Low SWAP Multifunctional Electronic Warfare System Development
In this webinar, we will review small form factor multifunction EW system design. The discussion will include modular and scalable hardware and software design trades, simulation and performance evaluation. New model-based design workflows will be discussed that enable functional allocation trades to GPUs/FPGAs/Processors through simulation. The discussion will conclude with system performance evaluation and deployment approaches using hardware in the loop simulation and prototype hardware.
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 Continues to Connect Electromagnetic Warfare Practitioners, Industry Partners, Policymakers and Procurement Decision-Makers.
The year 2020 was a massive interruption to life and business, changing how we work, how we connect and forced us into a new way of doing things. We have created new ways to connect and share with our members through these changing times. We have taken events to a virtual space and created new and exciting opportunities for our members to continue looking to AOC as industry leaders.
Now more than ever, it's important to keep in touch and AOC sponsorships are a great way to be part of what's happening right now in the electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) industry.

Nuclear Weapons Policy in the Age of Great Power Competition
In today’s episode of From the Crows’ Nest, Dr. Adam Lowther joins Host Ken Miller to discuss the evolution of US nuclear weapons policy since the end of the Cold War and into this new age of Great Power Competition. Global security is changing rapidly, and we are required to rethink our underlying assumptions, especially as Russia invades Ukraine and China opportunistically takes advantage of current events to strengthen its strategic goals in the Pacific. Dr. Lowther is an author and editor of a new book entitled, Guide to Nuclear Deterrence in the Age of Great-Power Competition. He is currently the Director of Multidomain Operations at the Army Management Staff College at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. He was the founding director of the US Air Force’s School of Advanced Nuclear Deterrence Studies at Kirtland Air Force Base. The views expressed are his own and do not represent those of the United States government.
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.

National Guard teams from across New England partnered with other military services and the private sector to practice fending off cyberattacks and dealing with their fallout. The annual Cyber Yankee exercise, held June 5-18 at Camp Nett in Connecticut, provided participants with valuable insights and tactical experience that can now be applied in the real world, where digital attacks on critical infrastructure and commerce are increasingly common, according to Guard officials.

In the early days of the war in Ukraine, drones emerged as an unexpected source of victory against Russian forces. But Russia has learned from the humiliation by drones in the first months of the invasion. Experts told Insider that the drone wonder weapons are becoming increasingly ineffective because Russia has improved its defense systems and is downing and jamming many of Ukraine's drones.
