Cyber Electromagnetic Activity (CEMA) 2023
May 2-4 | Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD

Spectrum Dominance — Maneuvering as an “Inside” Force

Hosted by AOC, PEO IEW&S/C5ISR, and the AOC Susquehanna APG Roost, CEMA 2023's intent is to bring the community together to educate, discuss and strategize these technical needs. We anticipate 800+ representatives from military, government, industry and academia supporting PEO IEW&S, CCDC/DEVCOM and related organizations from APG and other areas. All attendees will be encouraged to tour the exhibits to learn about your unique solutions and insights. This conference will be held US Secret Only.

Submit an abstract today! Potential conflicts against near peer threats such as China and Russia pose significant challenges. These and other world powers have constructed anti-access area-denial infrastructure in an attempt to counter and keep at bay U.S. capabilities that would otherwise overwhelm our adversaries. The US will not have the luxury of home field advantage, so utilizing the electromagnetic spectrum to penetrate that A2/AD bubble during conflict and maneuver as an “inside force” will be key to any outcome.

Submission deadline: Jan. 27

Evaluating Current EW Innovation in Context of Current Real World Conflicts

The war in Ukraine has identified the relevance of collaborative EW in support of rapid unfolding operations, with rapid adaptation and innovation contributing to the fight. What does this conflict teach us about what to do and what not to do in the spectrum? Who else will learn these lessons and to what result?”

The 50th year of the Collaborative EW Symposium at Pt. Mugu will provide a venue to disseminate current research in the fields of collaborative EW with an emphasis on innovation in collaborative EW. Prominent leaders, contributors and representatives from the United States and Australian military, government, academia and industry will come together to address emerging technologies required to address current dynamic operations.
