Keynote and High Ranking Speakers:

Dr. William (Bill) Conley, Director, Electronic Warfare OUSD(A&S)/A/Platform & Weapon Portfolio Management (P&WPM), US
Mr. Jay Kistler, SES, Director, EW and Countermeasures, OUSD for A,T&L

Check out the draft agenda for this event.


Over the past few years mature, offensive EW activity in Europe has demonstrated that in the electromagnetic domain, warfare is no longer theoretical. The AOC’s 24th European event will consider the future of EW and EM Operations in the changing light of current and emerging threats, including Hybrid Warfare, Information Operations/Warfare, the multi-domain battle (MDB), Cyber and Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) where some potential opponents are excelling. 


The National AOC and Mugu Crows Chapter of the AOC, under a co-sponsorship agreement with 
NAWCWD, will hold the 48th Collaborative Electronic Warfare Symposium at Naval Base Ventura County Pt. Mugu Station Theater, CA. Day One will be classified US Secret Only. Day Two and Day Three sessions will be classified SECRET releasable to Australia. 

Call for Presentations

This call for presentations or demonstrations challenges presenters to explore collaborative EW through innovation and invention. Presentations or demonstrations from all United States and Australian Services, DoD, Industry, and Academ ia are requested to identify technical paths, options, and potential opportunities for EW collaboration with an Electronic Attack focus. Submitted abstracts are specifically requested to address one or more of the symposium sessions: Threat trends, Coherent, Cooperative, and Collaborative Electronic Attack, Collaborative EW enablers to improve EA, and warfighter perspectives.

Abstracts for presentations are required in unclassified textual format. Please forward abstracts to speaker coordinators, Mr. Brian Hill and Mr. Brian Ziegler, at, and to Ms. Christine Armstrong at The submittal deadline is 01 Feb, 2019.

During this 1-hour webinar, we will begin with an overview of the DRFM (Digital RF Memory) architecture and functionality performed and work through several examples of practical DRFM technology concepts including photonics and superconductivity. We will explore design constructs that allow the mathematical models to be realized that enable managing the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) from several band-vantage points.

About the Presenter:

Dr. Phillip Pace is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Ohio University in 1983 and 1986 respectively, and the Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati in 1990, all in electrical and computer engineering.

The Army has created its first unit to combine long-range targeting, hacking, jamming, and space under one command, a vital component of Multi Domain Operations. The battalion-strength Intelligence, Information, Cyber, Electronic Warfare, & Space (I2CEWS) detachment was created at Fort Lewis, Washington to counter China, while a second will follow in Europe for Russia. (Breaking Defense)


The U.S. Air Force could buy a new version of the F-15, known as the F-15X, as long as there is enough money in future defense budgets, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein told Defense News Saturday. And regardless of whether the service does buy the new jets this year, Goldfein said the new aircraft won’t be taking money from the Lockheed Martin F-35. (Defense News)


The U.S. Marine Corps' F/A-18C/D Hornet fighter fleet is getting a radar upgrade. The service selected Raytheon Co. to upgrade the aircraft to the APG-79(v)4 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, according to a company announcement. The radar is a scaled version of the APG-79 AESA, which has been integrated into Super Hornets and EA-18G Growlers. (


Yesterday, we reported on what appeared to be the first image of Russia's much-touted, but never yet to be seen Okhotnik, or Hunter, unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) that had been in development for years and was supposed to start flight testing soon. Now, just a day later, new images have surfaced that offer up a much better look at the aircraft, as well as new insights into the drone's potential capabilities and design limitations. (The Drive)


The US Navy will launch a swarm of interconnected small attack drone boats on mock-combat missions to refine command and control technology and prepare its “Ghost Fleet” of autonomous, yet networked surface craft for war. (The National Interest)
