How to Conduct 30+ Capability Demonstrations on CMOSS Mounted Form Factor (CMFF) Prototype in 12 months Without Breaking the Bank!
Aug. 4 | 2-3 p.m. EDT

CMOSS provides the hardware and messaging foundation of a Modular Open System Architecture (MOSA) that ensures commonality across a broad and growing sensor vendor base.

The formal integration of CMOSS into SOSA has given rise to the shorthand term “CMOSS/SOSA” which falsely suggests equivalence. CMOSS is an important but limited subset of SOSA in that SOSA also applies MOSA principles to applications, operating systems and platform interfaces. Thus, allowing for true convergence and standardized access and control of the RF chain, “SOSA with CMOSS” ensures the DoD objectives of JADC2, Project Convergence and other important defense initiatives may be rapidly prototyped, operationalized and eventually, modernized in place.The CMFF architecture has enabled Pacific Defense to perform more than 30 CMOSS-related demonstrations over the last 12 months for all the services without breaking the bank.

This talk will demonstrate the ability of CMOSS and SOSA to deliver war fighter the ability to conduct mission in a dynamic environment.

Cognitive Electronic Warfare: An Artificial Intelligence Approach
Sept. 12-28 | Mondays & Wednesdays | 1-4 p.m. EDT

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."

EMBM Situational Awareness: Data Integration, Visualization and Analytics
Aug. 11 | 2-3 p.m. EDT

The foundation of modern electromagnetic battle management (EMBM) in complex electromagnetic operating environments for Joint Force operations is situational awareness (S/A). S/A for joint force EMBM is vital to enabling freedom of action in the EMS. This EMBM S/A capability creates spectrum S/A in the combatant commands' joint EMSO cells on adversary, friendly and neutral spectrum participation. Consolidation, correlation and predictive analysis of disparate data sets by this modern technology stack is paving the way for commanders, planners and operators from the tactical to strategic levels to make rapid, high-quality decisions to gain a decisive advantage in the EMS.

In this webinar, participants will get a look at the current foundational product for EMBM and see one system that enables the ingest of numerous data sets (friendly, adversary and neutral) and allows for visualization, correlation and engineering analysis of them. This webinar will be a first look into the demonstration environment of DODs first cloud hosted EMBM capability that will launch into SIPR later this year.

How Are We Doing With Army EW?

Host Ken Miller sits down with Eric Colon, Director, Strategic Solutions for EW and Cyber at Corvus Consulting, LLC. Eric is a senior subject-matter expert on the evolution of Army electronic warfare and cyber electromagnetic activities (CEMA). Ken and Eric discuss how the Army is facing and array of complex threats stemming from China, Russia and other peer competitors. Now more than a decade since the inception of the Army EW structure that we know today, how is the Army addressing these challenges stemming from this new concept of an “invisible battlefield?” They also delve into the Army EW budget currently before Congress and lessons that the Army is learning from the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
