Electromagnetic Warfare Capability Gaps and Enabling Technologies 2023 Conference
May 16-18 | Crane, IN
Theme: Force Level Electromagnetic Warfare
The overall goal of this signature conference for Electromagnetic Warfare (EW) professionals from the military, government, industry and academic fields is to discuss issues related to achieving Force Level EW and Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) capabilities across the Services. Technical panels and keynote speakers will address EW and EMSO requirements and emerging technologies necessary to support joint warfighting and achieve an enduring advantage in the electromagnetic spectrum. Government and military leaders across the Department of Defense will present the essential role of EW and EMSO in Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), Joint Long-Range Fires and Information Advantage and exchange with the EW community how innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are needed to advance collaborative and agile solutions to persistent gaps in our joint warfighting capabilities.

5G Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) – Technology Outlook and Evolution
May 4 | 2 p.m. ET
With 3GPP Release 17, the 5G system is “learning to fly” and technology wise 5G will enable satellite based connectivity. But it will present a long technology evolution and the NTN will be further enhanced. Those enhancements allow the incorporation of more processing power into the satellites known as regenerative mode or will enable other airborne stations beside satellites and also enhance the interoperability of terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks. Combined with the trend of private networks, there are various options to incorporate NTN ad hoc networks into private networks. This webinar will discuss the technology details of 5G NTN and the technology evolution of “beyond satellite” on the long term path to 6G unified networks.

Where Does JADC2 Stand Today?
The topic of Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) always brings up many different perspectives and ideas for its execution and implementation. Ken Miller talks with EW Writer and Analyst Dr. Thomas Withington about the latest developments of JADC2 and its implications for modern warfare.
Dr. Withington is the newsletter editor for Armada International and shares his analysis of what JADC2 is working to accomplish. Ken and Dr. Withington compare how JADC2 would unfold against a strategic competitor like China versus an acute threat like Russia. They also discuss the need for improved inter-service collaboration, the importance of data standardization and risk-management approach when implementing AI and ML technologies and JADC2’s ability to improve decision-making on the battlefield.
