CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS: 43rd Annual Collaborative EW Symposium: Enabling Collaborative Electronic Warfare through Innovation and Invention, January 29-31 at Pt. Mugu

As EW warfighting requirements continue to evolve in their complexity and interdependency, it is clear that future EW systems must work collaboratively with other Air, Ground, Surface and Space systems, such as Cyber, Intel, Kinetic, and Spectrum Management.

The 43rd Annual Point Mugu Electronic Warfare Symposium will facilitate the exchange of enabling concepts and provide a venue to disseminate current research in the fields of Collaborative Electronic Warfare. Prominent leaders, contributors and representatives from the military, government, academia, and industry will come together to address current Electronic Warfare gaps and emerging technologies in Collaborative Electronic Warfare required to address these gaps.

This call for presentations or demonstrations challenges presenters to explore the way forward in enabling collaborative EW through innovation and invention. Presentations or demonstrations from all Services, DoD, Industry, and Academia are requested that identify technical paths, options, and potential opportunities for EW collaboration.

Submitted Abstracts are specifically requested to address one or more of the symposium sessions: Collaborative EW innovation and invention, cognitive and adaptive EW technologies, coordinated/distributed networked-enabled systems, and warfighter perspectives. Amplifying information on these supporting topics and draft agenda are referenced below.

Abstracts for presentations are required in unclassified textual format and may be received as email or email enclosures. Please forward abstracts to our speaker coordinators, Mr. Michael Herrera, at michael.a.herrera1@navy.mil and Ms. Miranda Fulk at fulk@crows.org. The deadline is 10 Dec 2012.

REGISTER NOW! Discuss How We Shape the Battlefield at the AOC Land EW Conference, Dec. 11-13 in Quantico, Va.
Within many military circles, it is becoming more and more evident that the electromagnetic spectrum and its manipulation, with a variety of tool sets, will dictate the actions of commanders in the 21st century. Whether monitoring a ground radar or leading from an operations center, the increased attention revolving around cyberspace and activities associated with the information environment are warranted given their ability to manipulate a commander’s perception of the battlefield. From an EMS perspective, the challenge is twofold: identifying the right technologies and then institutionalizing their use. Effective manipulation of the EMS requires that members clearly understand their roles and responsibilities so as to ensure spectrum activities support a commander’s intent.

The AOC Land EW Conference provides focus on technological and organizational efforts, from land component perspective toward meeting these ends. Sessions and demonstrations provide evidence of how the U.S. and Allied services are implementing technology and changing organizational paradigms in order to manipulate the EMS environment.

President Obama may believe he can abandon "nation-building abroad" to focus on "nation-building at home," but that is what he would normally call a "false choice." In his next term he will face major challenges abroad, not just challenges of "nation-building" but threats to our national security. (The New York Times)

It's 2025 and an American "triple canopy" of advanced surveillance and armed drones fills the heavens from the lower- to the exo-atmosphere. A wonder of the modern age, it can deliver its weaponry anywhere on the planet with staggering speed, knock out an enemy's satellite communications system, or follow individuals biometrically for great distances.

Maritime territorial disputes and security problems have caused the Asian market for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) to continue expanding. China’s aggressive behavior in the East China and South China seas over the past two years has rattled the region. And continued concerns over piracy and other security issues in the Malacca Strait and Singapore Strait feed Singapore’s quest for "sense-making" by the military, say regional defense industry sources.

Four years ago it was revealed that terrorists were eavesdropping on UAV video being sent to American ground troops in Iraq. This caused an uproar in the media when the military explained that the video feed was unencrypted, which was unusual and caused much indignation among pundits. (Strategy Page)

Gina McLaughlin, floor manager at one of the manufacturing labs at BAE Systems on Spit Brook Road in Nashua, is all business as she prepares to take a reporter into an inner sanctum of a high-security production area. "No pencils, no cell phones, no cameras," she says as we don smocks and walk across a sticky floor surface designed to remove particles from the soles of our shoes. (New Hampshire Union-Leader)

Al Qaeda has released a statement written by Ayman al Zawahiri this past summer in which the terror chieftain outlines several goals for Muslims to strive toward. While failing to mention the toll al Qaeda's attacks have taken on Muslim civilians, Zawahiri says that the Muslim Ummah faces the "most vicious Crusader campaign in its history," according to a translation provided by SITE Intelligence Group.
