Unlike filters that merely wall off a range of frequencies, self-interference cancellation directly attacks the interfering signal. Consequently, it can be used to eliminate interference between co-located radios, enable unprecedentedly aggressive frequency reuse, and generally facilitate spectrum sharing by doing away with guard bands and permitting total flexibility in frequency assignments. By virtue of its fundamental nature, self-interference cancellation will have a tremendous impact on the design of future networks. This presentation will discuss the evolution of the technology since its roots at Stanford University, its applications, implementation challenges, and state-of-the-art performance based on dedicated integrated circuits (ICs) that have been developed to enable mass adoption of the technology.</p></p> 4/16/2019 8:31:05 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1206184&amp;group= REGISTER NOW: 11th Annual Electronic Warfare Capability Gaps and Enabling Technologies Conference, May 14-16, Crane, IN https://www.crows.org/page/Crane2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63970>April 17, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em><strong>Achieving Freedom to Maneuver Leveraging Non-Kinetic Capabilities</strong></em></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Distinguished Speakers</strong></span></span></p> <p><strong>Dr. Paul Zablocky,&nbsp;</strong>Strategic Technology Office (STO), Program Manager<br /><strong>Dr. William Conley,</strong> Director Electronic Warfare, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, Acquisition and Sustainment<strong><br /></strong><strong>Mr. Bryan Clark,</strong> Senior Fellow, CSBA<br /><strong>BGEN Frank Kelley,</strong> <strong>USMC (Ret),</strong> Vice President, Defense Acquisition University (DAU)</p> <p><strong><span style="color: #0000ff;"><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.crows.org/resource/resmgr/conferences/2019_conferences/crane/Crane_Agenda_Draft_5-14-19_v.pdf">Click Here to view the Draft Agenda!</a></span></strong></p> <p>This forum provides a venue to for stakeholders, thought-leaders and experts in Electronic Warfare to come together to focus on the technologies the services require to ensure freedom to maneuver through leveraging the Electromagnetic Spectrum and Non-Kinetic Capabilities and discuss issues related to the requirements of EW programs, platforms, and operations.

Unlike filters that merely wall off a range of frequencies, self-interference cancellation directly attacks the interfering signal. Consequently, it can be used to eliminate interference between co-located radios, enable unprecedentedly aggressive frequency reuse, and generally facilitate spectrum sharing by doing away with guard bands and permitting total flexibility in frequency assignments. By virtue of its fundamental nature, self-interference cancellation will have a tremendous impact on the design of future networks. This presentation will discuss the evolution of the technology since its roots at Stanford University, its applications, implementation challenges, and state-of-the-art performance based on dedicated integrated circuits (ICs) that have been developed to enable mass adoption of the technology.</p></p> 4/8/2019 10:02:16 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1206184&amp;group= AGENDA ANNOUNCED: 11th Annual Electronic Warfare Capability Gaps and Enabling Technologies Conference, May 14-16, Crane, IN https://www.crows.org/page/Crane2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63969>April 10, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em><strong>Achieving Freedom to Maneuver Leveraging Non-Kinetic Capabilities</strong></em></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Distinguished Speakers</strong></span></span></p> <p><strong>Mr. Bryan Clark,</strong> Senior Fellow, CSBA<br /><strong>BGEN Frank Kelley,</strong> <strong>USMC (Ret),</strong> Vice President, Defense Acquisition University (DAU)</p> <p><strong><span style="color: #0000ff;"><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.crows.org/resource/resmgr/conferences/2019_conferences/crane/Crane_Agenda_Draft_5-14-19_v.pdf">Click Here to view the Draft Agenda!</a></span></strong></p> <p>This forum provides a venue to for stakeholders, thought-leaders and experts in Electronic Warfare to come together to focus on the technologies the services require to ensure freedom to maneuver through leveraging the Electromagnetic Spectrum and Non-Kinetic Capabilities and discuss issues related to the requirements of EW programs, platforms, and operations.

This immergence of addressable threats, and the low cost per engagement and a deep electrical magazine, allows for DE capabilities to reduce engagement costs and enhance force protection. We are now operating under a new paradigm for DE weapons, where the warfighters and acquisition community need answers on how, and not if or when, DE weapons are to be used. So, this now begs the question: &ldquo;How do we operationalize DE weapons?&rdquo; This brief is intended to introduce DE weapons, will discuss operational issues that must be addressed, and address the typical capabilities and limitations associated with the fielding of DE weapons.</p></p> 4/1/2019 2:44:00 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1212597&amp;group= REGISTER NOW for Next Week's AOC USMC SIGINT Day on Capitol Hill http://www.ecrow.org/pdf/ECrow_Notice_3-11-19.pdf <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63968>April 3, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p>On April 11, AOC Advocacy&rsquo;s <a href="https://www.crows.org/page/SIGINTIPP">SIGINT Industry Partnership Project (IPP)</a> will hold its first <strong>USMC SIGINT Day</strong>, featuring a congressional panel discussion entitled <strong>&ldquo;Winning the EMS: Assessing the Future of USMC SIGINT,&rdquo;</strong> <strong>from 8:30-10:00 AM in 2168 Rayburn House Office Building.</strong> Congressman Paul Cook (Col., USMC Ret.), representative of the 8th District of California, is the honorary host.&nbsp; His congressional district includes the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center and the Marine Air Ground Task Force Training Command at Twentynine Palms, and he is a member of House Armed Services Committee.

This immergence of addressable threats, and the low cost per engagement and a deep electrical magazine, allows for DE capabilities to reduce engagement costs and enhance force protection. We are now operating under a new paradigm for DE weapons, where the warfighters and acquisition community need answers on how, and not if or when, DE weapons are to be used. So, this now begs the question: &ldquo;How do we operationalize DE weapons?&rdquo; This brief is intended to introduce DE weapons, will discuss operational issues that must be addressed, and address the typical capabilities and limitations associated with the fielding of DE weapons.</p></p> 3/25/2019 3:14:18 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1212597&amp;group= EXCITING LINEUP OF SPEAKERS: Security Cooperation Symposium, April 29-May 1, Atlanta, GA https://www.crows.org/page/SCS2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63967>March 27, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><strong><a href="https://www.crows.org/page/SCS2019">Register Now!</a></strong></p> <p>The Association of Old Crows (AOC), and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) look forward to hosting International and U.S. attendees&nbsp; at the GTRI Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia.&nbsp; The AOC/GTRI sponsored symposium will focus on &ldquo;Interoperability, Electronic Warfare (EW), and Foreign Military Sales (FMS).&rdquo;&nbsp; Our goal is to host a world-class event that will serve as a platform for information exchange and education on defense technology interoperability (EW, Communications, Datalinks, Command and Control (C2), and Navigation) and associated U.S. FMS and Export Control policies and processes.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Sponsorship Opportunities are Available!</strong></span>&nbsp;<span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.crows.org/resource/resmgr/conferences/2019_conferences/fms/scs_sponsorship_contract_upd.pdf">Click here for more information.</a></strong></span></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>Keynote and High Ranking Speakers</strong></span></p> <p><strong>Vice Admiral Giuseppe Cavo Dragone, </strong>Italian Navy, Commander of the Italian Joint Operations Headquarters<br /><strong>Lt Gen (Ret) Bob Elder,</strong> USAF, Symposium Chair<br /><strong>Mr. Michael Shoults, SES,</strong> Director of Policy, Programs and Strategy, International Affairs, Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of the Air Force (International Affairs)<br /><strong>Mr. Gregory M.

This webinar will discuss a variety of techniques for using high resolution measurements in range, Doppler, cross-range, and polarization to characterize and classify a radar target. Target recognition will be explored in a variety of contexts for naval, air, and land-based applications. Once the tools for characterizing a radar target are understood, the recognition process will be explored using traditional databases and methodologies. Fortunately, new techniques exist using machine learning that can drastically simplify the classification process, while increasing its accuracy. The logical problem for the Electronic Warfare (EW) community interested in radar target recognition is attempting to deceive these radars. This will require more complex jammer architectures, along with tools to estimate such effects as jet engine modulation on waveforms for use in Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) jammers.</p></p> 3/18/2019 9:14:16 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1209135 CALL FOR PAPERS ENDS NEXT WEEK: 10th Annual Cyber/Electronic Warfare Convergence Conference, June 4-6, Charleston, SC https://www.crows.org/page/Charleston2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63966>March 20, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em><strong>New Technology &amp; Methodology for Mission Assurance in EW/CYBER</strong></em></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://www.crows.org/page/Charleston2019"><strong>Registration is open!</strong></a></span></p> <p>Cyberspace and Electronic Warfare technical capabilities are becoming more technically similar.

This immergence of addressable threats, and the low cost per engagement and a deep electrical magazine, allows for DE capabilities to reduce engagement costs and enhance force protection. We are now operating under a new paradigm for DE weapons, where the warfighters and acquisition community need answers on how, and not if or when, DE weapons are to be used. So, this now begs the question: &ldquo;How do we operationalize DE weapons?&rdquo; This brief is intended to introduce DE weapons, will discuss operational issues that must be addressed, and address the typical capabilities and limitations associated with the fielding of DE weapons.</p></p> 3/18/2019 9:33:39 AM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1212597&amp;group= EXCITING LINEUP OF SPEAKERS: Security Cooperation Symposium, April 29-May 1, Atlanta, GA https://www.crows.org/page/SCS2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63966>March 20, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><strong><a href="https://www.crows.org/page/SCS2019">Register Now!</a></strong></p> <p>The Association of Old Crows (AOC), and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) look forward to hosting International and U.S. attendees&nbsp; at the GTRI Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia.&nbsp; The AOC/GTRI sponsored symposium will focus on &ldquo;Interoperability, Electronic Warfare (EW), and Foreign Military Sales (FMS).&rdquo;&nbsp; Our goal is to host a world-class event that will serve as a platform for information exchange and education on defense technology interoperability (EW, Communications, Datalinks, Command and Control (C2), and Navigation) and associated U.S. FMS and Export Control policies and processes.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Sponsorship Opportunities are Available!</strong></span>&nbsp;<span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong><a style="color: #0000ff;" href="https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.crows.org/resource/resmgr/conferences/2019_conferences/fms/scs_sponsorship_contract_upd.pdf">Click here for more information.</a></strong></span></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>Keynote and High Ranking Speakers</strong></span></p> <p><strong>Vice Admiral Giuseppe Cavo Dragone, </strong>Italian Navy, Commander of the Italian Joint Operations Headquarters<br /><strong>Lt Gen (Ret) Bob Elder,</strong> USAF, Symposium Chair<br /><strong>Lt Gen (Ret) Chris Bogdan,</strong>&nbsp;USAF, Senior Vice President, Booz/Allen/Hamilton<br /><strong>Mr. Michael Shoults, SES,</strong> Director of Policy, Programs and Strategy, International Affairs, Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of the Air Force (International Affairs)<br /><strong>Mr. Gregory M.

This webinar will discuss a variety of techniques for using high resolution measurements in range, Doppler, cross-range, and polarization to characterize and classify a radar target. Target recognition will be explored in a variety of contexts for naval, air, and land-based applications. Once the tools for characterizing a radar target are understood, the recognition process will be explored using traditional databases and methodologies. Fortunately, new techniques exist using machine learning that can drastically simplify the classification process, while increasing its accuracy. The logical problem for the Electronic Warfare (EW) community interested in radar target recognition is attempting to deceive these radars. This will require more complex jammer architectures, along with tools to estimate such effects as jet engine modulation on waveforms for use in Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) jammers.</p></p> 3/11/2019 2:09:39 PM https://www.crows.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1209135 CALL FOR PAPERS: 10th Annual Cyber/Electronic Warfare Convergence Conference, June 4-6, Charleston, SC https://www.crows.org/page/Charleston2019 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=63965>March 13, 2019</a> -- <em>Association News</em></strong><br /><p><em><strong>New Technology &amp; Methodology for Mission Assurance in EW/CYBER</strong></em></p> <p>Cyberspace and Electronic Warfare technical capabilities are becoming more technically similar.
