Electromagnetic Battle Management
Cognitive Electronic Warfare: An Artificial Intelligence Approach
This course will cover how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used in electronic warfare (EW). AI enables EW systems to respond more quickly and effectively to battlefield conditions with complex and novel emitters. The course will discuss AI-based situation assessment techniques for electronic support (ES), including characterization, classification, patterns of life and intent recognition. The course will cover decision-making techniques for electronic protect (EP), electronic attack (EA) and electronic battle management (EBM), including optimization, temporal tradeoffs and distributed coordination. The course will describe how to handle real-time in-mission learning, motivate why this capability is crucial and discuss how to evaluate a system that learns during a mission. It will cover data management approaches and system architecture. The course is based on the book "Cognitive Electronic Warfare: An Artificial Intelligence Approach."
AOC wants our webinars to serve you, our audience, in the best ways possible. To help us succeed, we'd like to hear your thoughts. Please take just a few minutes to complete our 2022 Education Survey below. Thank you!

FTCN in Print: Breaking Down the Congressional Defense Budget Process
In the June 8 podcast episode of From the Crows’ Nest, host Ken Miller had the pleasure of sitting with Madison Strader Arcangeli and Katy Nazaretova from Forza DC, a Washington, DC-based consulting firm, to discuss everyone’s favorite topic—the congressional defense budget process. Esoteric at times and simply frustrating to follow at other times, the budget process, including a range of authorization and appropriations bills, is one of the most important constitutional responsibilities of the US Congress each year.
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.
