AI Guided Spectrum Operations
Presented by Nicholas Ortyl
From autonomous vehicles to autonomous markets, it is becoming clear that solutions comprised of autonomous intelligent agents are changing the way we get things done. In situations involving “person-in-the-loop” style systems, we continue to push the human operator out of the tighter, faster inner loops and into a more supervisory role. This push from the center is for good reason: for what autonomous systems lack in ingenuity, they make up for in untiring and unrelenting attention and speed.
This seminar will discuss an AI system that is computationally efficient, scalable and in compliance with the Defense Innovation Board Recommendations on AI Ethical Guidelines. More.

We are currently accepting nominations for the 2021 AOC Awards Program! A central tenant of the AOC's mission is recognizing individuals, groups, and military units for their outstanding performance in furthering the aims of the AOC and the Electromagnetic Warfare enterprise. AOC has a number of awards that are available each year, with two categories - Competitive and Non-Competitive. Find out more at crows.org/awards.
The Invisible Battlefield
The US military must chart a new course to project, achieve, and sustain electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) superiority against peer competitors. What technology and operational concepts must the Department of Defense (DOD) adopt to address these challenges and persistent gaps in US electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO)? In this episode, we speak with Bryan Clark, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Defense Concepts and Technology at the Hudson Institute. Bryan is the lead author of a new report, “The Invisible Battlefield: A Technology Strategy for US Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority.”
Ken and Bryan discuss the need to invest in game-changing technologies, such as passive and multi-static sensing, networked electronic attack, and multi-function capabilities. They also address improved combat training through the use of live, virtual and constructive environments and the opportunities for open system architecture.
You can download and read the Hudson Institute's full report. To learn more about today’s topics or to stay updated on EMSO and EW developments, visit our homepage.
