The next AOC Virtual Series webinar is this Thursday. There's still time and space to register:

Thursday, March 18, 2021 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM EST
Reducing SWaP for Embedded Military Systems
Presented by Mark Walker

Will discuss trends and techniques on reducing SWaP-C in electronic warfare, radar, sensors systems. Reduced size, weight and power – cost (SWaP-C) describe nearly every military program’s goals for electronics be they tech refreshes or new Radar designs. System integrators want solutions with increased performance, lower power and lower costs, and they want them in the same or smaller footprint as the previous design. There are multiple ways to accomplish through multi-chip packaging, MMIC and RFIC integration, and advanced manufacturing processes. This is especially true in meeting today’s military electronic solution requirements. This webcast will cover how we are addressing some of these challenges as well as innovations that enable reduced SWaP and enhanced performance. Learn more.

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

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.

Register now.

Chapter News
  

The 2021 Dixie Crow Chapter’s Crow’s N.E.S.T. (Novel Experiments with Science & Technology) STEM Event focused on providing monetary donations to surrounding schools to supplement teachers’ STEM classroom planning. The chapter also provided all participating students with t-shirts displaying industry logos and names of our Dixie Crow Chapter Education Foundation Donors! We greatly appreciate your support educating our “Leaders of Tomorrow!"

Robert Usher and Adam Delestowicz delivered the t-shirts, receiving many thank you notes:
“Thank you so much for the STEM grant. The generous donation will enable the AP Physics class to purchase additional lab equipment.”

“We look forward to being able to attend the symposium in person next year. It is such a valuable experience for our students to speak with professionals who utilize STEM in their careers. We appreciate your continued support of STEM in our schools.”
