Testing Your RWR - Accuracy Matters
Nov. 3 | 2-3 p.m. EDT

Accuracy is of the utmost importance when testing a radar warning receiver and maintaining the highest accuracy of your test system is essential. One is only as strong as the other or else you might be initiating countermeasures miles off-target. This presentation will explore how measurement errors and inaccuracies in your test system can compromise the effectiveness of an EW system. We will describe the calibration procedures that can be implemented to achieve higher EW system performance and traceability necessary for the assurance test and evaluation engineers seek.

How We Can Better Protect Critical Infrastructure

We often focus most on developing offensive capability, but countermeasures are often overlooked and command & control systems are left completely vulnerable. Host Ken Miller talks with David Tilton and Dr. Nathan Hansen of the Electromagnetic Security Consortium (ESC) to find out how we can provide greater protection for critical infrastructure and military systems by improving our electromagnetic security against emerging threats. David and Nathan share how we can pursue new standards for electromagnetic protection, how to create more urgency around the issues and why industry and government need an entity like the ESC to increase electromagnetic security.

David Tilton is the acting executive director of the Electromagnetic Security Consortium. Dr. Nathan Hansen is CEO of the Conductive Group and Chairman of the ESC.
