Cyber Electromagnetic Activities and Signals Intelligence: A Command and Control Framework
Presented by: Claudio Santo Malavenda
The presentation will address a possible implementation of a support system that, after the COA development phase of a “Cyber Electromagnetic Activity & Signal Intelligence” (CEMAS), gives support to its Wargaming. The wargaming has a focus on integration of systems, integration of platforms and their kinematic model in real world. Focus is on equipment’s interaction with the spectrum during the operation, using sensors (ESM, ECM CESM, CECM) during missions or intelligence (ELINT, COMINT) and in cyberspace (cyber-attacks simulators and network anomalies revealers in the blue team). In addition, a similar wargaming must necessarily provide people in the loop, so that they can conduct the COA using instances of real command and control and management systems onboard the platforms listed in COA/ECOA.
In the presentation, we will see that such an environment, it becomes itself a System of Systems, with people conducting some features incorporated within the same environment. Learn more.

Back and better than ever. The AOC’s EMS Virtual Summit was so highly successful in 2020 we are bringing it back in 2021.
This one-day Virtual EMS Summit will have sessions and discussions that focus on Collaborative Electromagnetic Warfare, Force Level Electromagnetic Warfare, and other EW related topics.

RF Theory for ES Operations
March 22-26, 2021
Monday, Wednesday & Friday | 1-4 PM EDT
Course Length: 9 hours total - delivered across 3 sessions of 3-hours each.
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.
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.
Do you have a child, sibling, cousin, neighbor, or friend studying in the fields of engineering or engineering technology? Encourage them to apply!
Applicants must be Sophomores or Juniors in the 2021-2022 school year and must apply by April 31, 2021.

The Dixie Crow Symposium Committee, Dixie Crow Chapter President Adam Delestowicz, and the Chapter Directors cordially invite you to join us for all the exciting events Dixie Crow Symposium 45 has to offer. Thank you in advance for your support of this important Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations trade show.
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.
The Association of Old Crows is pleased to provide its online Career Center - the premier resource to connect career opportunities with highly qualified EW, EMSO, CEMA, SIGINT, ELINT, & IO talent. You can access the AOC Career Center at https://careers.crows.org.
