WE NEED YOUR VOICE: Virtual UAS/RPA Requirements for Battlespace Control Working Group, December 13-14 in Las Vegas, NV
The face of electronic warfare is changing ... even becoming faceless. How do we equip the unmanned enterprise to succeed in electronic warfare?

The transition to UAV/RPAs is not as simple as it sounds EW is not a pod. All facets of DOTMLPF must be addressed; we need you there to do this right. Join us for this critical working group session, December 13-14 at Nellis AFB and the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, where we will address current payload and operational shortfalls and the way ahead.

The AOC has a block of rooms at the Rio Hotel that are available for attendees. Discounted rooms are going quickly, so book today!

UPCOMING COURSE: Survey of EW Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Applications and Payloads, December 12
Until recently EW has been a marginal UAV mission; however, this situation will significantly change in the near future as EW payloads are produced and integrated into operations. Proliferation of EW payloads in the future also may open the door to new operational concepts such as cooperative SIGINT and electronic attack from multiple UAVs. This course reviews contemporary and planned future uses of unmanned aerial systems related to electronic warfare.

INDUSTRY NEWS: U.S. Air Force Looks to Dramatically Extend F-15 Service Life
Boeing has launched a four-year structural analysis of the U.S. Air Force F-15 fleet, with the aim of doubling to quadrupling the service lives of the two major variants. The USAF has also revealed new interest in critical avionics and mission system upgrades for the 40-year-old airframe, as it seeks to keep at least some of its 414 F-15C/D fighters and F-15E fighter/bombers flying for decades to come.
