecrowsymposium.com/ <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=68325>February 20, 2020</a> -- <em>Chapter News</em></strong><br /><p><em><strong>Maintaining Dominance in the Electromagnetic Spectrum&nbsp;(EMS) by Rapidly Fielding and Modifying Systems Using Open&nbsp;</strong><strong>Standards and Innovation</strong></em></p> <p><strong>March 22-25</strong><br />Century of Flight Hangar Museum of Aviation<br />Robins AFB, Georgia</p> <p><a href="http://www.ecrow.org/pdf/2020_Dixie_CrowSchedule_of_Events_2020Jan30.pdf"><strong>View the updated conference agenda here!</strong></a></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS:</strong></span></p> <p>We are soliciting topics in support of this year&rsquo;s theme, &ldquo;Maintaining Dominance in the<br />Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) by Rapidly Fielding and Modifying Systems Using Open<br />Standards and Innovation.&rdquo; Papers to support this theme should relate to Electronic Warfare<br />(EW), Intelligence, Surveillance &amp; Reconnaissance (ISR), or Avionics.

Jim was a great man who dedicated his life to the safety of America&rsquo;s warriors in war and peace. He was a member of the Association of Old Crows since joining in 1972. At first, it was to understand the complexities of his duties as a Naval Officer and later to enhance his work in highly classified electronic warfare (EW) research and development at the US Naval Research Labs (NRL). Like so many others working on classified projects, the scope of his many contributions to the field of EW cannot be published.</p> <p>Upon retiring, he was determined to continue his work by consulting and volunteering with the Old Crow&rsquo;s Capitol Club. He volunteered for the last decade to attend, provide guidance and support the annual International Symposium and Convention in Washington, DC. Jim proudly directed specific activities while behind the scenes, discussing technical matters with briefers and participants. His inputs would add clarity and a richness to those presentations that otherwise would not have been had.</p> <p>Jim Talley was truly an Old Crow&rsquo;s Old Crow.
