HF meets Big Data – Intercept in an era of HF Renaissance
Presented by: Dr. Ronald Meixner

In an era of increasingly sophisticated digital attack vectors through cyberspace as well as Electronic Warfare techniques, critical businesses seeking resilient communication are turning to HF. At the same time state actors, seeking to dodge surveillance or needing long-range communication see HF as a low key less monitored channel.

In this presentation we will detail specific propagation challenges of HF DF and discuss how big data tech can be applied to make the interception and DF process faster and simpler. We will investigate latest techniques for HF propagation analysis in a DF context, from time of day issues through sun spot activity impacts.

Attendees will receive a refresher of decades of HF and DF accumulated knowledge and be brought right up to date on the latest algorithmic and processing methods that are fundamentally changing the operators role for good.

Be sure to check out the full 2021 schedule to sign up for more webinars.

 

Only a few days remain to submit an abstract to be part of the CEMA 2021 program. The conference will be taking place in-person on May 25-26 at the Water’s Edge Event Center in Belcamp, MD. Review the program description below and if the subject matter falls into your expertise, submit your abstract by February 26.

Focus on the Future
(MDO 2035 and Beyond)
By 2035, as the Joint Force responds to adversaries contesting international norms in either competition or armed conflict, it will conduct operations in an emerging operational environment shaped by four interrelated characteristics: adversaries are contesting all domains, the EMS, and the information environment and U.S. dominance is not assured. This event will focus on DOTMLPF considerations for an MDO 2035 ready Army and how emerging technologies in electronic warfare, cyber, signals intelligence, information operations, and other forms of non-kinetic fires will support such operational formations.

AOC Raytheon STEM Student of the Year Scholarship

A fundamental part of the AOC's mission is investing in the next generation of Crows. One of the most significant ways we do this is by providing the AOC/Raytheon Scholarship to sophomore and junior year college students. We provide two scholarships annually, each in the amount of $12,500, to students studying in the fields of engineering or engineering technology. These scholarships are funded by a generous donation from Raytheon Intelligence & Space. Applicants must be Sophomores or Juniors in the 2021-2022 school year and must apply by April 31, 2021.

Chapter News
  

A truly historic space event took place February 18; NASA landed its fifth rover, Perseverance, on the surface of Mars.

The main mission is to search for signs of microbial life in the soil, collecting samples in the hopes a future mission can bring them back to earth. This is something that’s never been done before. Georgia Tech senior Breanna Ivey tested out the math that helps the rover move during an internship last year.

“It will be exciting anyway, if I didn’t have a role in it, but it’s even more exciting to know that I touched something that is going to land on Mars and be the first step in a mission to actually bring samples back,” Ivey said. From Macon, GA, Ivey has been a recipient of the Dixie Crow Education Foundation STEM Scholarship the last four years while attending Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA.
