This presentation is an introduction to HPM DE Weapons and their effects. We will cover, what is an HPM DE weapon, the type of weapons – Narrowband and Wideband, why the Warfighter and DoD are interested in this technology, how HPM DEWs are similar to, but different from traditional Electronic Warfare/Attack (EW/EA) and Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP). We will also cover how the HPM energy couples in to a target’s electronics via intentional and unintentional Ports of Entry and the type of effects it can cause ranging from long term electronic upset to permanent damage. We will also cover some of the basic modeling and simulation (M&S) tools for computing/estimating the probability of target failure as a function of weapon power density and range. Finally, we will discuss mitigation techniques and show an example of how to estimate hardening parameters for a notional helicopter against an HPM weapon.

RF Theory for ES Operations
Dr. Patrick Ford | 12/8/2020 – 12/10/2020 | Web Course
After a thorough overview of key electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) concepts, with an emphasis on the RF spectrum and commensurate propagation mechanisms and environmental impacts, the instructor will present several ES placement scenarios (air, sea and land) to address the advantages, disadvantages, and challenges associated with various RF wavelengths. This will include a one-hour 'hands-on' ES practical exercise for participants, with the instructor reviewing/highlighting possible approaches to the problem set upon completion. The course will also provide a survey of propagation modeling techniques and insight into modern RF operating trends.

The AOC bridges the gap between Electromagnetic Warfare practitioners, Industry partners, Policymakers, and procurement decision-makers.
For over 55 years, Electronic Warfare (EW), Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations
(EMSO), Cyber-Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA), and Information Operations (IO) professionals from military, government, industry, and academia have looked to the Association of Old Crows (AOC) to provide access to emerging technologies and the latest developments to protect the warfighter.

Either EMS Professionals know about your organization’s products, capabilities and technologies… or they don’t!
By partnering with the AOC, Industry Partners have a variety of ways to connect with members throughout the year. Stay relevant to your customer base, participate in high-level discussions and, most importantly, nurture relationships with key contacts.

AOC Conferences, Webinars, Courses, Career Center, and the Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention are the perfect place to:

- Target a niche audience or reach out to a broad market, depending on event topic andattendee composition
- Develop personal relationships with clients
- Showcase a full product range
- Get immediate feedback and accelerate the buying process
- Launch a new product
- Raise brand awareness

January 14, 14:00 - 15:00 EST (19:00 - 20:00 UTC)

This one-hour webinar delivers an overview of Integrated Air Defense Systems (IADS). We will look at the evolution of IADS from WWII through the Vietnamese War to current times. We will spend some time on the North Vietnamese IADS and the US reaction to it since many of the key EW technologies were developed during this engagement. We will also look at the individual components of the IADS, early warning/ground control intercept (EW/GCI) radar network, command and control (C2) systems, communications networks, airborne interceptors (AI), surface to air missiles (SAM), and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA). We will also consider the overall architecture of the IADS.
